I found this article and maybe I shouldn't have done this, but I posted this on my web site to better explain to people about why cakes cost what they do. I feel like people need to be educated on what really goes into a cake. What do you think?

great article.

Is it copyrighted? 'Cause if it's not, I'm gonna borrow liberally. If it is, then I won't violate their rights.

I went to a website, www.loveofcake.com. That's not the correct site, is it?

Oh, no, you're OK. No problems. None at all.

I didn't want to violate her rights by *republishing* parts of that on MY website. It's just such a great article.

It is a really great article! You could probably just put the whole article on your website with her name on it. Or start a little tab and call it Articles about the Industry and include the link.

Thanks for sharing!

I put the whole article in it's own page titled "What goes into pricing".

I am not 100% happy with that page title.

Any Suggestions?

Thanks for posting this article...It will be nice for everyone to share with their customers when they get that telltale look in the eyes of "it's just sugar & flour".....
