Does anyone else desire to know more about the cake pictures posted in the gallery? I'd like to know pan sizes, flavor combinations, and type of icing/fondant used, rather than saying round, pink buttercream, when the cake is obviously pink and round. I do enjoy the stories behind some of the cakes, also: who it was for, occassion, troubles/joys of making it. Thanks.

You can always send someone a PM and ask them about the details of the cake. Most people love to talk about their creations.

I like to read descriptions like you're talking about, but you'll probably discover that many people don't. A lot of them are looking for ideas they can use and that's it.

I always read the description, it usually makes me like the cake even more. Yes it would be nice for more details, I have sent a number of PM's asking questions and most are very helpful and friendly.

I agree with Texas_Rose. I enjoy reading the descriptions and the ins and outs, but I know most people are busy, and just don't take the time to type a long description.

I don't mind at all if someone is interested in one of my cakes and wants to pm me with questions. I have received lots of help and answers to my questions on here, so I certainly don't mind giving tips in return! icon_smile.gif

Send them a PM. Yep, I don't care much for descriptions. It matters not to me whether the cake is chocolate or snozzberry, I'm checking out the craftsmanship and detail work.

As a Newbie, I find the descriptions extremely helpful. There are so many things I am learning from all of you and the descriptions really are nice to have.

I agree. I wish all the cake pics had insturctions/directions with it. I come on here to get ideas for my next cake and if it's something i've never done before a little description would go a long way.

So funny how folks are different. I like to know every little detail and enjoy making the cake as much as decorating it. My sister could care less about the baking/filling - she just likes decorating. She wishes all cakes could be dummies.

Yes, I love reading the descriptions too. I love the "back story"...and also love reading what cake flavor combos were used...that gives me ideas too. Like recently I read about a hot cocoa cake recipe was used in someones descriptions and recently read in the description how the cake being showed was taken to a cancer patient etc...it touched my heart to read that description......so yeh, I love reading the description and wish more people would include one.
