I'm soooo excited! If you have a minute, please let me know what you think of my new website and if you see anything I should adjust!

Thanks so much!

I like your site, but unless you have had some serious run in with copyright issues, I think you have information overload in tha area. icon_smile.gif

Site Name Here - the title of the page says "Site Name Here" (see how this one is "Hooray!!" etc..). Put the name of your bakery

I'd make the slideshow a little faster and with a smooth transistion between the photo.

LOVE THE BACKGROUND!

I see the "GEt a Cake" is not an actual link. It's set-up so it is. I would try to take out the hyperlink language so it doesn't seem like it it.

THe ordering page should have a link or order form on there. Don't tell me to go somewhere for ordering and then once I get there tell me to go somewhere else. Make it easy for the visitor.

It the $4 for buttercream or fondant??

On the ordering page, I would put all the process above the flavors. In my mind that just makes more sense. I'm even tempted to say to put the flavors on a separate "Cake Options" page.

I would rename "Legal" to Copyright info. I clicked there thinking it was going to tell me that you are legal and licensed.

I would also take "Ordering" "Legal" and "Customer Feedback" out from under "Get a Cake". They are standalone pages and as I mentioned previous "Get a Cake" isn't even a link.

I really like your "About Me" page. Even as a writer, I struggled/struggle writing my About Me page. I think mine sucks.

Overall - I REALLY like it! Don't think I'm being picky. I noted on another thread that I manage about 4-6 different sites and I'm always trying to improve them - and I am NO where near 100% happy with them.

Oh, and CONGRATS!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS!!! icon_smile.gif Site looks great! Very professional. I agree with some of ccr03's suggestions. I wonder about making the Legal and Copyright info a smaller link at the bottom of the page. While it is all very important...probably not the most important info for a potential customer.
Love the colors and overall layout. Great job!
