I just spent hours and hours updating my website and was hoping I could get some opinions from my family on CC. TIA, Jenn.

I don't know what your website looked like before, but I love the way it looks. Everything is easy to find and I like that you can scroll over the cake to find out how many it serves and the price you charged for it.

BTW - your cakes are BEAUTIFUL!!! icon_smile.gif

Thanks! It took forever for me to figure out how to do that but I think it was worth it because I love how professional it makes it look.

' ' appears infrom of orange in standard flavours, and chocolate pound cake in the specialty flavours.

on the flowers, it says click for serving sizes and prices... no servings or prices there. just might want to change, but not a big deal i dont think.

your logo on the home page looks blurry too. might just be my computer/ screen size though?

your cakes are gorgeous! and i like the site too in general icon_smile.gif dont know/ remember what it was like before though!

really like the way you price each cake out, and that the info is easy to find, and detailed too.

Looks good, your cakes look excellent, but you need to use a better quality pic of your logo on the front page. Did you scale it up? (It needs to be a vectored image so it doesn't lose quality when you make it bigger.)

On the contact page it should be Enquiry not Inquiry. Some people might be put off submitting a lot of personal info over a non secure page., maybe omit the address field

I personally would like to see a bigger font, only because i'm old!

Overall. great job!

Thanks for all your input so far. I have made changes to the typos and also used a bigger font for you taniabanana. I also scaled back the logo size so it won't be blury.

Your site looks great! The only thing I spotted was on the "FAQ" page. The last sentence says "...I love to help your design your own wedding cake." I believe it should read "...I love to help you design your own wedding cake."

I had an English/Lit. teacher in h.s. who took pictures of signs and printed out pages off the internet of misspellings and such when he saw them and hung them up in the classroom. Ever since then I have been always been able to pick those type of things out fairly quickly. (Thanks Mr. Stilwell!! LOL)

I think the website looks great, the only thin I would add is that I didn't see any reference to your geographical area? You could put something like "serving the greater Fort Worth-Dallas area" or something like that to indicate your general area.

I didn't see it the first time...I love how the images at the top come together like puzzle pieces! I would love to do something exciting like that to mine!

Thanks for all the input. I have made all the changes suggested so far. I really appreciate all the input. I knew you would spot all the things I missed after staring at the HTML code for hours and hours.

Your site looks very professional. I did notice some pricing incosistencies. You state that your carved/specialty cakes start at $125, yet the wine bottle cake has a label that says $80.

Thanks Snarkybaker. Made the changes. See that's why I asked you guys to look. I knew you would set me straight!

consider adding one of the many Facebook icons with the section "Buy Me Cake on Facebook" so users can immediately recognize its purpose and click on it.

this may be a little nit-picky, but if you can adjust the link colors to better suit your overall design, that'd be neat. by default, the links i haven't clicked on are blue and visited links are purple. that unfortunately clashes with your lovely rose colored site.

i love how fast your gallery pages load.

overall, nice job, i'm definitely bookmarking it!
