First of all, I love your cakes! I love how you used butterflies on your quilted cake! You have a style going on and I just love it!

As for the website, I really don't have any tips. I have this affordable web designer who helps me update things for free. She also did Cake Journal, Sweetopia and many other sites.

Do you currently have a website? Would someone be degining it for you? Godaddy.com is a great place to purchase domains and get started if you don't already have a domain.

I used GoDaddy.com to register my domain, super simple. I use Squarespace.com to host my site. Squarespace is designed for the novice web designer and has a ton of great pre-fab tools you can customize to your heart's content. My site is not used for selling, it's just a hobby, but you could easily set up 'for purchase' pages for online orders or expand the "Email Me" for detailed product inquiries. Good luck! thumbs_up.gif
