I draw my cakes, but I also save a lot of cakes in my Favs for inspiration. Your pictures don't have to be works of art, just rough sketches. If you can draw a round thing and a squareish thing, I think you'll be okay. icon_smile.gif

there is a gallery for templates here and there are several blank cake templates in there that are great for printing out and sketching on.

You don't have to be a perfect artist to sketch a cake.

Start with boxes to represent the cake. Use symbols for the elements. For example, * could mean a rose.

HTH!
