This is maybe a silly question - but what makes a favorite cake? Sometimes I make a cake and I think to myself - wow girl this one is good - I put it on CC and I do not even get 1 favorite. Other times I put a photo of a cake on CC, I'm not too happy with the cake and then it is the favorite of 1 or more persons. As I said it is maybe silly, but I have only been baking for 1 year now and I am always looking for approval, even on my customer's faces. If they do not say anything or even look happy I would be upset for a few days, thinking they did not like the cake.
I favorite cakes that I want to try, and cakes that are so technically perfect all I can do is marvel at them
Sandysdream - I was thinking the same thing. Mostly, I think it's just a matter of the timing that your picture is posted.
Yeh, at any given time, there are lots of photos being posted on here. And if you notice when you go to the homepage, only a few show up on the "New Pics Posted" section. Otherwise, they just go into the pages of the gallery for people to sort through.
I never use cc recipes, but for pictures a favorite can be any type of cake, good bad or otherwise... alot of my favs are ones that are amazing, but alot others are cake that i like a certain element or has something in it i need to replicate for a cake order I have...
i think for recipes people are probably hesistant to try a recipe with no ratings or favs or comments it may be great but maybe no one will try it!
