I just can't believe some of these cakes! I see so many colorful fondant cakes and wonder if they color the fondant themselves or buy it? The colors are so vibrant! I can't imagine how much some of these cakes cost to make!

This place is amazing...my work has grown SO much just by being here, reading the forums (or as I call them "cake school") and being inspired by the work. The people here are SO helpful too when you are trying to master a new skill. Makes diving off into a scary new technique a lot less daunting!

Haha, I've been wondering the same thing! My favs are overflowing! This site is better than pastry school lol. "Cake central school! Get the addiction." It has a nice snazzy ring to it! =P

I totally agree with everyone else!! I have learned so much from this site. My husband just said to me don't you ever get tired of cake stuff. I told him no (I am addicted to this site I am afraid if I miss a night I will miss something) I have not learned how to go back and find everything yet. I also agree to I wish we could put our favorite pictures in categories. thumbs_up.gif

I agree and I think it's BECAUSE of this site that there are so many outstanding cakes being posted. I know in the 5 years that I've been coming here that I've learned far more than I've ever learned anywhere else. It's a Cake Central Addiction for sure!

icon_surprised.gif your kidding me - right?
Rylan - the forum stops when one of your cake photos is posted.
And it gets very crowded as we all queue to leave a omment - icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

It is sooo nice to see some of the cool cakes being posted. It gives me something fresh to aspire to, all the time.

My only wish with the galleries, whether it be faves, or not- I wish we could just scroll down, through them all, instead of going through page by page. It seems very time consuming.

I love the site though, I spend way too much time on here. icon_smile.gif

Ya know......before i got addicted to this site I used to watch shows like Ace of Cakes and just wish I could do something like that but didnt think its possible. Like i specifically remember the episode with the SLR camera cake, or the gumball machine, and all the animals etc and just thinking WOW you could never do that unless you were at a place like that. But then I saw it all on here and it just seemed more possible and i started to ease into things and take more risks. I think this site helps break things down into small steps that you can handle better and then the entire task doesnt seems quite as complicated or daunting. By NO MEANS am I a great cake decorator, but seeing such great work on the site gives me more confidence to try things and get better...and i know if I have a problem you all are here to help when i do mess up thumbs_up.gif

thank-u anothercreation icon_smile.gif

but my painted cakes don't even compare to some of the skills on the cakes of some of the people on here!

btw put simply Rylan = dunce.gif about being jealous icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

Also going off what tesso said.....choosing favourites on here is like a kid in a candy store: 'Ooo i like that one and that one, and oh! i want that one! oo and that one!' and then you end up having so many that you are in fear someone is going to come along and say 'ok i think you have had about enough there' lol icon_wink.gif

I know that Jackie is aware that organizing our favorites is at the top of many of our wish lists. I am sure this is a feature she will be adding in the future.

I think you shoudl still post them! Its wonderful to see how much people have grown in their abilities! I still have all my cakes on my facebook page, even the horrid ones from my first Wilton course... (truly THE worst cake I've ever made lol)
Although there are many gorgeous cakes, and INCREDIBLY talented decorators/artists on this site, it it stil important to show us your work!!! icon_smile.gif

I never grow tired of looking at cakes. There is a lot of talent on this site. What really makes my jaw drop is some of the first time cakes. It makes me want to take a look at all their cakes. I check in and out daily so I won't miss too much. I only wish I had those kind of skills.

I think it's great to see that some of these AMAZING cakes are made by beginners, or... stay at home mums, or... people in a totally un-cakey day job, people just like you or me. It kinda gives everyone the chance to say 'If they can do it, maybe I can!'
And, like whit6 said the support of a community like CC gives me so much more confidence to try new things and so much to work towards, I have quite a few people that I 'want to be when I grow up!' icon_biggrin.gif

I agree with everyone else there are great cakes on here and great people with great advise.
I always find I do a cake and think I like that it was quite good then I come on here and it pales into insignificance with some of the wonderful creations but it gives us all something to aspire to and I have learnt to much

I agree! The cakes on this site are absolutely AMAZING! When I was younger I never knew that the flowers on cakes were edible icon_redface.gif . Now that I am a part of the CC community, I am just in awe at what can be done to make an edible masterpiece. There is great talent on this site. I know that my work is just mediorce and that I still have a lot to learn on the decorating end but I've seen my work improve just from being a part of this community. This website is like a KitchenAid Mixer....worth it's weight in gold thumbs_up.gif
