You can click on "English" in the righthand corner to translate it.

I think it's interesting that they're offering instructions on how to commit copyright violations with all of those character cakes, too ! Very nice! I hope they do email me, I'll write to ask them how they got licenses to sell all of that stuff.

isnt it just like buying a cake decorating book? use it for ideas, techniques and tips.

Maybe the step by step instructions will help if your a bit lost for how to complete a step or get the finish your after - especially for beginners.

They are the cakes that I find on the Picasa website in the tortas books. Such as the casper cake here is the link to the one in a tortas book on the picasa website.

If you think about it, there are plenty of people who sell instructions, DVDs, etc. for a lot of things, and people worship them for it. icon_wink.gif Sell away, people, sell away!

Hey, everybody's doing what they gotta do to get by in the world. As long as people perceive value in what they're selling, it's an honest business. At least they're not sending emails that say "I WILL LIKE YOU TO MAKE FOR ME A STRAWBERRY CAKE AND THE INSCRIPTION SHALL READ HAPPY MARRIAGE LIFE" icon_wink.gif

And you shall deliver it in the truck that my colleague will deliver to you with the certified check for $50,000,000 US dollars that my deceased client left in the bank account in Nigeria and I am administering and will share with you when you send me all of your personal information. Also, you have won the Microsoft lottery.

I'm sorry, I don't see anything wrong with it either. I offer classes on how to do some of my cake designs and people pay for the classes, just like my sugar flower classes, I just don't do anything copyrighted. I do share a lot of info and help anytime I can on here. Edna and Aine2 also have tutorials they sell. I also have to pay for demos on this stuff at ICES. Wilton's yearbook does the same thing, instructions for pay. This is just an e-book.

Is it just the copyright stuff you can't believe, in that case...I totally agree!

icon_lol.gif That is too funny! I'm not in the cake business, but I get the same ones in my line of work. I'm always wondering who actually does this? Someone must, or they wouldn't keep doing it. The best thing about it is that they are oh-so-smart with this brilliant scheme, but they just haven't figured out that the broken english (happy marriage life bwahahahaha) is the first thing that tips everyone off. Maybe they should use some of their stolen money to get some english lessons icon_biggrin.gif
