Man, if I lived on that side of the country, I'd definitely want to try one of your cakes. The website is extraordinarily professional--well done!

LOVED the Winter Wonderland cake; those berries are exquisite.

Curious, what is "old noveltyed chocolate"?

That is a beautiful website! The only problem I had was figuring out that I just had to click on the enlarged image to minimize it again. I thought the site was stuck until I discovered I just had to click it again.

I absolutely adore your work. The first wedding cake (asian inspired) took my breath away.

Great job! My web site is on paper and I meet with my husband's IT person tonight to get me started. You are so right about the time, but you must be proud. I see where you have plenty of room to expand your pictures while it looks great with just a few. You will make a very good first impression with that site.

Its a very nice site with some very nice cakes.

I do have one concern which is your cake toppers section. There are a lot of trademarked characters which are fine if you obtained a license to produce them or they made for personal use, but technically you really can't sell them without getting a license.

I love your website. Very classy! I also checked out your etsy page. You do beautiful work. One question though, on your etsy page, it says that your cake toppers are made from polymer clay and detailed with acrylic paint. So that is safe to put on a cake? Your figurines are absolutely darling icon_smile.gif

Congratulations TheSwettestThingCS!

Your website is beautiful, classy and elegant, and I know Flash is not easy. I went all the way to advanced classes once (I'm a designer).

Other than I expected arrows to keep on clicking through the photos, I don't see anything else you would need to do. It only took me a second to figure out that you were using the method of clicking on and off, though, so no biggie. Sometimes I do prefer that method so that I don't have to watch 200 photos in a specific order.

Do keep in mind, though, that Flash sites are not being read on the iPad and the iPhone, and with so many people buying these devices and checking things on the road, the future doesn't look too bright for Flash.

Make sure that you have an alternate way for those people to get through that includes at the very least your name, address and phone number, just in case people are trying to get to it while on the road. I read in the Culinary Institute of America newsletter that they're especially advising this to restaurants. Maybe that's where your etsy page will come in play.

You do beautiful work!
