Hi everyone, i would love to know what you think of my banner design, im just getting started and I make everything, from cakes, to cupcakes cakepops, choco dipped cookie pops ect. This banner is for my table at the farmers market and I'll be there for the full season. Not sure if i need a slogan or not since the banner is going to be right over my table? I'm hoping to have it printed today icon_smile.gif Oh she will have cherry red hair (like mine lol) also Thanks Everyone!

Attachments aren't working. You have to put it on a hosting site like Flicker or Photobucket.

I like it! A bit on the sexy side, but I think it's good!

The banner looks great, but IMO there's at least some implication from the graphic that your specialty is adult cakes.

Its really cute but if I were a looking for a birthday cake for one of my kiddos I think that lady might break the deal. Maybe not break the deal but I would probably just skim over and go to the next bakery in town. She isn't too bad I am just saying from the point of view of a mom or just a family person. Maybe a little less cleavage (sp?) would be good. But I love everything else! icon_smile.gif Good luck!!

I agree with Jason that it's not as kid-friendly as it could be. I think she should be a little more covered up and a little less Barbie looking.

Cute. Maybe you can just make her skirt longer?

IMO, I dont think its so much the skirt length, but that fact that she is not wearing anything under the apron icon_smile.gif

Nice, but the woman's dress is too revealing for a family bakery. I think she would look great in a slightly more conservative dress with a frilly apron...it would evoke a sort of 1950's-baked-from-scratch vibe.

funny, the 50's baked from scratch vibe is exactly what im going for LOL also toying with the idea of a slogan maybe?
a few ideas inspired by fellow cc members and also found online

Fun or Formal, Always Fantastic
No Limitation to Our Creations
Creations as Unique As you
Art You Can Eat
