Cakedecor, Thank You for sharing the site. The simplicity of the cakes make them beautiful.

I thought to myself
"Hey i've seen MOST of those cakes before"
and lo and behold, half of them are photos straight out of this website!!!

Im a big fan of May Clee-Cadman's work. I just LOVE her cakes. When i saw one on the other website, i thought, "oh they've done a great job on it" , but then there was more and more, and i realised they were her actual cakes.

They belong to May Clee-Cadman.
This lady has had her cakes "borrowed" on more than one occasion.

Thanks for clearing that up for me, Nati. I did not read through the entire website, did you notice if the "copycat" gave any acknowledgement to the owner of the designs for inspiring her work?

Theresa
These are actual pictures straight out of May's website, not copied cakes, but copied photos.

The website doesnt have much information at all actually. The galleries dont claim to be cakes made by them either though, it just says "Galleries" and that's it.

jenncowin Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 11:12pm

They are beautiful cakes though!

jen1977 Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 11:47pm

WOW! That second website is amazing! I could only dream of making a cake like most of those!

tripletmom Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 11:57pm

There are a lot of cakes from Jacques Pastries as well:

franjmc Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 11:57pm

Oooh, that makes me sooooooo mad! I hate it when people steal other people's cake photos, it's happened to me before and it always get my blood boiling!

playingwithsugar Posted 25 Jan 2007 , 11:59pm

Thank you, Fran. I was trying to think up the right words to use, which would not stir up a hornet's nest. I can recall a few months ago, several members practically grabbed their torches and pitchforks against that lady who copied some member photos from CC and used them on her site, but so far, you are the only one complaining. I commend your courage.

oolala Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 12:10am

I love both websites... icon_smile.gif
The cakes are very ELEGANT, pleasant looking, beautiful, sophisticated and very well presented. Very professionally made.. IMHO...They do not look disturbing, weird or sickening..
Thank you very much for sharing such pretty websites.. thumbs_up.gifso whose photos are these then ? Should we call CSI or the FBI ?? I still think these cakes are worth looking. They are not bloody and gory looking..

FatAndHappy Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 12:11am

What is with people? They must not do too much business if they have to steal photos! Well who ever originally did these did a lovely job - very elegant!

Thanks for sharing!!!

ShirleyW Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 12:35am

Exactly. I had just typed in "Does anyone else think these look very much like Jacques Pastries designs" when I noticed that someone else had posted the same thought.

NikkiDoc Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 12:53am

They are all beautiful. I hope I can become half as good as she is!

CakesUnleashed Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 1:00am

Excellent website! Thanks for sharing it with us! Very inspiring!

Edited Addition: After reading all the way through the forum notes, it would be a total bummer if someone is using someone else's cakes on their website. That happened awhile ago and it wasn't pretty.

Course, my cakes never end up on anyone's website. Hmmm..... icon_confused.gif LOL!!!!

dtmc Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 1:21am

Do you think JacquesPastries and MaiseFantaise should be told about this other website using their photos?

I would be LIVID if I found out that someone was using my photos.

biviana Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 1:42am

The Gallery doesn't claim them, but the "Who are we" (quienes somos?) does say " We are the ones that elaborate, carefully, the wedding cakes, and made them delicius..."
I guess they are trying to get some credit of those cakes trying to be carefull. icon_confused.gif

superstar Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 1:43am

How sad! This seems to be happening more & more. They are beautiful cakes. Thanks for sharing the web sites. What happens if a customer asks the pirate to make a cake exactly like the picture? Do you all think they are capable or what?

Cakechick123 Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 11:45am

I recognised some cakes from this website too

Cakes by Fraziska

seems this person collected pics from all over!!!!!


BTW, the other websites are AMAZING!

paolacaracas Posted 26 Jan 2007 , 12:01pm

I wonder, if they have the talent to perfectly copy this cakes, why not make their own ones?, how can you offert something you won't be able to do EXACT?
I have had pictures of mine -the printed tipe- stollen from in a wedding show. I was so mad they did in my nose! icon_mad.gif

I dont think they can copy these cakes, if they can, why steal photos from other websites? icon_confused.gif
Personally I think the people ordering cakes from them are in for a huge surpize!!!!
