Since this subject has been opened up... I am going to give my 2 cents... There not worth a hill of beans but I'm going to give them anyway.
I have noticed a lot of "you should do this or you should do that" posted on the pics that are being posted. When I post a pic I hate it when someone tells me how I should have done my cake. I am posting my cakes because I am proud of them & want to share them. Not because I want to be judged. I would rather you NOT make a comment then post something that might make me discouraged or hurt my feelings. None of this has happened to me. It has been brought up by several people I'm friends with on here & I'm speaking for them & me!
If someone makes a post in one of the forums about there cake or asks questions on what they could have done better then that gives us the chance to turn them in the right direction. If they don't ask I don't think anyone has the right to tell them there cake was bad or this & that is wrong with it.
Another thing... While I'm on a soap box... I give advice but I do not give advice unless I have done the technique the post is about. I have read a lot of posts where people are giving advice on things that they have just read about on cake central. Just by reading a post does not intitle you to give advice.
I think posts should stay in the forums & galleries should only be positive & do away with the stars. If there hurting people that would be a good idea.
I know I've stepped on some peoples toes. I'm am sorry. Hopefully I don't get kicked off here! Jackie don't kick me off!!
I love cake central!!
