What is the risk if not licensed? I am afraid to have a website since I don't have a license to do cakes?

I am trying to do my own web site on the site that you posted and I am having a hard time. Maybe it's just me but I heard that it was really simple to do.

i got a freewebs site. I thought it was pretty easy and I am not very good with the computer. It took a little while for me to figure it out though. But it was definitely easier than some of the other free sites I had tried.

Marthajo: What I do, since I am not a real business, is just not to advertise prices or anything. I figure it is just a place to display my pictures for people who want to see my cakes.

I made a freewebs website and I just wrote that I created this website to share pics of my cakes with family & friends... didn't write anything about selling cakes. I had my email address for contact info but that's it. I don't sell a lot, just made a few here & there for friends of friends, etc... If anyone asks me about my cakes I give them my website but I don't actually claim to be a professional cake decorator. I think the freewebs site is easy to use.

I just went and started making one. I called it "A Friend Who Makes Cakes" icon_lol.gif Then if someone asks me to make a cake and someone wants to know who made it they can tell them.... a friend who makes cakes made it ! LAM - laughing at myself....or add an E and make me lame! icon_lol.gif

Maybe I should go back to bed!

I have done the same thing...just create a website to display my cakes. I do not post ordering details. I have found that people that order do circulate my website to co-workers, friends and family. I use MSN. Go to MSN home page and click "groups". I'd suggest to click "private use", as opposed to "public use". Public use means it will show up in a search engine. Private means people can only look if you (or someone else) sends them the address (link). This might be a nice piece of mind if you are worried about being non-licensed. Also, when creating, be sure to indicate that people can look "without your permission", otherwise, you would have to give access to every person who wants to browse. That would turn off perspective customers. All of these questions are pop-ups when you create the page. I'll see if I can dig up my old instructions for creating the website. good luck

I just made one too. It was pretty simple. I love it that you can have one, without getting in trouble, since nothing about orders or prices is included.I feel like a big time cake decorator now with my one site. icon_cool.gif

I found that www.bravehost.com is very easy to work with. They have a free service and an upgraded service.

I think I'll try one too. I used to have one several years ago when we did gift baskets. Maybe I can stumble through it again.
