I also think that you have a very nice looking site.

are you trying to list the definitions? or just trying to decide which cakes go where?

Under Novelty cakes - I would put the 3D and sculpted cakes

Specialty Cakes - with separate headings for00 Anniversaries, promotions, baby shower, religious etc.

Custom Cakes - wedding cakes, bridal showers, grooms cakes - these events really make me think of a custom cake

This is just my thoughts, your website is pretty neat as it is. If I had a website I would include a section with an explanation and examples of like a cake iced in buttercream, fondant, RI etc and also so examples of different decorations, fondant ribbons, flowers, again just a suggestion.

Best wishes.

To be honest, if I were a customer who didn't know much about cakes, those terms would probably confuse me. As it is, I didn't think there was much difference between "custom" and "specialty"... but then I'm easily confused. haha.

How about something like "Novelty" (your shaped cakes), Party or Celebration cakes (your regular celebration cakes), and wedding cakes? Under Party you could have like birthday, showers, anniversary, etc.

Just my two cents... icon_biggrin.gif

You might want to break your birthdays down by
children, teens, adults, etc.
I know this is a lot of work, your holidays could be divided.
Also, showers(ie. bridal, baby) weddings, christenings, congratulations, bon voyage, .......
You get the idea, you also may find that some might fit into more than 1 category.
Hope this helps.
