There are so many beautiful cakes here on CC. Is it okay to reproduce the cakes pictured here?
I personally find it flattering if someone copies one of my cakes. If I "borrow" someone else's cake idea, I try to give them credit when I post my cake pic.
Hope that helps!
Absolutely! This is also a learning site, as well as a show place for new ideas and creations. I get a lot of ideas here! I love this site, if you need instructions for a specific project they will be happy to help. Just send a pm
Here's what I do
I pm the person that did the cake I want to reproduce and tell them that a bride picked out her cake and I would like to know if it's alright if I copy it. I let the person know I will give them credit. Here's an example
Hope this helps
I said this recently but I'll repeat myself...
If someone doesn't want their cake or cake ideas copied they should not post it on the internet for all to see. I do think it is nice to give credit, especially if you complete copy a cake, but it isn't the end of the world to me if people don't.
Thanks for the replies. I have seen so many wonderful cakes and since I am not the creative type I need to get ideas from somewhere besides my own head. LOL
For me it's not a big deal that someone copied a design....but I DO appreciate it if the person gives credit to the original designer.
I've seen a bunch of cakes on here that are copies of my designs or other people's that I recognize and no credit is given...but whatever...nothing to lose sleep over.
