thumbsdown.gif in my opinion.

i found out the hard way of course.. bought it from the site & downloaded it (no cd's)

it is quite limited.. the colors aren't customizable in my experience.. so even something as simple as 'burgundy' won't happen...

of course this was a bit over a year ago.. so maybe they revamped..

i actually made the decision last night to buy an older refurbished tablet pc so I can utilize the ability to draw sketches on the computer.. (check out tiger direct-- mine was around $300) *the screen is literally falling off my laptop now, so i NEED a new computer anyway!*

check out the program ArtRage -- i downloaded a trial and i think when paired with a tablet, it will be great!

also-- the cakes are not at all what is 'the rage' now.. no ability to mock up something custom.. it's mainly florals & such.
i need fondant balls and flames and things that sparkle, lol!

I bought it last summer (downloaded from the website) and knew right away what a piece of garbage it is. It bogged my laptop down and would just freeze it up. I emailed them and the only thing they said was to send them my computer specs and they would see what was happening. I didn't bother. They won't do anything.

The only thing I use it for is to create the cake shape and tiers and save it as a .jpg and then open it in Photoshop and can color and create designs for my cakes. Sometimes I use some of the decorations, but very often.

What a real disappointment icon_sad.gif
