Looks really great, I love the colours. The first thing I think you need is where you are (Maybe I missed it). I would also add a little more information about your product, flavors available, pricing (not necessarily putting prices up), do you deliver, FAQ etc.

Hope this helps, good luck with your venture icon_smile.gif

I would add a little more info about who you are and where you are located , maybey some more detail on the types of items you offer.

Here is a link to my website...

Take a look around the web and find other websites that you like and note what it is about those that appeals to you, then see how you can incorporate some of those elements into your website...

I agree also... I would make it a little more personal. Who you are, where you are located. Then maybe write a little bit about yourself to let the customers know who you are.Then have an area of all of your products- what flavor cakes,fillings,icing, etc. that you offer. If you offer other products-do the same for those as well. Then any turn around time frames, or how long in advance to place the order. You see what I am saying basically try to answser any question that a customer may have on your website. It will keep you from answering a million phone calls for those answers. icon_wink.gif
I think you are on the right track- but try to add some more details. Hope it helps! icon_lol.gif

It's a good start, I'm a big believer in putting key information about your business on the home page, since a surprising number of people don't read anything beyond the home page before contacting you. I would also include a few bigger photos of some of your best work (or a slideshow) instead of several smaller pictures. And don't forget to do a spell check and grammar check on your copy.

You should also look into getting your own domain name.

Here's the web site for our business for comparison purposes:
