Is there a program that you can use to take to consultations to design a cake on the spot If so which one and where do you get one ?
Thanks , Lisa
To be honest, we've found that a pencil and engineer's pad works better than any software we've seen out there.
There is software, but it really is just okay. I would love something to help me because I can't draw worth anything!!!
Darn ....I was really wishing for better news lol Thanks !
I bought Wedding Cake Design Pro. It is limited and I do like it but like I said it is limited. I wish there was a free trial on it but there wasn't.
I used word and made templates for diffent size rounds and squares. Stacked, unstacked... I can print it out several on one page and draw on it. I find that works best for me.
Google has a free program called Sketch-Up, there's also a pro version for a fee, and it does 3-D models. I've created template cakes in rounds and squares, and you can do some simple designs. I think you could even do some really detailed work in the pro version, but I'm still figuring out the free one. Aside from that you could look into other 3-D modeling programs like Blender (also free), and if you just want 2-D there is always GIMP (basically a free version of photoshop).There are other graphics editing and 3-D modeling programs out there, but most of them are quite pricey as they are used by graphic and game designers, etc... Good Luck!
Thanks Joz1e, Ive downloaded the Gimp and oh my ....Ive alot to learn lol ! Thank you!
Heh, yeah it's huge! I had taken a digital photography class years ago and learned photoshop so a few things I knew translated over, but there's still tons that I don't know how do in it. My husband uses it for web design so he's better at certain things, so between the two of use we can usually get things done!
if you print up some size combinations then laminate them you can draw on them with dry erase markers, erase when you need to then once your happy with the design make a paper copy. then erase your laminated board ready for the next time.
