I look forward to helping you make your occasion extra special

That line makes it sound to me like you're begging for business- makes you sound desperate. Other then that your site looks great and your cakes are beautiful!

Lorie,

I liked your site and I thought a lot of your wording was very inviting. icon_biggrin.gif

Some recommendations would be to remove the cake flavors in the gallery section, since I'm assuming each design could be made in any of the cake flavors you offer. You could add serving #s for each design, or just leave the title of that design.

Also, can you move your site content up on the page? There seems to be too much space at the top near your logo--it would look better if you could have your central photo centered on the home page when visitors first click there. Same idea with the gallery page--even if you have to scroll down to see it all, it should look a little more balanced when the scrollbar is in top position.


I would add more photos as soon as you can, especially for different types of occasions, so people think of you for graduations and baby showers as well as birthdays. When I visit a site that doesn't have many photos, I suspect there haven't been many cakes.

Just my opinions--I think it's great that people offer so much feedback here, and always interesting to see how different people react differently to various designs (in cakes and websites) icon_smile.gif

Do you think the navagation bars should be on top? I can do it either way...(unfortantly, I hadn't had time to really work on the design of the web site..I am not going like "official" till I complete all my licensing fun) I really appreciate all the input from everyone! You have been terrific!

Now the holidays are over (I was mainly cookie baking mode during the holidays) I hope to make some cakes to take photos of. It is very difficult to start new, isn't it?

No, I like the navigation bar on the left side. However, I would bring the Simply Cakes logo up to the top left corner and have your links immediately underneath.

I'd raise the floral cake photo to be closer to the header--and you might size that photo a bit smaller--and make the Welcome start next to the top of that floral photo--not aligned with the bottom.

I know what you mean about starting over--I have a list of a zillion cakes I want to try, and I'm trying to maintain a web site, and it gets overwhelming. Good luck with licensing fun--I like the positive way you put that! icon_smile.gif

I liked the sidebar just fine. I think your buttons looked good.
