Wouldn't it be nice.

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello decorators, just got to thinking today, wouldn't it be nice if there was (or maybe there already is) some computer software out there that we could use to design a cake right on our computer at home just to see what it would look like. Maybe insert a square and then add roses and a boarder with just a click of the mouse. It would also be handy to print out to give to a potential customer. Just a thought, but it sure would be nice. Hope everyone has had a great day.

Good idea! Kind of like those programs that let you experiment with hairstyles before taking the plunge! icon_smile.gif

So funny!!! I was talking to DH about that same thing!!
Somewhere there is an idea for those computer whiz people to cash in on!! They make them for other companies to design whatever with, why not cakes??? icon_smile.gif

I made a cake last week that had a baseball diamond on it and player's names. I used the paint shop program on my computer to see the general layout. I'm still new at cake decorating, and sometimes I have a hard time seeing what I want in my mind. So it helped to see the colors and the layout. But yes, a cake designing program would be wonderful! icon_lol.gif

That would even be a good idea for the public, then they could design the cakes they want and show them to the decorator. It may help tame some of the bridezillas out there.

come to think of it.... if you had a website where people order cakes from you, it would be cool for them to choose their options (i.e. 1/4 sheet, basic border) and see what it looks like as they click the different options. Kind of like a "build-a-cake" option. That way they'd have an idea of what they're getting before they order it.

I thought the very same thing two years ago when I made my first wedding cake. It certainly would have been nice!

I'm such a dinosaur! I'm forever reaching for a sheet of paper to sketch out a cake design that pops into my head.

I put this idea to my sons, one is a computer programmer who has designed some games, the other is a commercial artist, I thought they would be a great combination! Computer son's response was "It sounds so easy, but it isn't!" Haven't heard from artist son, so I have to assume that he didn't think too much of the idea. Maybe I can keep working on them, I think they could do a great job.

I did do a pretty extensive search online, the only software I could find was for the edible images, so it looks like the field is wide open. Janice
