This can't be real. They let you photoshop your stuff first?  

post #1 of 118

I just saw about this site and their are alot of real talented people here. But I came across a picture that is clearly not real. How come they let them post pictures that are doctored? Isn't there a way to check? Look;

I saw lots of kool cookies but they were real cookies made with frosting or royal frosting and this looks like someone copied and pasted a picture, like a painting or clipart and put it on their cooky. How is that allowed? But there were lots of other really nice actual cookies in the pic section. Some of you'all are so talented!!

They are REAL cookies!!!!! She's an artist and does each one individually. Do a search for posts by her and you can find the thread where we discussed how much to charge for them.

I have to say they are real cookies. The first one is her avatar and I remember the post about the cookies.

These look like real cookies to me. The description on the Van Gogh flowers says they are hand painted and they look hand painted. We have some incredibly talented people here.

There a lot very talented cake artists on this site. I know that some of members have taken Donna Dewberry's classes just so they can paint on cakes. But Cake Diva is definitly an artist and a good one too.

What makes you think these are doctored photos?

I whole heartedly believe these cookies are real and original pieces of work by this decorator!!!!

You're right about one thing...there are some REALLY talented people on this site- AND SHE IS ONE OF THEM!!!! There are also alot of us who look out for one another and don't appreciate any of our work being questioned- especially in a forum!!!

Seriously...why couldn't you have sent the decorator a PM or something instead of trying to make a public display if you didn't think they were real??????

Actually, yes, they are quite real. CakeDiva73 is a very, very talented artist and cookie decorator. Her work is absolutely amazing.

Those are real cookies. She's talked about how they were done before and I've done enough with fondant and cookies too to know that it would be possible (if I had her artistic talent icon_biggrin.gif which I don't).

You can paint on fondant using food colorings thinned down with vodka. You can also mix food coloring and white frosting coloring (the messy wilton one) to get opaque colors.

You can put fondant onto a cookie really easily. Just roll the fondant and cut it with the same cookie cutter you used for the cookie, and put it on top of the cookie when it's warm from the oven, and the heat of the cookie will melt the fondant just enough to stick it on.

I've seen some lovely cakes here which were achieved by painting on fondant...some done to look like Italian pottery and also some done to look like Mexican tiles.

Not to be mean to a brand-newbie such as you are, but as a newbie I would think you would be more cautious before accusing someone of falsifying their photos.

Cakediva is definitely an artist and produces beautiful, real, cakes and cookies.

Her cookies are absolutely beautiful. She is an artist that takes her time to create. They are wonderful to look at. For anyone taking that much care, they are sure to be delicious. icon_biggrin.gif

I look forward to the day when I can proudly display such a high level of skill.

i dont think you are mean..or mean, mean...if someone was cutting and pasting pictures into their submissions i would be annoyed by it too..but what would anyone have to gain from that?

besides that, neither of those pictures look computer-ly altered to me..they look (and obviously are) real, real real. and i most likely wasnt even a member of cc, when they were originally posted, or discussed- meaning its a totally unbiased & uniformed opinion- but either way, they look real-and appparently are, which brings me to;
wow!
CakeDiva73
you are definitely very talented! awesome work!!

well it says the person is a person here but they don't look like anything you could eat. The blue one is all swirly but the flower one looks printed. I saw another one one here with an eye on it,maybe olympics or something and that one was cool but looked painted. (not by the same person- I will find it.)

ok, so she says she actually did them LOL. I have worked in a bakery for years and we do some cookies, mostly cakes that are sheet cakes but any kind of cookie we have done there is no way I can see of a non-printed way to make it look like that.

We just got one of those printers that print on paper you can eat and I think thats what she did was print it and stick it on there or something. Those printers are real fancy, we even charge extra for them! So I'm, not a total hick LOL.

Cake Diva is one of the most talented 'fine artists' that we have on this site!

I realize that you are new to this site but before you begin to make accusations in a thread where it is a public record you could PM the poster of the picture or report the photo to the moderators.
