This can't be real. They let you photoshop your stuff first? - Page 2

what is a PM? and I am sorry because i wasn't trying to sound mean, i was more wondering if they let you tinker with pictures on the computer before you post. Is that the normal thing to do or allowed?

So I didn't mean to attack this person and I am all over the place on forums but most of them just say the stuff and don't get their feathers so ruffled LOL. Shoot, I thought I was bein' right polite but I guess not.

and seriously, what can I pm? Or where do I find it. THX

If you look in the picture with the flowers, you can see that part of the brown wasn't dry yet when she took the picture. It takes a while for food coloring to dry on fondant.

Lots of people here use the edible image printers for various things. It does give things a neat look...but that's not how that cookie was done.

Sometimes it's kind of humbling to see the kind of talent that some people here have...but just because you can't imagine creating something like that doesn't mean that it's not possible.

Just think of how you would feel if you posted pictures of some of your work (because I notice that you haven't yet ) and someone started a post basically calling you a liar...it wouldn't feel very good.

I don't think anyone here "tinkers with their photos". They are all original works of art., good or bad. Maybe the bakery you worked in didn't hand paint cookies but some people do. It's very common to "paint" on fondant. Did your bakery cover cookies in fondant?

Okay, instead of just berating you, I'm going to help you here because I think the way you went about this was indelicate to say the least. I hope Cake Diva takes your accusations as a compliment reflective of how amazing and unbelievable her cookies are and not as an insult. I'm sure by the time your words have been slammed over and over in this thread, you'll think next time before you post.

To PM (private message) someone, you just click on their name under their photo in a gallery...OR you click on the little button that says PM under every post they make in the forums.

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.



just because you can't, doesn't mean someone else can't

I can't do sculptures but Michelangelo did "David"
I can't do portraits but Da Vinchi did "The Mona Lisa"
I can't design buildings but wow -- look at the stuff Frank Lloyd Wright did
I can't write novels but J.K. Rowling sure gave us a set didn't she.

Those ARE real -- if you look closely you can see the brush strokes, the oopsies.

and YES, as others have said, painting on fondant is a REAL thing you can do. Tho' having tried it once -- I'll leave that for pros like CakeDiva to do

and remember -- no commercial bakery could ever take the time nor charge enough to create those kind of one-of-a-kind, custom made, hand-crafted cookies.


and if you think that's outrageous....

well look at this one --

painting with BUTTERCREAM!!!!

wow, this thread has me in shock! I am completly speachless!!!

CakeDiva, if you are reading this, I love your Stary Night (when I was in design school, I did a replica of The Church at Auvers. I just LOVE immating Van Goghs strokes and you did it just perfectly!)

I don't get this thread at all...it is VERY obvously a painted cookie!!! And very well done too! The orignal poster of this thread should, well, quite frankly go back to the hole from where she crawled in from!

Sigh.

working in the type of bakery that OP says she does = off the rack clothes from WalMart, et. al.

what CakeDiva and so many others on CC do, just like Colette Peters, Margaret Braun, Mike Carey, Ron Ben-Israel, Scott Wollery, etc. = HIGH couture -- Hermes, Louis Vitton, etc.

too totally different leagues

Everyone PLEASE go easy on the OP (original poster)...she just joined today. She is new and probably hasn't seen the level of cake decorating that is displayed here. Let's look at it as an honor that she thought it was an edible image and not hand painted. She is probably not familiar with hand painted cookies. Give her some more time to browse and PLEASE, no slamming, PRETTY PLEASE?

I know you are all quick to tell me what I did wrong and how I am so rude but what the heck is a pm? And why was that better than asking the question in an open forum?

I work at a commercial bakery, a VERY busy one! So I don't have pictures of my cakes because I sell 'em. But if my own talent is being questioned then I will hunt up a picture, and you can dog gone guarantee it will be a picture of a REAL cake or cookie that I made! with no printable paper or any of that nonsense.

I been looking around more and more and with all these business names across the pictures, was it that big of a jump to wonder if when they were putting those on they decided to add a little bit here and take a little bit off?

And I am sorry but neither of those two cookies looked like food or a cookie or anything that you would want to be puttin' in your mouth! And I'm no 'newbie' as you called me. I've been decorating for near ten years in the busiest bakery in town and can pipe a rose faster than you can blink. (I know that's a hard thing to master and I sure have and am proud of it!)

And I'm not new to the world of computers either. Just didn't realize this forum was so strict so I guess I'll just keep any kind of realistic or negative comment to myself. And I'll expect the same in return LOL.

Re: PM

look at the bottom of any post.

There's a PM button.

it's so you can send a Private Message to the person who made the post.

just like I'm going to do to you now.

and look on the left in dark dusty rose (i refuse to say PINK) box. See Private Message -- a number will show up there when I do! Click on Private Message and it will take you to your IN Box.

then click on the listed message to see what I have to say.

Anyone that has taken a wilton course can pipe a rose. Maybe you coud show us your gumpaste flowers or carved, 3D cakes. The business names have been added to the cake photos so the photos can't be taken and used on someone's elses website.

This reminds me of another thread regarding photo comments that were just down right rude. That person also had just joined. I hope this is not someone just trying to stir up trouble..........
