Yeah, that is shady! I did a bridal last year and had my DH put the pictures on my digital frames, and when he did, he put on about 6 or so that was the inspiration cake, and I was mortified! I felt like I had to stand by the frame all day, and say, "That is not my cake, but the inspiration for one I did, so sorry!!" For her to thank them is ridiculous! And there should be maybe one small folder of inspiration pictures, clearly labeled. and if someone says wow, great cake! You reply and say, yes it is, I love it, but it is not mine!

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

If this person does not have a provincially inspected kitchen, then they should not be accepting orders for sale.

 

Assuming you have a proper license, you can quote the provincial regulation on your page and announce that you ARE licensed and inspected.

 

If this person copies your license statement, you report them to the provincial board of health.  THAT will teach them a lesson about this childish  stupidity.

J'ai regardé les photos FB et photos de vos gâteaux. Les vôtres sont impeccables. Vous n'avez rien à craindre.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Ugh, inspiration albums are such BS! Your clients can look up their own ideas or ask you in an email. It's just shady to do that. Customers assume they are yours, cause they just don't read.

Ewwwww! And who wants to be scrolling thru those nice photos to be whacked in the face with a giant "insert crude word for male genitalia here". icon_confused.gif

I also noticed the 'thanks' and 'you're so kind' under the inspiration photos, or another example where they advertise 'valentine's cake special coming soon' with photos of someone else's cake. Like I said, when people realize the baker cannot replicate the quality of the cakes they are using to advertise themselves, things will come swiftly crashing down.

Merci Shanter, mais comme je l'ai dit, ce n'est pas une crainte mais une "écoeurantite" aigue de toujours voir cette personne faire une réplique de nos stratégies marketing (le terme est fort mais c'est le seul que j'ai) 2 jours après nous... ça finit par user. Mais bon, la meilleure chose reste encore de ne plus aller voir... et j'ai réussi aujourd'hui!! Je ne suis pas allée depuis que j'ai écrit ici! C'est un début...

 

for english speakers...

 

Thanks Shanter. As I said, I'm not affraid about for ma product, but I'm tired to see this person always take our "marketing strategies" 2 days after me. So, the better thing to do is ignore et don't ever look at her page... and I succeeded today since I have wrote here this morning! It's a first step!

Your work is very well done!!  And I agree that between your level and her level, there is a lot of distance. I can imagine that it is very annoying to have someone copy your marketing strategy, no matter how different the levels of skills may be, but I don't think it's illegal or not allowable on FB either. Lots of people  do this who lack imagination, creativity or just skills to do it on their own.

 

I would just block her page so she can't see yours, I think it works this way?

cakefat,

 

there's no way to block definitly someone to see a FB page. It's so easy to have an account : a email address and a password and you can be who you want and see what you want that is public...
