Saving into favourites isn't an acknowledgement of a great cake- it's a way for me to find it again. I'm not going to clog up my favourites list, which is already clogged up enough, with stuff I won't use.

 

 I do this as well.... 99% of the time, I 'favorite' a cake for future inspiration or a particular style/technique that I would like to recreate later. Also I do admit to liking the 'girly' (and well photographed) cakes. I would most likely think your 'manly' cakes are awesome and be very impressed with the skill/talent it took to create it but I'm not going to reproduce that style of cake, as my style is different.

 

On the other topic of photography (not directed to any cakes discussed here at the moment):  I really think the photography is so very important. I mean, if the photo is blurry or in bad light...why even bother saving the photo- let alone posting it??  I won't ever 'favorite' a cake that was photographed badly- it doesn't need to be professionally taken..but come on - blurry, fuzzy photos taken in the worst light possible? Makes me wonder about whomever took the photo! seriously.

Another thought - I actually don't save cakes in favorites anymore, I pin to Pinterest, which I don't think counts at all towards "most saved".  Honestly, last year if I uploaded a cake I was almost guaranteed to be in the most saved.  Then CC integrated Pinterest and now I haven't made it to most saved in a LONG time - yet I'm on the cover of the magazine this month and my cakes are all over Pinterest.  So people are seeing cakes that are uploaded, I just think the way they are being seen is changing and it's no longer an easily thing for us to track.  I mean, all it takes is one person to pin - it puts your cake in front of million of people!
