What about it?

someone liked your work.  If you don't want your work copied, I would say don't put up any pictures.  Otherwise, it happens...I copied someone's fondant decorations the other day.

I see the pictures, but I think I missed something. What was the question?

Looks like they were just inspired by your design. They didn't copy it exactly. Relax and be flattered. Someone out there saw your cake and said "I just gotta have it!"

Ditto. You need thicker skin and to learn that imitation is a compliment. Your design isn't something I've never seen before.......you can't take credit for it all on your own.

I agree with the others.. You should feel flattered, someone liked your work/design/cake and wanted to make one like it. Not really anything to get upset about, IMO.

Yep, someone liked your cake enough to try and recreate it - it's a good thing! One of my cakes has been repinned on Pinterest more than a few times and I'd love to think that someone might actually copy it!

I agree with what the others have said. At least this person did not use your photo as her/his own, but made their own cake.

Honestly - big whoop! Do you think you have a patent on the word baby?

Cute cakes, both of them.

WOW - to be brutally honest - your cake had a couple of simple blossoms, a couple of simple buttons and lettering and butterflies that are cut with plunger ejector cutters (that are flooding the marketplace in their 1,000s)  .............. I can't for the life of me understand HOW you could be so precious about a 'design'

 

This is quite simply PLACING cutouts onto a cake.....   and let's face it  -  even the placement is pretty predictable - ie   it falls in line with where MOST people would place them

 

SORRY - but when you start something like this - inevitably you won't hear what you want to

Isn't that from an invitation? I am pretty sure I have seen it done on one.... So the first cake is a copy, too.

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.

LOL - looks like we were typing at the same time.   As always you are able to be much more succinct - you say in 10 words what it takes me a paragraph to! haha

But then I am quickly brought back to earth when I check out the board and the amazing cakes that have been pinned next to mine. And then I am like why?
