When you watermark a picture, it bears your name or logo on the picture so people know who made it and where it originated from. In the era of Pinterest, facebook, twitter etc  where there are a thousand cakes out there by a thousand different cake designers, people know where to come if they want to see more of your work or purchase your cake. There's some free software out there to watermark your pictures - I've used the free picture editor at picmonkey.com. Just upload your picture by clicking Edit a Photo and on the left hand side choose the Text button and from there you can select a number of different writing styles (not sure about adding your logo). The size of the text can be adjusted and you can also fade it as not to take away from your masterpiece. Hope this helps :)

P.S - when photographing your cakes, you can use a neutral background like an ironed white sheet or some wrapping paper. It's best to use lots of natural light, so place your cake next to a nice big window and turn the flash off on your camera. The flash can make things too bright and you'll loose the details. Somtimes I've taken about 50 pictures + and only 1 has been any good (my husband thinks I'm mental having so many cake pictures!) Best of luck with your new business too :)
