"Featured on Cake Central" badge

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know what the rules are for using the "I was featured on cake central" badge and where do you get the link so you can use it? One of my cakes was featured in the Top Lace Inspired Cakes article and I wasn't sure if that qualified...icon_smile.gif

No rules (that I'm aware of) -- once your profile has been featured, you're free to use the badge as you like (it's suggested to proudly display on your website), and you receive the code in an e-mail.  You can ask Jackie if you qualify, but I believe they've only awarded them once (2011) and haven't updated acknowledgements since.

I thought the badge was only if you were featured in their magazine, not the blog?

No, I'd post a link to the "top 25" announcement, but currently there's an error message.

I tried to message Jackie a while ago about it, but I never heard anything back from her. Thanks for the info guys!

 I know there are a couple of badges.  One for being featured in the magazine and the other being featured on Cake Central (example for participating in the Luck's edible images contest).

 

You are free to use them on your websites, Facebook, portfolio etc. and encouraged to do so.

Do you know where you find the badges HTML to copy to your site? Thanks!

They usually email you the link if you've been featured.  Try emailing the associate editor that picked you or produced the segment you were featured in, if it wasn't Jackie.  You'll probably hear something back faster that way.

When you are notified that your cake (treat) is either featured on the site or in the magazine they automatically send it to you. 

 

I don't believe the Top (category) cakes or Friday faves qualifies for the "feature" badge.

Ok, I didn't even know it was in the article until I saw someone post a link on Pinterest, and my cake was there, in the article. That helped though, thank you!

That's what I thought too! :-D

I was lucky enough to have one of my cakes in the Friday Faves, and was sent an email with the url for the badge.  Below is from the email I received.

Were you featured recently? One of my cakes was a Friday Faves about a month ago, but I never got an email about it. Seems there's a lot of badge confusion! LOL! Congrats btw!
