I am trying a few variations in sizes for my photos and wondering what people like best. Do you like the progressive display throughout the instructions, showing you the different stages as you make your cake like I have done for the Easy Banana Cake .....or do you prefer just a photo of the cake, baked and ready to eat? I did feel this cake lent itself to the series of photos because it is a good recipe for beginner cooks or children to use.
I have also been wondering how best to overcome the latest Google practice with our images where they now open full size on THEIR page, rather than them sending visitors to have a look on our websites. So while it does look a little ugly I will be including website details and an invitation to go to my site and have a look. I will also be reminding people that my images are covered by copyright. If I am happy to have them pinned I will include a PinIt button. Otherwise, you should only ever see them on my website.
I am also experimenting a bit with image sizes. So I will have a few variations until I develop a format I feel is right. If you have any comments do let me know.
Brought up baking from a young age I love to make delicious cakes to share with family and friends. Much like my mother, I can be one of those cooks who measure by "eye" rather than with a measure, and invariably add in or take out ingredients depending on what is in my cupboard. However, I do also appreciate the need to follow a recipe exactly for best results, as the "pour it in" method is really for those who have done a lot of baking over many years. I use this method for new recipes. So come share my recipes and learn some baking skills if you are not confident.
