Here is a website I am designing for a cake maker that I know. Now I am not the best “designer” so would love some constructive feedback. If anyone would be so kind as to leave a comment, it’d be greatly appreciated.
I wouldn’t italicized the paragraphs in the “The Jewels Cakery” and “Meet the Creator” sections. Italics usually are meant to be used when you want to emphasize some words. If you are italicizing those paragraphs to achieve a desired look, I would recommend you to choose a serif or cursive typeface, there is a big variety in google web fonts that you can use: http://www.google.com/fonts
I believe you need more contrast between your background and text color. Probably you can use a darker color for your text, and/or a lighter color for your background. This is a tool I use sometimes to measure contrast: http://snook.ca/technical/colour_contrast/colour.html
