Bakesale Betty public website

Bakesale Betty started out a few years ago selling baked goods at a bay area farmers' market. Their website was designed and built by a friend and served the simple purpose of getting their brand out and letting people know when they would be at the market. This year, in addition to the several markets that they now sell at, they will be opening their own cafe in Oakland and they needed a new web site.

The original look and feel would stay but it needed to be easily updated and new pages detailing the cafe, new farmers' markets, recipes and product details were neccessary. In order to accomplish these goals, I converted the original, graphics-only web site to one where the content is generated from a database with an easy to use web-based front-end.

Because the Bakesale Betty staff will mainly be worried about bringing their cafe to life and doing a lot of baking it was extremely important that they could very quickly update their web site without learning any HTML or dealing with complex rules which might break their public site. I made the forms intelligent in looking at the content being entered. Lists become formatted appropriately for the page they reside on, fractions in recipes automatically have their heights adjusted and all pages end up looking beautiful with no work on the part of the author of the information.
