  • Pretty rustic? I like the 'homemade' look with a touch of prettiness to it. I don't get real fancy, but I try to add a little something to make it look nice.

  • I would love to make things like the first picture, but they tend to look more like the second one.

  • I like the homemade, "rustic" look. I don't want my food to be too pretty; it just needs to look appetizing.

  • I like doing both.
    Most of the time it is rustic looking, I suppose but at least once a week, I want to play with my food and make it pretty.

  • I prefer to have someone else make anything! LOL! I hate to cook, bake whatever!

  • Rustic for sure

    Answer by luvmygrandgirl at 9:29 PM on Oct. 30, 2013

  • I do both - it depends on what I'm making. I like to pretty up my cakes, but the other things I guess you could say I do in a "rustic" way

  • I LOVE pretty! Presentation is important to me as well as the taste of course.

  • I can make tasty food, but fancy presentation isn't my thing.
