Cake Arrangement: Which one do you like?

Using the cakes below. I am not much cop at DTP. I find that the layout that works best for me is a long thing band of colour along the opposite side of the page to the spine, with text tight wrapped to the contours. The above is not very good but I think that it will have to do.


This can be achieved in Microsoft word by placing image in the background and then drawing a line freehand around the image and setting the shape thus draw to "wrap tight"

    Tsu Lin recommends this imageas the side of the page, rather than my strange cake arrangement. I think that aesthetically, she is right. The above does not work. I tried to introduce some perspective but they do not look like they are in the same space.

    At the same time, it is an English conversation book, so cakes bobbing abstractly at the edge of the page, may be kind of conversational - which one do you like?

    must be lots of things you can do with cakes...cakes bobbing abstractly ..all over the place.. sounds terrific to me.. Or -If you want them to look like in the same space with perspective - did you try altering the tones a bit? - fading the one thats supposed to be furthest away as well as changing its size? or perhaps some extra light effects?I think if it was me ..Id like to home in on bigger cut-offs of the cakes espec. the fruity one need to see all of each cake?..or fade one.. or them all enough to write over them..
    but I like the 3 cakes in a row as youve got it - too..lots of impact.

    I like this (except that it is making me wish I had some cakes in the house!) They don't really look like they are in the same space--but do they need to? As it's a textbook, I would think that it would simply be understood that these are representative cake slices, and not necessarily an actual picture of desserts all together somewhere.

    They look delicious. I like the variety. And "which one do you like?" is definitely a good way to start a conversation. (I can't make up my mind!)

    Thank you Tiggywinkle. I agree. While Lin's aesthetics are superior, I am going argue the above have a textbook look.
