Help! Book Cover Polling

You guys, I’m so excited because, look below .  .  . those are the two options for my book cover. Yes, it’s finally here, the book is so close to being done. I just need to finalize the cover. Which one do you love: left or right? Which one makes you want to turn the pages? Or maybe it’s neither. Either way I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Book Cover Options

EEEEP! I can’t believe we are finally so close to having the book hit the printers. As you know, this has been a two year labor of love. OMG – I feel like life can get back to being being semi-normal. It’s been an all-consuming passion that has taken up almost every minute of my time.

I’m so pumped to share all these recipes with you. Stay tuned, because I’ll have pre-order information coming shortly. But for now, I need  you to weigh in and tell me which one you like? I can’t decide and I need to let the book designer know. I’m not going to share my thoughts until after I get some consensus, so I really need your input to see which one resonates with you and why!

    They are both beautiful but I would say the naked cake would attract my eye more. Congratulations! Can’t wait to pick up a copy :)

    I like the first one. It has a little bop of colour which attracts the eye better than the all brown look of the second one, if I had to choose.

    Naked cake!! I first found your site via some pics of your chocolate mocha cupcakes. Your site seems so elegant and I love the name!! The naked cake looks more delicte and fancier than the bundt.

    Both are stunning and I love them both for different reasons. The font and style for the 75 recipes to the right on the bundt cover is gorgeous. I love the background for the naked cake. I absolutely adore the right, the bundt cake, some drama to it. It’s your style. Whatever you chose, it will be wonderful. Can’t wait to get your book.

    The Naked Cake – very eye catching. There are too many cookbooks with chocolate cakes on the cover – your Nake Cake is delicate and different – it makes me want to bake and isn’t that what you want?

    The bundt is better. The gloss of the sauce brings your eye in and draws it down the page. I also like the design around the “75 twists…” (so if you end up going with the other cover page I would suggest adding this in to that one). The thing about the bundt that I don’t like is the placement of your name – the name placement on the blackberry cake cover is better.

    Oh, how exciting!!! I love the bundt cover, there are too many covers with cakes and the bundt looks so luscious. I like the design of the fonts on this one better too

    Oh my, they’re both GORGEOUS Naomi! I can’t wait for the book to come out so I can add it to my collection. Congrats on all your hard work! The naked cake is beautiful, but I think the chocolate cake pops. I love the rich chocolate color of the cake.

    The bundt cake has my vote. Chocolate glistening on the cake caught my eye. Also I like the font for the 75 ways and I like it on the right better.

    I like them both, but if it were me, I’d go with the first one…the naked cake…I like the pastels on that one! 😉 Good luck with whichever one you choose & the book as a whole!

    Love love! I think the pink is gorgeous but the chocolate will pop off the shelf more. Better contrast.

    The one on the right looks like chocolate which is always an easy sell. It also looks easier to bake so I would think the recipes inside would be more doable. I also like the 75 Twists on the right one too. If you could put some color on the right one it would be perfect. Like other commenters I like the colors on the left.

    While I want to make the bundt cake, my eye immediately went to the first book cover. The color feels fresh and inviting. It follows the trend of moving away from all neutral to adding at least a bit of color. Also, the circle/font around the “75 Twists…” is great. Have you tried it on the other cover?

    I love the bundt cover but I agree that your name placement needs to be fixed in it. Love the font style on the 75 sweets blurb and if you go with the naked cake, you might consider using the 75 sweets font from the bundt cover.
    cover.

    Definitely the naked cake. It looks rustic, organic, tasty and enticing! It’s pretty in pink, that I would totally grab first in a line up.

    Congrats!!!
    I like them both, but I think the one on the right is more appealing to the eye. Still, you cannot go wrong with either of them.
    Wishing you continued success.
    Cheers!

    I like the first one best! The orchid and gilded blackberries are easy elegance and in my opinion, are very you. The other cake looks delicious, just not the cover cake.

    I LOVE the naked cake…the colors you’ve chosen are so appealing. The cake itself is interesting and different-I would describe it as shabby-chic. I love chocolate cake and that one looks delicious, but looking at both covers, I already want to make the cake on the first cover. It is very pleasing :-)

    I love the composition of the Naked Cake‼️ I asked several of my friends and hands down every one voted for it.

    The chocolate bundt cake for sure! I love bundt cakes so the bundt cake would catch my eye alot faster! Then you have all that yummy chocolate sauce dripping down a chocolate Kugelhopf bundt cake! Plus having some chocolate every day is actually good for you! Win! Win!

    The chocolate bundt all the way. The contrast is so visually appealing and it looks luxe and dramatic which fits the name “bakers royale” more.

    The naked cake! It looks so fresh and appealing. Of the two, that’s the cake that I would want to make, look at, and eat :)

    I like the second one! The color palette on the naked cake is appealing, but the bundt cake speaks more to baked goods and good – the first says “home decor”

    While I love, love chocolate, for the cover I much prefer the one on the left. Like the burst of berry color in the cake and also the font of the 75…..is easier to read,

    It’s really so hard to choose! Both are gorgeous. But, I lean a little bit to the left however, i love the stamp on the right!

    I like the cover on the left better. It shows height with cake elevated on the cake stand. It shows texture with the icing on the cake. It’s more aesthetically pleasing in an artistic way to the eye to me.

    I’m torn now after reading some of the comments! I was going to say I love the left with the ’75 recipes’ font from the right, but now I’m on board with the right bundt looking more approachable for the home baker. So I guess it depends on who you are targeting most…those who want to be inspired and are confident in their baking skills…or those who want recipes that look like something they can make themselves without too much skill. 😀 Good luck!

    I prefer the “75 twists” font in the bundt cake photo. But I think the Naked Cake photo is a more interesting cover. When I see the bundt cake cover, I think “do I really need another bundt cake recipe? How is it different from the others I have already?”, but the other cover makes me more curious about what is inside the book. Just my two cents; both covers are beautiful!

    I love the naked cake cover. The colors are beautiful and inviting, and it just looks fun. I LOVE chocolate and the bundt cake is drool-worthy, but it doesn’t stand out or look unique. I know some people think the bundt cake is more approachable, but there’s little challenge. I can buy a boxed cake, bake it in a bundt pan, drizzle store-bought caramel sauce it, and viola. On the other hand, the naked cake is different, but not so over-the-top that I’d be afraid to attempt it. However, I like the font and the look of the “75 Tasty…” subtitle from the chocolate cover.
