BakeSpace is a site and network dedicated to food and the people who love to celebrate it. Users can discover new recipes and share their favorites with the BakeSpace community. Recipes can also be added to the user’s virtual recipe box or reviewed by the user. The website includes a huge data base of recipes, but is also focused on the social elements of food. Users are encouraged to converse and interact. BakeSpace promotes learning as well as tasting. Users with experience and expertise in a specific culinary area can mentor others who are interested in learning more. BakeSpace provides users with a conversations area, which works much like a forum. The application is designed for those who love to cook and those who want to learn.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Bakespace.com was the result of the efforts of media producer Babette Pepaj who is also an enthusiastic baker. The sole concept behind the site is to make the search process a fun activity for the users. It was launched in August 2006 and is among the best websites that are frequently visited by the users. Bakespace.com has been the ‘Webby Award Official Honoree’ for two consecutive years i.e., for the year 2007 and 2008. The company is self-funded and based in California, USA.

What are the differences to other apps?

Upon first glance, BakeSpace seems much like other similar sites. The website provides recipes, reviews and other features the user expects. What makes BakeSpace stand out is the focus on social interaction and learning. Users can mentor others to share their culinary expertise and food knowledge.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

BakeSpace uses a very mature, clean design that seems to offer up its own elegance. A row of blue buttons runs across the top of the page, providing access to the conversations area, mentors, recipes, members, the user’s kitchen page and other vital areas on the site. The recipe pages feature an image, user reviews and links to print or save the recipe. The site includes banner advertisements, but these seem to be focused on encouraging users to sign up rather than selling third party products and services.

How does the registration process work?

A new user can join the BakeSpace community by clicking the blue and white “Join” button found along the right hand side, near the top of the page (inside the blue header bar). The user can find the registration form just below, under the green “Member Join” header. The form asks for an email address, username and password. The user must also check the bottom box that confirms that they are at least 14 years of age and agree to the BakeSpace terms of use.

What does it cost to use the application?

BakeSpace invites all users to sign up for free. There are no subscription fees or other charges associated with signing up or using the website. The application provides all users with unlimited access. Each user gets the same access to all current features. There is no premium paid membership offered at this time.

Who would you recommend the application to?
