There is no shame in that! Same here, having a son in computer science
in college I have seen what they "teach" for web design and and most is
either obsolete (1996 vintage) or just plain wrong.

improve the site. It would allow your customers to focus on a smaller
collection of cake without limiting the total about of cake that you can
feature on the whole site. Putting them all on one page can be
overwhelming like walking into one of those mega-stores (Wal*Mart) with

My advice is go and do the tutorials on HTML and CSS on www.htmldog.com

practices of web authoring. It will give you a good base to start...
