My sadness and Lemon icing mini cakes


I am devastated; I loose my Flickr pro account. After a problem with my laptop, I signed in with my usually Id but it don’t work anymore, I send mails to yahoo and Flickr and after Flickr said that I must try to contact Yahoo, they didn’t answer me more, once Yahoo ´didn’t send me back an single answer about this. The big problem is that I pay on November for two years. What a pitty. So no story for theses mini cakes, I only said that they are ideal for a cup of tea or coffee and the kids love it. If you like you would use different colors and flavors for the icing.

Don't give up on contacting Flickr/Yahoo about your account. You deserve an explanation as to why they took away your pro account status! I love your blog, by the way. The recipes and photos are always beautifully presented. Un beso! Chau!

So sorry to read about your problems with flickr. Keep trying with them and Yahoo. Don't give up. And in the meantime, think about starting a new account with the free services. You have a lot of wonderful photos to share. So, it would be a shame for you to give up.

You small cakes look scrumptious.

I'm sorry to hear about this. Hope they will eventually reply to you. I lost a lot of my recipe files with photos lately and I know how that feels.

So you are able to sign in to Yahoo and Flickr but the PRO label is gone? Do you have more than one Yahoo account? I hope it gets fixed soon.
I am loving the mini-cakes though, they look delicious!

Perhaps there's a support-phone or chat have you tried ? I hope it'll be fixed soon.

I don't understand. There has to be something that can be done Sylvia.

You have the email receipt of the payment you made in November right?

You have to to bombard them and get results, please do not accept this just like that.
