This was my first time using modeling chocolate. I really love how this cake turn out. The top part of the cake is made with 50/50 modeling chocolate and fondant. The bottom part is a yellow cake with walnut flavored buttercream, covered in fondant.

Cake Club: Jimmy I'm sure you already know that this is a well done cake. Your use of color is excellent -- I especially like the hair and the dusting at the edge of the ruffles. I also like the details such as the roses and the hair accessory. The fondant on the skirt should have been smoother, and the upper torso/shoulders seem way too small for the length of the arms. The eyes confuse me. If the hearts are supposed to be highlights then the dots are unnecessary (they also make her look cross-eyed). Overall they seem to have an unfriendly look because of the downward brows and heavy liner, and appear to be a cross between "insect" and "alien" rather than human.

Thank you for your feedback. The eyes seemed to give me the most trouble.

Cake Club, She is lovely Jimmy, I agree with Handymama that the expression is a little harsh. I really would have liked to have seen the foil board covered , A nice covered board trimmed with a nice ribbon does seem to lift a cake in level of professionalism. You may need to pay a little more attention to preparing the underneath cake before covering with fondant, I can see a little bulge line and the fondant is a bit bumpy. I love love love the hair WOW .

Cake club comment: Well, I have to say...I love her! What a clever juxtaposition of a "Piece of Cake" cake and a doll cake! I haven't really attempted figures so I don't want to critique that but I will say her hair and hat are fabulous! For the filling on the inside of the cake, I would use a rope of fondant, slightly squashed, as opposed to flat ribbons. It make it look like the filling is oozing out a little bit.

Cake Club. Overall Jimmy she is really cute. Love the hat, hair and pin. As others have already stated the eyes are a little funky. The green fondant could be smoother as well as where the brown meets the green. You might consider changing the color scheme of the "slice". Because of its shape it reminds me a bit of a football (sorry). Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!! (I miss NJ)

I can see what you mean about the cake slice, it does kind of resemble a football. Thanks' for responding to the post. I apperciate the feedback I have received. This was my first attempted using modeling chocolate. I can't wait to try again and taking everyone's suggestions into consideration.

Very cute! I think the eyes are weird, as well. I was thinking bug or alien, myself. I think making the pupils and irises smaller would do a lot for them, and also the heart highlights should be on one side of each eye. Like both hearts on top right sides of each eye, and both smaller dot should be on the lower left side of each eye. Hope that makes sense. And it is perfectly acceptable to paint the eyeliner on, so it isn't so thick and bubbly. Love the dress, and the hair is fabulous!

Cake Club: I think Handymama pretty much covered it for me. This is a wonderful cake. As an artist before cake design its always easier for men to create men and vise versa. With that said remember what sets those ***es apart when creating figures ie chest arms and facial details like jaw. When focused on those areas to make them feminine you will succeed. The eyes just think of one light source so only one set of white either hearts or dots. The hair is amazing and so are the hands! There are LOTS of details that just WOW this piece.

I love everything about your figure. I love the eyes, very mysterious and intriguing. Everything screams perfection except the green fondant the the slice taken from the cake. It just doesn't look like the inside of a layer cake to me. Not sure how I would have done it, but just cleaning up the inside edges would improve the overall appearance and give it more realistic look.
