ONE HUGE CAKE!!!!!!!!!! - Page 5

post #61 of 158
It looks great-don't be so hard on yourself! It's the size of MY CAR for goodness sake! How can you not have a problem or two?! Think about this-the cake is so huge that the little imperfections are just that-little!

I think it looks really good! I can't wait to see it finished.
SO, did I miss a page in this post, or did you end up doing this monster for the $300?

I think it looks great so far! Definitely put on a border, as others have mentioned, and I think some writing in the white space would be just the thing. Can't wait to see the final product!! You should be so proud!!

Gibson!! It looks great!!!!

You have to keep in mind that most people don't really notice how smooth a cake is. Add the other Provinces and a border, and be freakin' proud of your cake!!!! I can't wait to see the finished cake!

Hugs to ya!

I think it's looking good too!! I'm anxious for you!! I like the blue idea, maybe mix up some more icing in blue and put around the providences. You could leave it a little "rough" looking, like water that has waves in it.

Sending good vibes your way - Good luck!!

This cake is awesome! I have been trying to visualize how you were going to do it after first reading your post when you were contemplating whether or not to do it... it's great! If you have time, you can always cover the white in white stars, like the character pan cakes are iced. This would cover any bare spots and also add a different texture. The color mist spray is also a great idea like was mentioned by another poster. I also like the "Happy Birthday" idea that was mentioned.

However, as many others have said, the majority of the people who see your cake are going to be saying "WOW!" and are going to be so impressed by the enormity of the whole thing (size, design, talent, time involved) they aren't going to think anything of not-perfectly-smooth icing! The cakes I've done that I really thought were awful (mostly due to un-smooth icing) were the most appreciated cakes.

You are doing an incredibly wonderful job! Keep smiling, put on some soothing or dancing music, whichever works best for you, and go it!

Can you fill the white area with balloons, maple leafs, other "celebration" designs like fireworks, etc.?

Here's a link I found with some "coloring pages" for Canada Day

I think you're doing a great job! I'm feeling the same about a cake that just got picked up but he insisted that it was great. As a "cake artist" its only natural to see the flaws. Everyone isn't going to notice them. Besides......they'll be too busy scooping there chins off the floor once they see how big it is.

I think you're being too hard on yourself, I think it looks fabulous! I can't imagine taking on something that large, you should be proud of yourself. And, as others mentioned, nobody will see the "flaws" that you do, I didn't! I used to do floral design professionally and could always see flaws in my work, no matter how hard I tried, but everybody always loved what I did. It's kind of like looking in a mirror. We all see 'flaws' in ourselves that nobody else would ever pick up on-even when they were looking straight at them! You should be proud of your work, you did a great job!

I just realized that if you were planning on putting the Territories & Nunavut on there that would take up most of your top white area above BC through Ontario. You could spray blue for water where Hudson Bay & Labrador Sea are & voila - you probably won't have much white left at all!

I personally think it looks great already and I would DEFINATELY advertise with this one. As many others have said, it is WAY too easy for us to see flaws in our own cakes. You have done a fantastic job so far. Keep it up..it is going to be gorgeous! I can't wait to see the end result!
