I think it's sweet too. One person's imperfection is another's art!

I think your being too hard on yourself. I think the cake is great! We all have these moments so dont worry. When the person comes to pick it up let us know what she says.

My only criticism is that you charged (way) too little. $50-60 is more like it. Cute! Please post of you made any changes! Thank you for posting something that was not what you thought was your best...good modeling! <<<Cheryl

No "horsing around" that cake doesn't look like a "Night- Mare" its beautiful
OK, my jokes suck, but trying to bring a smile to your face, this cake is lovely, and its really too bad you charged so little.

I like idea of moving an eye up a little bit.I really think it would improve the size of the head.But I'm soooooooooooooo done with this cake.I don't really care if I have to give to her free of charge.
I don't know, maybe I'm being all nonsense now.
Can't you tell I had a long day icon_smile.gif.
Thank you for being so kind and encouraging.
When you have a day like this, I don't even know if I want to do something like this for living.I really have a whole another deal or respect for anybody that gets a main income doing this.
It is definately more work than you'd ever do doing any other job.
You guys are great.
I think I'm still going to keep it as my hobby though icon_smile.gif.

Edited to say - At least I know I made 270 CC members laugh today.I bet anyone that saw it had a great deal of laughing by looking at this thing.
Gotta count it for something, right? thumbs_up.gificon_biggrin.gif



I'm not laughing....I think you did one heck of a good job. I understand your frustration when you think it is not the best you can do, we are our own worst critic. My grandsons would sooooooo love to be presented with this cake. You did good, and the people who are getting this cake for peanuts....well, they did very very good. thumbs_up.gif

I agree with everyone! You are being too hard on yourself! After you take a shower, if you have time, try to move that eye! I think it will help you view it better later on! We are are own worst critics! There have been times where I have wanted to scrap a whole cake and not give them anything because I couldn't do what I had envisioned!

I think the horse looks wonderful! i have never done one and I have never seen one posed like that! They are going to freak at how cool this looks! Very nice job!

Rats! I miss everything. I didn't get a laugh out of it! I still think it's cute! And the more I look at it the more I agree moving the eye would definitely balance out the proportion of the head. You can also make the line for the outline of the 'cheek' and thin the head that way too.

I think you did an outstanding job. I don't have the guts to try something like that---yet! Don't be so hard on yourself. If you learned something from this cake to make your next cake even better then it was worth it. You go girl!!

We are in suspense here... what did the customer say?

Did you move the eye?

LOL,I know the feeling.I'm in the suspense too icon_lol.gif .I didn't deliver it yet.I just got it done a couple of hours ago.I don't have to deliver it until tomorrow afternoon.I'm still considering an eye idea.I'm just so sick of it right now, I don't even wanna see it yet.But I have whole half of a day tomorrow.That way I will be able to have fresh start on it.
You guys made me feel much better,but I still don't know if I can bring myself to open up the refigerator.
I'll post the picture of improved eye.If I get enough nerve to do it.

The first thing that popped into my head when I saw your cake , "cool"....and it is !!! I can only imagine how much work you put into it icon_eek.gif

I do agree that moving the eye would put the head more into perspective but you've done a fabulous job !! thumbs_up.gif

You could....if you are ready to work with it a bit more...carve into the neck just a tad bit and make the neck muscle...then carve the "cheek" and move the eye up a little...I think that with a little bit more carving and a little bit of shaping and putting the stars back on it would be fine to YOU! But...it looks great to me! I don't think we can ever please ourselves Lejla. I always keep looking and keep rethinking my designs..and ya know what? Sometimes that's not such a good thing....I just have to stop...walk away....close the door or what have you...ya gotta breathe...if you are done with it then so be it, ya gotta cute cake there hun!!! So don't overthink it!!

Maybe it's just me but I think it is awesome.

Hope I can be that good one day.

I think it's great ! And I'm not a horse person even though I live where lots of people are. I wouldn't have even attempted it.

Someone mentioned a caricature. That put this silly picture into my head of a car with a horse laying down (you could see it from behind the car on the ledge behind the rear seats) with a bobble head! icon_lol.gif
