I worked very hard on this cake while I was 8 months pregnant. I think it came out great! What do you think?

This is a cake I made for my son's movie themed birthday party. I spent a LOT of time on this and really like the way it came out especially the popcorn and candy.

maudie, i love your cake! I just commented icon_wink.gif

I hope I can say this nicely...I think you could do your cakes more justice by a better photo and/or a better backdrop. I like to put something up if I have a mess and make sure I have a good camera. I know everyone can't afford a really great camera, but I see graininess in your photo...which could also be the case of the very bright light off to the left of the camera. Its better to light from the front of the cake. this would also help to see more detail of the cake! Cuz you do really nice work icon_biggrin.gif HTH!



Thank you for your comment and suggestions. Since this photo was taken, I have purchased a good camera ( still getting the hang of it though) But you can definatly tell which cakes were taken with my old camera phone. I do agree that I need to get a better back drop. Thanks again for the advice icon_smile.gif

I picked up one of these, cut it to fit between the stove top and range hood, and spray painted it black (they do come in black, but not all stores carry them in all colors, where I bought mine they only had the green):

When I want to take a pic, I set it up on the stove top with the 'wings' open (if you don't have a flat top you'll need to get another piece of cardboard as a base), turn on the light on the range hood, set up my cake and click away. when I'm done it folds up for storage. I plan to get another one and paint it white so that darker cakes will show up better.

Life begins at 325° F, and, yes, that IS powdered sugar in my hair.

This "beer" bottle cake of mine got MUCH needed kudos in my area but not much with C.C. It was very time consuming and intricate.

I spent a lot of time figuring out supports and such for this cake.... http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2177861 I had to travel a few hours by car with it. It was only my second 3' or taller cake.
