How bad is this cake? Please be honest!

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I need to give a few really cute pictures to a lady interviewing me on Monday for the bakery. I wanted this cake to turn out cool, then it sort've started looking like it was having an identity crisis, so I decided instead of breathing fire, it would be blowing a bubble...

UGH! I should've stopped when I first started feeling tired and given up until tomorrow. Now it's a mess!

How bad is it??!!! Be honest!!!

I guess it's important to note that the pictures have to be kid's birthday cake pictures - since she writes for a parenting magazine.....

I think it's cute.. even with the bubble. It probably would have been more realistic with the fire, but you can DEFINITELY see your talent at first glance. I'm sure everything will go perfect! Good luck! thumbs_up.gif

I think it looks great....what's the problem? icon_smile.gifThe varied shades of green and contrasting textures give it a very professional look and it's not sloppy or juvenile. I think it looks very cool!

I like the head and you should've did fire instead of a bubble. Don't really care to much for the body but still a nice cake.

Yeah, I hate the legs! They're the worst part... Why I used the star tip I have no idea.

I think your cake is super cute! I love the sheepish look on his face almost like it got caught blowing a bubble when it should have been breathing fire! I think it's great! Good luck! thumbs_up.gif
Enjoy the little things, for one day you will look back and realize they were the big things!

Really, what do you think is wrong with it. It looks very professional, you have used different mediums perfectly. I do agree that from the view in the picture the fire may have looked better since at first sight I thought it just had a big nose...I still think it looks great

Raquel, I hate the legs, face and tail. haha

I think the face is weird, the legs shouldn't have been done in a star tip and the tail is not that great. I think I will revamp this cake tomorrow. I have until Monday!

Thanks you guys!!! I'll probably play with it more and then repost a new pic!

I think it's terribly cute, but the bubble in particular doesn't look so much like it's being blown, just like kind of a big pink ball. It needs to be just a bit further away and have a little sort of tail leading to the mouth to look like it's being blown as a bubble.

i think it would look better without the bubble...not sure if i would have known what it was if you hadn't told us. i like his expression.

My daughter is six and she just saw the cake and loved it. She said, "Oh mom, the dragon's blowing a bubble...how cool is that!!!"

The background is what makes the cake look a litte off...on a plain black backround he looks really cute. See...

Also, I'd move the stick of gum so you could see the package better...maybe put a couple of crumpled up wrappers on top of the package too.

The cake is wonderful. You definitely have some wicked, awesome talent. The only drawback is the bubble and if it were my cake that's all I would personally change about it.
