The "overdecorating" monster... lol

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Just thought I'd share my overdecorating minor disaster! LOL

Decorated this grad cake last night (the barest one). I wasn't happy with it really, but thought it was ok. So I get up this morning and decide I can't stand it I have to fix it.

Wish I'd stopped about 1/2 way through - I used paint shop to edit the pic so you can see where I wish I'd stopped. Waaay to many yellow stars! Darn it - can't take them off now.

Need to figure out how to control the overdecorator monster in me!! LOL

I too have the over decorator monster in me!!! I like they all look good, but maybe best with just the school logo and a few small stars whimsical around the name.

But they got a great cake so no worries.

I can totally relate! I wonder how many other people struggle with that as well. icon_biggrin.gif

I like it. Really! Not overdone at all! In fact in my opinion it would look way too plain if you left off your extra yellow stars. It's a celebration cake and it looks festive and fun. They will love it! I think there's a time to use discretion in decor...such as a wedding cake...but a grad cake like this or a birthday is perfect for over-the-top design I think...although I don't think this was over-the-top at all. It was perfectly fine! thumbs_up.gif

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

I, too, love the final product. I think it looks nice and festive and not too busy at all.

I think the final cake is great too. I too need over decorators anonymous. I just can't seem to tell when enough is enough!

Thanks everyone! LOL The grad loved it at her party today (my friend's daughter so I got to go). One of these days I'll learn some self-control, though! icon_smile.gif
