The "overdecorating" monster... lol - Page 2

post #16 of 28
I honestly love the finished cake. I don't struggle with over decorating, but it is that I find my cakes underdone half the time. I look at everyone elses cakes and feel like a hack. How do ya'll make it look so effortless and perfect?

I love it with the added yellow stars. It fills the top of the cake more without it being overdone or over crowded.

i love the final cake! way better, good thinking to add the extra stars-i think that's what makes it such a fab cake!! koodos!! i second everyone else-in that the first pic was great, but the last pic was awesome! not overdecorated at all!!
me on the other hand...did you see my farm/sheep pic? (in profile) over decorated....and then there's the nursery rhyme cake....completely overdecorated.....
so you have no worries! your monster is harmless and is staying hidden....!

The final product has my vote also. I do not think there are too many stars. It looked a little naked before - like you ran out of fondant or something. I think the final one is perfect!!

If this cake is a representation of what you do when you "overdo" a cake, don't learn any self-control. I love the cake. I think it's perfect with all the stuff on it. Not overdone at all, the eye keeps moving and enjoying all it's seeing. Good job.

it is an art to keep it neat and simple.....been doing this now for about 35 years....when i look back at cakes done about 20 -30 years ago i see the overdone monster....now i like the simple look.

I dont think you overdecorated it, I see what your saying, about the less stars, but I'd MUCH rather have the 'too many' stars (not that I think that) then the 'no stars' version... icon_smile.gif

and I tend to overdecorate too. Especially with fondant/gumpaste fiqures. LOL I try to include EVERYTHING I can think of in that theme...
