Please give me your honest opinion......I won't get offended

Okay everyone here it is.....

Please give me your honest opinion on my cake. Don't worry about hurting my feelings because I understand that it's only constructive criticism.

Making this cake was definately an experience. It was my first time using MMF and it gave me so many problems. I made the cake last night and ran into my first set of complications when I decided that it wasn't a good idea to add raw eggs into my chocolate buttercream because my pregnant niece would most likely be tasting the cake. So then as you can see the buttercream started melting icon_cry.gif Then today I tried covering the cake in MMF and it kept breaking. I was ready to loose it because it wasn't going so well and to top it all off my MIL kept telling me that there was nothing I could do to save it............I guess I showed her!! I definately learned a lot from this cake and I look forward to making plenty more.

TIA for your honesty!!! Take care

I think it looks just fine! I can't even see any melting buttercream?? It looks like a lot of work anyway - even without ANY problems! Good job.
I learn something new from almost every cake I do...the trick is remembering it! icon_lol.gifthumbs_up.gif

You're absolutely right Sunlover00
that's why I'm constantly making notes about everything. Even after I bake a cake I always right down my comments about it just so I remember for the next time I plan on using that recipe!!! icon_wink.gif

You're very sweet
thanks for your comment

Considering all the problems...I think you did a great job. It has a fun whimsical look. I have still not tried MMF because I am afraid I will end up with a big sticky mess! By the way, how did the cake taste??? Did everyone like the taste of MMF????

I would have never guess you hadn't planned to make this cake just as it turned out! You did a great job covering up your "learning experiences".

By the way, is that picture of the young sexy girl you? Just wondering!

You definitely showed your MIL...a beautiful cake that nobody would ever guess that you'd had a problem at all! That is a really intricate design, did you work it out ahead of time, how the pieces would fit together, I mean?

That is a really a nice cake! Janice

I think your cake is great! How did you come up with the very unique design? I am just curious as I can't come up with such unique ideas! I usually have to look at something to get any ideas........very creative thumbs_up.gif
I can't tell where you had problems.....looks good to me!

What is that darker purple stuff on the cake! It looks like it's oozing out! Not that that's bad. The cake looks like a pudgy pillow you find in a dorm room. Very cool!

Cakemommy, oozing isn't usually a 'good' thing either! Daniela, you are so brave trying such a complicated design for your first time using it! MIL's are so supportive aren't they? It's fine! I know you've been frustrated with it, I've seen your posts over the last day. I haven't tried MMF yet. Just tried to make my first fondant loop bow today.....I made the loops on the broom stick yesterday and lustered it today, I waited 2 hours for that to dry and then started assembling, one by one my loops fell apart and soon after I let the whole pile fall into the trash. I have more loops drying on the broom stick. Try, try again!
