Your cake looks really pretty.. Sure doesn't look like you had problems with it.. I think you did a great job and I am sure everyone loved it.

I agree that it looks fine--the pattern reminds of a quilt, too. You should have seen some of my first cakes. My first strawberry cake broke apart as I frosted it. Needless to say, I pounded it into the counter. My stepdad said he heard a scream and then saw pink flying up in the air. So, you had way more patience than I did.

I like it. It does remind me of a 60's theme. We all have bad days. But it looked like you overcame the problems you were having. Don't be so hard on yourself. There is always the next cake. And since you like to make notes on each cake, you will no doubt have ideas about what you think went wrong. Keep up the good work!

I think it looks great, especially considering all the problems you had. For the icing, could you have used powdered egg whites? I think they are pasteruized, but not sure. About the only "negative" comment I would make is that it looks a little busy with the pattern.

But the pattern matches, and is symetrical. So it all works. Good job. Nothing I like better than showing up a MIL!

The cake looks great. There are many ways to hide "mistakes". Its just having the creativity to do it. Something I rarely have. But it looks like you do! Was the pattern planned?

You had problems with this cake? It looks good to me! The melted buttercream was covered by the mmf. If the mmf was torn - it didn't show. Looks good! Not an easy pattern!

Hi Everyone, Thanks for your posts. I really appreciate it.

Traci,
We tasted the cake today and it was really good. I liked the MMF but I found that if only I had made it a bit thinner it would've been better because it is a little too sweet. Other than that I got an okay response from everyone.

Cybourg, the pattern was a complete mistake. I wanted to cover the cake with one piece of MMF but when that wasn't working for me I used cookie cutters instead and created this pattern.

ElleC my MIL loved it but found another area to pick on. She said the MMF was too sweet!! I can never win

Cake mommy,
the stuff oozing out at the sides was some left over cookie glaze I had in the freezer. I didn't want to throw it so I added it to my cake. I'm not sure that was such a great idea but it was an experience!! icon_lol.gif

To everyone else, thanks for taking the time to critique my cakes!!! I'll be posting some more for you very soon. I'm also very pleased to say that my sister in law already wants a cake done for her daughter's b-day. I won't be charging her of course but I'm still more than pleased to do it!! icon_biggrin.gif

For all of you that have used MMF and regualr fondant, can you tell me which of the two you prefer when it comes to rolling it out and covering the cake. Is regular fondant as sticky to work with as MMF?

I was also thinking that maybe my cake was too big for my first project. It was a 12 inch chocolate buttercreme filled cake.

I'm sure there are plenty of you that have covered a much bigger cake than that for weddings. Are there any pointers you can give me??


TIA
Daniela

Daniela - I use Satin Ice fondant and love it! It comes in many colors and both vanilla and chocolate flavors.
