It looks incredible & your idea to use the impression of actual denim if brilliant!

The cake is fantastic - love the design!

If you're truly looking for a critique, the biggest comment I would say has nothing to do with the actual cake - it's your photo. Take a look at some of your favorite sites. Or go through and look at the most saved or most viewed photos on this site. Notice anything in common? Most of them have a solid background. Just using your kitchen detracts from the cake. Buy a couple yards of fabric, one light, one dark, and drape it over a box and onto the table and then set the cake on that for pictures. I never used to worry about that because I only do this as a hobby but when I got a website I was so sorry I hadn't!

I have such a critical eye and can't find anything wrong with your cake, it's simply FABULOUS. She must have been thrilled.

I love the SPS system for stacking cakes. I just commented on your cake in the gallery. I think you did a great job on the cake, just try & get a clean background next time you take a picture of such a lovely cake.

I think that is the cutest, fricken cake and I have no critiques. As far as spelling goes or grammer, as long as you don't do it on a paid order, who cares. I am sure you will that catch that on your own. LOVE IT!

Thanks everyone! Yeah I should know better about taking pictures without a prop because I used to make alot of crafts and sell online..lol! Next time I will make sure I use something behind the cake. We did eat the bottom piece, it was pretty good but I don't think I put enough BC icing because the middle layer was thin and it looked a little melted or softened, and the cake kinda soaked in a little.(and yes the cakes were completely cooled in my fridge) ..if that makes sense. It was sweet though!! lol.

Wow- this is a great cake!! Good for you! You are very talented. I agree you should showcase your cakes with a great photo - you both deserve it. Please, I don't even own a camera and my "cellasourus" phone isn't cutting it!

I have been using SPS for every tiered cake- there is a sticky with all info about it posted by Leah. I really takes so much of the worry out of the equation, they are not expensive- I get mine from Oasis and buy a rework every size so I don't run out.

Really- you did a great job on this cake!!!

If you put a dowel down the center of the cake the tiers can "spin". I put 2 dowels offset all the way thru the cake. I have delivered a 3 tier cake 7 hours away with no problem.

Pearl645,

Sorry just saw your message. I colored some gumpaste and made the 8 into a S shape and connected it with a piece of toothpick and tylose glue to make it look like a 8. They don't take long to dry! The 1 had a toothpick in the bottom of it so I stuck it in the cake and with my tylose glue attached the 8 to it.
