I'm in. I can't upload a picture right now, at work. Does anyone want to critique my profile picture? I love feed back. I find it is the best way to learn for me.

Here is one of mine. I checked out the other cakes posted and will comment once home - it's not letting me comment from my phone icon_sad.gif

I've always kinda disliked this one. Maybe you guys can give me an idea of where I went wrong design-wise?  (or anything else!)

 

It was done for a bridal show, so purely my own pleasure- I just know it isn't quite "right".

I would like the following two done please. I'm just really starting out and these are my first real cakes. I've just been playing around and trying new things, never taken a class

This one was for a friend's engagement party and my first time using fondant. My research for this cake actually was why I joined CC!!

Great idea, Linda!  I had a question; would it be ok to post photos of cake sketches to get advice on designs too?  Sometimes the hardest part is pulling the design together and it would be great to get feedback and ideas before the cake is even made yet.

Hi, Kristin! I can't take credit for the idea, that was all FromScratchSF! Your idea is great!

I would love to join in.  Although I cannot offer a professional, Cake Show Judge level of perspective, I can offer the perspective of an "intermediate" decorator who still vividly recalls the trials and tribulations of the first, second, and current (third) year of cake decorating. 

 

I've already picked up a tip from ScratchSF:  "When I fill my square cakes I put an extra dab of buttercream in each corner between each layer of cake. When I get all my layers on, all my corners slope up! Then I take a cake card the same size of my cake and use it to smoosh everything flat. That extra icing comes out from the corners and I scrape it off. It helps to prevent that slope."

Trial and error, my friend!  If you just add more buttercream to the top of the cake to make it flat it adds even more weight sloping everything down.  Really the only way to help it is to make sure you have each layer's corner properly supported evenly.  

 

I'm so glad this is helping!
