Thank you JWinslow.

 

On another note just finished a birthday cake for one of my dearest friends.  She loves red & black and flowers, so I decided to do a poppy in modeling chocolate along with the stem and border.  I made MMF over a 2 layer chocolate cake.  I probably could of done a little more, but I figured he who hesitates gets lost.... or something along those lines, so I stopped.  Any advice or critiquing is very much appreciated.

I just realized, as I was whipping through all my notifications, that I had been keeping all my comments to myself, in the interest of getting off the computer so I could head into the kitchen to get some more Christmas baking done. (Boy, my English  teacher would be hanging her head at how little she taught me, seeing that last sentence!) At any rate, I'm going to take a minute and tell you that I absolutely LOVE your dragon. You may, indeed, have a little girly princess but this is just about the sweetest, feminine little dragon I've ever seen. (And that is no oxymoron.) The workmanship is flawless, the colors delightful, and the special effects are stunning.

 

OK, my cranberry/pumpkin/nut bread is calling me to get it out of the oven. 

 

Beautiful cake!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

Yes I should have gave credit again. It has been so long since I started the thread I should have done it again...Just google cake sparklers...They are about the length of cigars and as big around as a skinny cigar. ANd they are cheap too!

I'm very interested in joining this group. I have a small batch of cakes in my gallery already, but is it more in the spirit of things to post links to new cakes as we make them?

 

I'm just a hobbyist, so I need all the help I can get!

post #547 of 759

All you have to do is jump in. The cakes may have been made at any time. They don't have to be recently made. Just post a link to the one in your gallery and we comment on it there.

 

Hobbyist, or professional--it makes no difference. We can all benefit from critical evaluation done in an honest manner.

 

Welcome!

Here's my latest cake- a baby shower cake for the daddy to be! The brief I was given was "a batman sperm cake".. definitely the strangest request I've had thus far! But a welcomed change from baby bump cakes hehe

I have been practicing roses. From left to right is the order they were made in. I would love them to be critiqued honestly and if so inclined give me tips on hoe to make the edges not rough/frayed?

They look good. My only suggestion would be to loosen up the center petals a bit. As for rough edges--are you using a metal ball tool? I just bought metal ones after using plastic ones for years. The difference is amazing. They slide so much better.

I wrote a novel in the description, but am basically after a bit of design critique.
