The request was for a cake with a squirrel eating corn on the cob...for a lady that loves to watch squirrels eat corn in her backyard! I put the vines around with the leaves and thought it looked weird so I scraped it all off and painted on the tree trunks and limbs...but now I'm wondering if it's too dark. Which one do you like better????

I think the second one with the tree trunks looks better. The squirrel really stands out on it! It looks very very good!

They are both cute but the second just kind of "pops" - I really like it! Love the trees and leaves!

I like the tree limbs... makes a more complete scene. The color isn't off putting to me because it just adds depth to the design, and showcases your skills.
Great piping! thumbs_up.gif

The second one! The squirrel really pops...I don't think it's too dark.

I have to go with the consensus on this one. I like the second one, it looks more finsihed. I'm sure they loved it!

I think the color difference between the tree and the squirrel is a great contrast. Also that your leaves aren't flat helps to create the 3-D effect . Great cake thumbs_up.gif

Both look great but #2, has more colorful detailing and it is more eye catching. I like the trees better then the vines. The trees with the leaves make your cake look like a peice of art. I think you made a wonderful choice, by going with cake #2.

Great Job!!!
God Bless,

The first one looks kind of plain and has a bit of a grocery store feel to it, but the second one is very unique. I love the 2nd one! I'm jealous of your skills. That squirrel looks almost real (so does the corn for that matter). Great job. thumbs_up.gif
