First off - congrats on your first 3D order! SO exciting, isn't it?? =) What do you need to make? What do you need advice for - how to make? or what to charge? I'm fairly new to it myself, for the 3D carvings... I've done many a 3D Thomas the Train or Winnie the Pooh with Wilton stand-up pans... so, do you have a stand-up pan to work with, or will you be carving? Either way, use a good dense recipe, or at least a box mix which includes pudding in the mix (most do now). DH is good. Don't be afraid to use skewers or other support system, just tell the customer where they are & explain why they're necessary - and even draw them a little guide. I'm excited for you! I'll keep watching this one to make sure you get answers! =)

You're an Artist - don't doubt yourself, she's great! =) (I know what you mean though, new things cause me to second-guess & doubt as well!)

i think it looks good. I know what you mean by doubting yourself when it's your first. We usually have extremely higher expectations for ourselves. Don't worry you did a great job on you figure. I think it looks awesome
