I don't icon_redface.gif Okay, so I guess this isn't a TRUE disaster, but I cannot stop kicking myself over it! I was so in love w/ my Spongebob cake (not to compare w/ the talent around here thumbs_up.gif ) but I felt pretty good about him. They came and picked up the cake, and then I went to put my pix on the computer. That's when I saw he has NO EYELASHES icon_cry.gif I don't know why I didn't notice it; now I can't stop looking at the pix and thinking he looks freaky icon_sad.gif Do you think they noticed it????

Cute cake.

Don't say a word and they'll never notice. If you mention it you'll sow the seed of doubt in their minds... all of a sudden they'll be picking it apart, finding tons of mistakes.

You know us decorators are our worst critics. I agree, they'll probably never notice. It came out great and I'm sure they did love it!!ax

Thanks, you guys. I haven't mentioned it to them; I just feel a little sad. He was the first Spongebob that I didn't fill in w/ star tips icon_lol.gif I have two other spongebobs but they weren't carved or iced smooth (well, that is iced then sponged with a New sponge, of course icon_razz.gif )
Thanks for the votes of confidence icon_smile.gif

I looked at the pic before I read your post and I didn't even notice. It's not like you left off his pants or anything major! He looks good!

Ditto here. I didn't notice until I read the post (sort of peaked at the photo first).

It's cute as it is! Don't say a word about the eyelashes, or lack of.

I once made a Cinderella cake using the Wilton mold, and after the client picked up the cake and I was uploading the pics to my computer, I noticed Cinderella had no eyebrows.

I laughingly told my client the next time she ordered a cake, and since then, she mentions it every time she orders a cake. She says "Don't forget the eyebrows! hahahah" no matter what kind of cake it is.

I will never mention another cake flaw to anyone ever again! icon_redface.gif

It looks great. I wouldn't have noticed the eyelashes missing either.

There was an episode(s) of SpongeBob where he plucked his eyelashes off...can't remember why (not that I even dare to ponder anything that dumb sponge does), but pretend that's what you were going for... icon_lol.gif

icon_lol.gif My daughter kept going around the house saying, "The boy wears mascara?!!! What a card!" It was something that Patrick Star's Mother (turned out it wasn't his mom after all in the end icon_rolleyes.gif ) had said about Spongebob... My DD told me I was being hyper critical of the cake, too. So I guess I'm thru plotzing over it because she is my biggest critic. icon_razz.gif


AND! OMG, Amia! I just noticed that you are in San Antonio, like me. Not only that, but your birthday is my Mom's birthday, too! Crazy, small world icon_smile.gif

Awwww... I know you're kidding (at least I think I know hehehe). Really, I love it here. I've lived here my whole life and wouldn't want to live anywhere else. I love to visit here, there and everywhere but this is home sweet home thumbs_up.gif

Girl are you nuts?! When I saw the pic I was like, "woo she actually carved the sides of the cake like sp" I've done this cake and I just make a squiggly line and call it a day. If you hadn't mentioned eyelashes I'd never know.

Now that you say that, he looks just like my best friend who pulled out her eyelashes icon_smile.gif Just kidding.

Coming from someone who loves spongebob, I know that there are times on the show his eyelashes do not show. Like when he sees something he loves and gets all dreamy eyed! I love your cake its super cute!
