I made this cake today for my sons birthday party tomorrow. He is turning two icon_razz.gif . anywhoo, after all a days work I started and finished the cake, but Im not sure if I like it or not. I admit that I kinda rushed through it and didnt really have an exact plan in mind when I started. The animals are made of fondant and the little clown on top is supposed to be my son. Would you say this cake is good enough for his party? I am a cake decorator (my profession) and want the other mommies and daddies and friends etc. to be wowed by my cake and skills, will this do it? I also made the popcorn cupcakes that I saw on this site (forget who) and are really pleased with how they turned out. Please let me know your opinions, good or bad, ASAP! Thanks in advance! icon_confused.gif

I'm sure it's fine, but it would help if you posted a picture so we could see what you are describing.

Very cute cake, and since you have those cupcakes to go with also, I would say it's a home run!

Thanks guys for all the support! I took you alls advice and presented my cake (I added my sons name in giant green fondant letters behind the clown on top). The parents went crazy over it and so did the kids. It was such a great party, I will NEVER forget how awesome it was to see everyone have fun, and above all my son. You guys are a great bunch of folks! thanks again! ( I will try to repost the updated picture, it added alot to the cake!
