I feel like I have come so far in the last year and a half. I made the first r2-d2 a little over a year ago for my nephew and the second one for his friend last week.
I just want to thank all of you's for that. I still have a long way to go for my cakes to look like a lot of the ones on here. I feel like someday I will get their thanks to all of you's. This site is wonderful and very helpful. Again Thank You's. Jaime

It's nice to see someone who is not satisfied with where they are. The fisrt one was perfectly acceptable and probably got tons of compliments but you knew you could do better so you kept at it!
Good job!!

That is so cool!

I tell my students all the time take pictures of every cake you do, even the ones you are not so proud of. That way you can always look back and see how much you have improved.

Great job!

Awesome. great job. I look at your work and just keep telling myself "keep going you'll get there". For me, it's hard to find time to practice as much as I would like. 3 Small kids doesn't help. icon_lol.gif

Great work, keep going!!
