From what I can see it looks pretty dang good to me! When you take your next pic, try to get one using a solid back ground. It makes it a little easier to see the details. What size are your tiers? I like your colors, vibrant and cheerful! Good job! and remember to keep practicing.

That's really your first? It's really well done. You'll have people buying wedding cakes from you before you know it! But most of all, have fun!
Good job, and I like your colors, too! thumbs_up.gif

That's true -- all of the background stuff detracts from the beauty of your masterpiece! Just buy a 59 cent black posterboard at Target and have someone hold it behind the cake while you photo it.

WOW!! You really jump in head first, don't you? Trying cake, fondant and tiers all in one shot! You did a wonderful job!!!!!!!!!!
