Your cake is exactly why I want to "do cakes". The perfect board, the bright cheerful colors, the obvious lack of anything close to what a chain store could make....love it!

I, too, think they're both terrific cakes!!!!

I'm patiently waiting for that "aha moment" when I'll finally see some improvement in my work. icon_smile.gif

When I looked at the first one I thought, how can you get better then this? Obviously I was wrong. The expression is captured so well on the second one. In the future when I make one of these, maybe I'll turn to you for advice if you wouldn't mind!

Both of your cakes are truly amazing. The detailing is awesome. You are very talented. Even the cake of 9 months ago looks like someone who has been doing cakes a long time did it. You are an inspiration. thumbs_up.gif

When I scrolled down to the first cake, I thought that it was the one you were sharing as the improved one (gosh, does that make sense?) Anyway, i was blown away by the second cake. Wow, you did an amazing job on both of them. The first was really great, but the second showed attention to detail that really makes it stand out. Keep up the good work.

Absolutely amazing, you need to give yourself a big pat on the back!
In all honestly though, I think both cakes are pretty awesome though...I only hope to be able to achieve such a great cake!

Both cakes are great. It's funny you posted SB cakes. I was just taking a break from the galleries where I was searching for a sb cake for my son....I think I now found it! Love Love Love the cakes!

GREAT job........they both look so cute. I wish I could only improve that much. You've got talent to see that the details make a difference, I do need to remember that & not get in a hurry & so frustrated.

wow great job on both! I definitely see the improvements in the 2nd, but the 1st ain't nuttin' to sneeze at, either!

Are those blown sugar bubbles in the cake boards??

I scrolled down to see the first picture and thought, "this has to be the most recent" and was amazed when I scrolled further and saw the second pic. They're both great but the second one -- WOW! Wonderful work!
