Ok I need an honest opinion from someone (my mom just isnt doing it)..I am doing a baby girl shower for this weekend..i have made a duck for the top of the cake (it's my first time doing a duck that's more "animated"), what you think of it?? I am pretty big newbie and if there is anything i can do to improve I would love any helpful hints! (i wont be hurt by anything anyone says)
Thank you!

I think your duck is adorable I wouldn't do anything to it, it's perfect just the way it is icon_smile.gif

I'm probably not the best person to critique because I have zero artistic talent, but I think it is adorable!! thumbs_up.gif

It's adorable! I think your cake will be the talk of the shower since I'm sure your cake will be great based on this little portion. icon_smile.gif Only tip, although I don't think it needs it, would be maybe add a dot of white royal icing to the blue of the eye (like a reflection?). Good luck!

She is absolutely precious. Can I have one?

Awwww...I really think he's perfectly cute! I might just add small black dots near the center bottom of the blue part of his eyes so he looks "focused" - right now he seems like he's got cataracts? LOL. Other than that, seriously cute and I wouldn't change a thing...great job by the way!

Well, since I can't do a duck,i'm in no position to criticize,your mom is right,the duck is very cute.

give the eyes some black pupils, maybe make him look to the side, it will definitly improve his expression, apart from that I think he looks cute!!!

I just wanted to put my 2 cents in also. It's perfect! Adding the eyelashes just made it even cuter
