A friend of mine has paid me to make this cake for her. This is the first cake I have really taken money for. Please tell me what you think? It wont attach so it is in my photos.

It is based off these 2 cakes she sent me

She only like the bottow tier

We used this as the basis for the top.

Hmm, I didn't see anything striped in your photos--it looks like possibly the last photo is the uniced choco cakes? Often the last photo loaded is the top left photo but I'm not sure.

Maybe it takes a few minutes to appear...

I for one think your work is very nice. We all place expections on ourselves that sometimes can be hard to reach, but keep it up and soon you'll meet your goals. The important thing to remember is whether your customer (friend) liked it.

I don't see a striped cake in your photos either. I'll check back later.

OK wait--I got the impression that the cakes in the links were examples of cakes the client wanted and the photo of the cake she made is in her photo file on CC--where's the beef?

Sorry if that was confusing... here is the photo of the cake I made

The other 2 links are the ones my friend sent for me to use as inspiration.

It's there now, Kate.

Mindy, I think you did just fine incorporating the two designs. I think we are all our own harshest critics. I still hate to write on cakes, and use cut-outs any time I can get away with them. I really admire the people who write effortlessly and always have things centered. It's a true gift. icon_biggrin.gif

The cake looks good, your BC is nice and smooth (something i've yet to perfect!) As for the writing, it comes with practice. I also use cut outs whenever I can. Keep up the good work! thumbs_up.gif

I think your cake looks nice....it is prettier than the two you had to look at for ideas.

Writing is hard for many people....even after years of practice. Try this option.....buy a set of plaque cutter, roll out some fondant and cut out, then write your message with an edible marker pen.
