Honestly, I think it's perfect! You made a personal creation that reflects what the couple wanted!

I only wish you had been able to snap a picture for your portfolio with a better background. I guess that's what Photoshop is for. LOL

Terrific job!

i know the backround is awful! i wasnt happy with were they wanted the cake setting up, it was right by were all the children were playing and the table was VERY unstable! i have a friend who is good at fixing backrounds and things on photos (i cant do it lol)

thank you all, it always means alot when my CC family like my work, mainly because you all know what to look for and how a cake should look. friends and family seem to think that anything is amazin! icon_confused.gificon_eek.gif

That cake was awesome! I just wish the background was better too, because it was such a neat cake that I wanted to see the details properly.
great work!

Get one of those folding cardboard/foamboard backgrounds kids use for science projects. Either get one that is solid black or paint it black or cover it with a neutral fabric or wrapping paper. You can then carry it with you as a portable backdrop. Lightweight, folds up, just set it on the back of the table, snap your pic, and then take it away. Easy peasy!

That is the cutest thing! I love it.......great job!

I love it!

The background, well I can't comment. I don't think I have a pic of any cake I'm proud of in my portfolio that doesn't have one or more of the following:

A bottle of Tabasco
My Dad's floppy hat
A chair
Glare
A buzzard, humming bird or bees

Or my most favorite the hole that Grandpa and the kid swiped the frosting from. Funny, how they always manage to do it on the front of the cake. LOL

The first issue of CC magazine has a great article of taking good pics of cakes.


Anyways I think your cake is gorgeous.
