I think it is looking pretty darn cute so far. Whats the disaster? Did you run out of fondant?

doesn't it look lopsided? and rounded at the edges?
it is really presentable? I thought about cutting off the fondant (if possible) and putting pannels up, I'll post a pic

They look fine, remind me of pillow blocks. Just finish off the first two blocks. Definitely presentable. If they're for a baby shower, add a little rattle or teddy bear to sit on/next to them. Just something small and cute.

They Look Great!!

We are our own worst critics. And you have been staring at them for way too long and up too close. Step back, take a deep breath, and get them finished! They look great!

Thank you guys so much!! That really helps!! Thank you!
It is for a shower, should I put anything in the middle, dead space, or just put a small bear, rattle, duck...something on each block?

any tutorials on small fondant baby creatures?

It's great! Maybe a little simple rubber duck. Do you have any moulds?

When I'm doubting my work, which is pretty often, I leave the room. Then, I make myself think like a person who's seeing the cake for the 1st time and doesn't have any expectations. When, I go back into the room, I always decide it looks better than I thought! icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

Those blocks are adorable, and people will love them!!!!!
