I'm a little confused...you say "this cake", but there's no cake to look at. Are we supposed to look at one in your gallery?

I think it's wonderful! And I'm going to be honest here, a lot of the cakes that get the most comments are usually "pretty" and "elegant" so please don't feel badly if you don't get a lot of feedback or comments.

You have a lot of talent, so keep creating!

I think s/he's referring to the one in her gallery entitled, "The Painted Cake." It's the one with the gumpaste panels.


And, to the artist:
I think this is a great technique and that you are a gifted artist.

However, is that a gun that you've painted? I may not be understanding your intent or your art, but I worry that your beautiful talent is glorifying violence. I'd want my brother to be around for many more birthdays....

I believe it's a tattoo gun, not a handgun. icon_smile.gif The OP mentioned her brother is a tattoo artist. I like the look of it all together!

Sorry for not adding the link. I'm not concerned at the number of comment. It was something I came up with and wanted feedback. Thanks to all the feedback I have received. My brother is 32 and yes he is a tattoo artist with his own shop. No that is not a gun, it is a tattoo gun. Here is the link sorry for that once again. http://cakecentral.com/gallery/2152295

No problem dawncr....sometimes I'm in a hurry and don't pay attention to what I'm doing. I thought it could have looked like a gun also. No worries.

I didn't mean to imply you were trying to increase your comments. I was just saying that if you don't get the amount of feedback you're anticipating, it's not because it isn't talented work. icon_smile.gif

@emrldsky....It's so easy to misread a comment. I understood what you were saying. They way I responded made it seem like I didn't. I meant to say I'm not too concerned at the number of comments on my picture and even if it was just one comment on this link it would be great. I know that it is so easy to pass by a fantastic cake sometimes or even a post so no biggie if there are not a lot of number of replies. Thank you for taking your time and posting your comments as well as mentioning the tattoo gun! : )

I really liked it! I think it's a super neat idea especially because of the graffiti, tattoo feel you were going for. If I had done this I would have probably have airbrushed the colores and then came back and added the lines and details. Having said that I love your work, great job!
