Hope this pic works.

Just wondering if you can give me your opinions on my figures and my cake in general? It was my first wedding cake.

The cake and the figures or just the figures?  There are some tutorials on this site.  I don't really do many, but I have one this for a cake for this weekend.  They do take time and patience.

AI think it is a very darling cake, but needs a lot more icing ;-) You should not be able to see the cake through it. The texture really looks nice though. Something to keep in mind with a chocolate mold, is you do not have to fill the whole thing up, the candies on the front would've been a lot cuter if they had about a third, to a quarter as much chocolate in them. Your figures are super cute!

Very, very nice!
 
I think your figures are really cute, I love their clothes...
The only thing I would suggest for next time, is working on the outstretched arms and hands so they look more natural.
 
...maybe you could bend the man's right arm so that his hand is resting on his own thigh, or even by his side...or have both figures touching hands...or have her right arm touching his back...
something along those lines.
 
Lorraine McKay has an awesome free hand tutorial, by the way...
it's how I learned to do them:

AYep very cute!! I would agree with FlourPots about making them look abit more natural, but otherwise they' re really good.

AThanks for all the encouragement! I wish I could spend weeks and weeks to perfect them!

I look at them now, and I realize their arms look very stuff hahah. Oh well! I'll take it on board for next time.
