AGreat cake, I like the bright colours and the top effect. I would say the second tier looks a bit loop-sided, maybe work on getting the butercream super level and smooth before you apply the fondant? This is much easier to do with ganache. Overall it's nice a cake, also there's a cake club thread where you can post your pictures and everyone will give their opinions and tips on how to improve. :)

Very cute.  Does the top of that stand turn like a turn table?  If so, I would center the cake between the 2 legs.  For me, personally, I would have put the red in the middle only because it has one eye.  

 

For the bottom, red tier there is a trick to the dots.  Dab your finger in a bit of water and lightly touch the tip.  It will push right down and the dots will look solid without peaks.

 

Really cute.  I'm sure this was the highlight of someone's party.

Great cake!  To remove peaks on the dots you can also dip your finger in ps or cornstarch and then flatten the peak.

 

 Also I see a bulge in the middle tier.  Try using ganach instead or have your cake very cold when you cover it with fondant.  Can also be an air pocket from your filling, for this you need to weigh your cake down so get the air down.

 

Their are lots of great tutorials on all these subjects.  Keep up the good work, I think you did a great job over all, you should be proud.
