For your first try that is a great job. My first try at figures was NOT great. At all!! haha. Pooh's face should have been a bit rounder. Piglets eyes are a little too big. In the cartoon, his nose is bigger than his eyes and your figure is the opposite. Hope that helps! :)

Great try, I have a hard time with the faces on my figures.  If his face is made of gumpaste or fondant, make the basic shape and allow it to dry some before painting and adding features.  It was sagging because the warmth from our hands make it soft.  Your letters are a bit large for the cake, I would have made them smaller.

 

But overall a nice cake, I'll bet the recipient didn't even notice and just loved it.  Give yourself a pat on the back.
