......Well, I think the buttercream could be a lot smoother, kind of ragged around the edges also. The ribbon looks baggy and wavy. And the scrolls are downright.....awkward? I would have used a pattern press or practiced a lot and looked at other scrolls before doing that cake....I would have been very disappointed.
I don't post often but I have to say that there is nothing "humble" about your response to the OP's post. Yes, she asked for a critique, BUT did you really have to make the BUT 4 times larger to emphasize your point? If you think the OP needs to improve her skills, fine, she did ask for opinions. It's just MY humble opinion that there are appropriate ways to give constructive criticism and your way is not one of them.
The "but" was actually supposed to be smaller than the rest of the text. I didn't preview. Yeah, it does look bad, and this is the first time I saw it.
