I've been making cakes and stuff for about a year-ish maybe two and I don't practice. I haven't made many and there is so much more I want to try but as of now I just make whatever people ask me to make.  So what do you think of what I've made? I've never taken a class or anything like that, I'm 19 and 100% self taught. Whatever I know is from books, magazines and youtube.  Here is my facebook page!  -> http://www.facebook.com/AmhCreations?fref=ts :).

I don't have a facebook (shocking - I know).  Can you post a link to a different website? Or upload some pictures on CC?

I think your cakes are ok. However, if I am correct (and if I'm not, someone please correct me!!), I think you're violating copyright law. Especially with the Hello Kitty, Dora, Yo Gabba Gabba, and Playboy cakes. Be careful. Personally, I like icing that is more smooth than that, but overall, they're not too bad! Practice, practice, practice!!!

Also, I'm not very good at honest opinions. I don't want to hurt anyone's feelings.

It's pretty far. I'm in Arizona, Kinda between Phoenix and Tucson. So a trip like that wouldn't be possible at the moment unfortunately

I agree... practice getting the icing smooth so it doesn't appear to be a cloth-wrapped mummy.

 

Also, presentation is everything... avoid using silver aluminum foil on presentation boards, if you want a more professional look.

if you want the smooth look you can use a viva paper towel for crusting buttercream

 

you can use your nice warm clean hand to smooth chilled smbc

you'd get it as smooth as you can with a spatula then chill then smooth

 

you can get wilton fda approved foil for your cake boards if you want

A hot bench scraper would be more appropriate and sanitary for smoothing SMBC.

Uhm I didn't know if you knew or not. Also, I believe it is still infringement if you give them away. Whether you make nothing at all or a million dollars, it's the same. Just like if you use Wilton character pans, they are for home use only. Not to make a cake and sell it or give it away.
