This cake didn't turn out exactly as I had in mind...I know my "petals" aren't right because I cut them too thick and was unable to get them to ruffle right, but I went with it anyways just to see how it would look. This was just for practice and was not made for a customer...That being said I'd like to know what everyone thinks of it...It's odd looking I know. I can't decide if I like it or not! LOL

Well, is it supposed to be something specific? Are you trying to do one of those exploding rose things that's all the rage now? 

 

Honestly, I see a really creative interesting cake that really has nothing to critique, *unless* you tell me it's supposed to be something very specific that I'm not seeing....then I guess there's something to work with.

Hello Ducky, the design is a little strange to me, I don't really see an organic flow.  Maybe if the circles were a lot thinner, more uniform in thickness and you chose a different shade of orange?

The cake is not unattractive at all, but it leaves me scratching my head, wondering "Do I like it or not?" That's the weird thing: I don't know!

I think the disc shapes work the best. But to me it seems like it's missing something. An accent color maybe? I think it has sort of an ocean vibe.

My honest opinion, not a fan.  If I didn't see your explanation I wonder...what is it?  Doesn't look like a flower really.  Just looks odd to me.

Just a suggestion, after looking at it again. Cluster stuff like that. What I mean is, make two defined areas of whatever that is you made (which is cool). But arrange them opposite each other, and make one smaller. Have a couple of pieces trail off from each one, so it flows better. Let that border show a little more too, cause that's visually interesting, and it's hidden by your giant explosion of petals/whatever those are. And when I say 'whatever those are', it's not meant dismissively, it's meant as I don't know what they are. Hope that makes sense. Either way, it's your baby and no one else has to understand it. Right?

If this had been created by Colette then we'd be dying to copy it.  I can honestly say I've never seen anything quite like it.  Very modern and fabric-like.  If you could stick a few more petals inbetween the larger petals, I think you'd love it.  In other words, you need more smaller petals.  You're on the right track and your overall work is neat, just needs more smaller petals and less larger ones.

I think if it had been just the sides of the cakes, instead of on top of the first tier, and with a few less smaller petals and without the middle of the flower, I would like the look a lot more.

I do think it's kind of cool and beachy though, and I love the gold edging.

My 'just go with it cakes' would never end up on here, haha. If they did, someone would definitely be forwarding them onto cake wrecks!

Just to clarify, I just meant less smaller petals because of the ones on top of the bottom tier, I like the ones on the sides of the cake!

Sorry, I don't care for it at all. However -- if this was your original design then you're doing a good job of thinking "outside of the box" and I'm sure you will come up with cakes that will wow us.
