Here is my latest I realized after JW told me the flower petals are lined up.

Also the ruffles dry hard and I'm just thinking is that just how designs like this are supposed to be? You serve a cake that has dry fondant that cracks and people at that point have to pick it off? I mean I know with smooth fondant it doesn't dry so fast because of the BC but these kind of designs are thin and in the wind. Do you put another layer of fondant underneath?

Hi guys, its been awhile. I'm still adjusting to having a little one around while working on a cake. It makes for a very tired mom/baker. Anyway, here's my first Icing Smiles cake. Despite the numerous amount of flaws, the young lady simply adored it, so that made me love it. TIA!

Can we post figures to this?  She's not on a cake, since she was just practice.  This was my first go at figure modeling.  I'm really pleased with how she turned out, but could definitely use some feedback as I know there are things to improve on.

Ok Pros...my daughter's wedding is over!!!!!!!!!!! Everything was beautiful and she loved it...was posted on Facebook within a matter of minutes. I did the bride's bouquet, the girls bouquets, mother's corsages, all centerpieces, blinged the flower girls's shoes, etc. Oh, and I was the wedding planner!! Unfortunately, I couldn't do the original design as planned, my avatar, because of skill level and time constraints. It was my first time workkng with ganache. I did a practice cake with ganache and a lot of tester cakes. I did do the decorations ahead of time and they were ready to go. Here is where I ran into problems: I knew that I was going to have a storage issue as I ony have a standard fridge, so I decided to freeze the ganached-covered cakes, alternatively. Some where in the freezer, some were in the fridge. I thawed at room temp. and covered with mmf..some with slight condensation underneath. The 6 in was perfectly ganached, perfect straight sides and everything (moist rvc..took mr forever though). Put this in freezer..took it out to thaw and ganache got soft....like fudge..covered 1/8 mmf..back in freezer..worried..took it out, it thawed and got really sticky..frustrated, I covered it with a thicker layer of fondant, which imo, worked ok since the original layer melted down from the cold thawing. I had covered the 16 in earlier with ganache and fondant the night before...woke up to an air bubble ths size of my head!!.omg!! Ripped that off, re-ganached, re-fondanted. By now, I do not feel like the intricate work of the other cake, so l decided to KISS. Sorry if I sound scrambled. Please critique me! Ask me what I have probably left out!! Hobby baker only..

If you upload it into your CC gallery, and then link to that, people can critique it for you a lot easier :)
