Medal, those are lovely bright cakes!  If you post the link to your picture in your gallery, then we can put our comments for each individual cake there.

Ok so here is my fist Wedding Topper cake and first attempt at Gum paste Flower! Any feedback would be much appreciated !!! My *smooth fondant* on the cake needs a lot of improvement! Also I noticed I can see the buttercream I used to hold the petals together is quite noticeable.....?

I have been a frequent visitor of this site for a long time. I love this thread!! I'm a fully qualified chef but this will be my first tier cake. Mine will be different from the original I will have 3 tiers instead of 2. My daughters party isn't until the 2nd of Nov so I won't have a pic to post till then but I would greatly appreciate and advice/critique you can offer on my little owl

Edited to add: I have made the owl out of fondant only

Sounds awesome! I've only been doing cakes for a short while and I'm always looking for constructive feedback.

Charsbakedtreat I think your owl looks very cute! I really like the addition on the whites in the eyes. It gives it more character!

Petitefleur1, it's easier if you post your pictures in your gallery and then link them here. Your flower is beautiful. I'm not seeing the buttercream you mentioned?

I would like to join! Here are my three of my most recent cakes. Please let me know what you think.

 

Pokemon cake - figures made out of MMF, cake is a 6" cake ball chocolate/vanilla striped cake covered in MMF. Board and name prepped the day before with more fondant.

Monster High cakes - I made these for a twin girl's birthday. Buttercreme frosted with fondant pieces and fondant toppers. Boards are also fondant covered.

1969 Chevy Camaro topper - this is made out of pound cake. My first sculpted car piece. If you have any ideas on improvement I am all about it on this one!

Petitefleur1, I looked for your cake in your profile and didn't see it posted. So, I'll comment here. I, too, think the flower is beautiful. And I cannot see the BC you are mentioning. It looks well done and I love the dusting you did. Gumpaste is a lot of fun and I think you'll find almost everything you see you will want to re create in GP. I know that I do!

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles on it.

Never fear shadows. They simply mean there's a light shining somewhere nearby.

Here is the cake I made last night for a church Fall festival. While I love the cake board, I am not thrilled with the actual design. I wanted a random look, but in retrospect, should have planned it out.

 

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Ok, here's another one up for review. TFL and TIA for any and all critiques. I'm mad at myself for running out of my favorite fondant and having to mix what was left with another one. I didn't like the results. The back up fondant gave me less time to work with it and it made my go-to fondant have elephant skin and cracks. Oh well, lesson learned, always have more of the good stuff on hand for your own cakes. The decoration and cake flavors were received well at the Christening, however, we cakers no were the flaws lie.

Hi everyone, 

 

I must say the cakes I have seen on here are absolutely amazing!!!!!  I would like to share with you my cauldron cake made for my mum in laws birthday tomorrow.  I am a VERY novice baker and would love some advice on how i could of done it better.  I did have a few problems with this one today tho, I made the cakes yesterday wrapped and left them for till today then slightly carved the top layer to make it a bit more rounded but when I went to put a crumb coat on it stated crumbling!!!!   So I chucked it in the freezer for a bit and that seemed to do the trick lol   

 

I couldn't get hold of a thick cake board and ran out of purple sugarpaste to cover it lol   Oh and after sticking the cake to the board with some buttercream it is still moving around.....  and the black sugarpaste i've used is still quite sticky, is this normal???

 

Its all a learning curve and I'm sure mum in law will be delighted but i am happy to say that I seem to be getting a little better each time :-)

 

 

Looking forward to some great tips from you lovely lot :-)

I'm fairly new to cake making. I've been doing it for years in grandmas kitchen but only in the last year started my very small very slow business. This was a cake I did for a customer. It was my first attempt at a figure cake topper. It has an internal wire structure covered in rice crispy treats then in fondant. I couldn't believe how heavy it was. Any feedback is welcome. I find myself getting better with every cake and love learning from others. Thank you

Ps hopefully I did this right I'm also new to cakecentral
