Here's my newest cake.  A birthday cake for a Halloween birthday party.  I'm very pleased with how it turned out, but could always use improvement.  I know I should have done more with the cake board, I just really didn't know where to go with it.

This is a mustache cake I did for my babys 2nd birthday ugh how time flys!! I had some technical issues with this cake but not completely unhappy with it. He loved it and I always like to try out new things when I'm doing family cakes. Stripes are not my friends....yet. Any feedback appreciated and hope you all have a great day!

Is the top a printed sheet? I like it. Looks like it turned out pretty well. I like the tutorials I see where you lay your fondant stripes out on wax paper the size of the cake then lift and press it on to keep them straight and even,.

I hope the link works I using my phone

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

I love the owls! It came out  great!

No it was not a printable sheet. I just rolled out some fondant thin and let it set up before I wrote on it. I'll have to try the wax paper for the stripes next time. I did use that technique once before when I wrapped just the sides of the cake but I felt like I needed about 10 more hands to keep everything where I wanted it lol.

This is a little unnerving! First time posting for review... !

 

This cake was a lot of firsts for me... first time trying the ruffles and rosettes like this. I only found my rhythm and pattern about a 1/4 way in so in hindsight I could see a lot going better next time. For the top tier, the fondant was way too soft in the heat of the day and was ruined, I pulled it off and decided to go with the buttercream. First time I tried some "stringwork piping". It was a disaster that, the RI kept breaking, some kept and held up but I need to work on my consistency, I can never get it right.

Also, I think the board I used was too big, at the time it seemed like it would work but looking at the pic, maybe 2 inches smaller would be better.

Okay then Go ahead... be gentle please! (But tell me the truth! :D I can handle it. I. Think. :lol: )

 

p.s. I'm a hobby baker. This was a gift to my friend for her baby's christening.

Any flower makers out there? This was my first attempt at a flower with wires. It's fashioned after a red poppy but was not intended to be lifelike. I chose not to dust it because the only dusting powder I have is wilton and the color range just wasn't right plus it's going on a red and pink cake so I didn't want it too dark. I'm not sure if this looks like it's put together right. I had issues attaching the peddeks due to the curvatures in them at the bottom. Any feedback is greatly appreciated

Here is one that I would love to have critiqued. It is the first tree stump cake I have made...I really value your opinions, thanks

I was happy with it, but I know it could be better.

I am in. Here is my first one. This is one of my favorite cakes, though I know there is a lot of room for improvement.  This is the first time I had ever made anything out of gumpaste, it was about 8 -9 months ago. So much fun! http://cakecentral.com/g/i/3144676/a/3428075/-/sort/display_order/

I'm a bit nervous in submitting a cake for review, but I would like to improve so here goes ...

LL

I'm a hobbyist baker and I've been decorating cakes since August. This was a cake of firsts for me ... First multi-tier cake, first double barrel cake, and first ombré cake!

This cake was for my uncle's surprise 70th birthday party on Friday night. (For 100 people). It was my contribution to the party (everyone from our family pitched in to cook food or buy decorations). The colour theme of the party was black, white, and gold. The inspiration was my uncles favorite brand of whiskey. I photoshopped the label to include hugs name, "aged 70 years," and happy birthday. I had wanted to do a white or gold onlay or piping over the middle tier but I ran out if time (I had no idea what a time intensive undertaking a cake like this is!). I also wanted to put a white ribbon around the cake board, and skinny black ribbon around the base of the tiers, but somehow the ribbon that I bought went missing. Even though it's a ruffle cake, I didn't want it to be too ruffled as I thought that would look too feminine so I opted for straighter ruffles than are usually done.

The specs:
Bottom tier: 10" double barrel, alternating layers of chocolate fudge cake & devils food cake, SMBC, milk chocolate Lindt ganache
Middle tier: 8", white chocolate mud cake, SMBC, milk chocolate Lindt ganache
Top tier: 6" double barrel, alternating layers of chocolate fudge cake & devils food cake, SMBC, milk chocolate Lindt ganache

Thanks for taking the time to look and I welcome feedback icon_smile.gif
