It was very unforgiving, and I kneaded the heck out of it. http://cakecentral.com/g/i/2944240/baby-shower/

Yeah, that works, thanks Jason icon_confused.gif

 

I figured I would put one up for review that is actually bad, since all the other ones are so darn good! I don't need my ego stroked, (right this second, give me time and I may put one of my fabulous ones up, lol! )

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

I am subscribed/immediately - even went back in and subscribed again - I'm getting about 1 in 5-7 posts from this thread.  I have to depend on others commenting first on a cake in order to get a notification.  Any thoughts?

I think it only sends a notification every little while, not on every single comment like it used to.  So if I make a post and 5 people post right after me in a short period of time, the system only sends one email.

OK Peeps!  We have a few cakes up for comment, so don't forget to review them upthread!  Also, I just found a spot in my settings about email frequency.  If you click on your own profile, you will see a "edit subscriptions" on the left side.  Click on that.  Toward the bottom of the screen it has 2 options:

 

 

Immediate Subscriptions Notifications

This setting controls how many email notifications we send you when a thread is updated and you have an "immediate" subscription.

Send one notification the first time the thread is updated, but no more until the next time I visit the site (default)
Send a notification every time there is an update. This can result in receiving multiple notifications for each subscription in between visits to the site.
 
I think it defaults to the top selection, so if you want to get a notification for every post, make sure you change it to "Send a notification every time.

I think I am all caught up! Thank you everyone for your review on my cake - I agree the picture is so blurry! I took the picture with my iphone and it looked clear..until I got it on the computer. So disappointing I wont be doing that again. And I agree more flowers on the board would make it better :)

 

I would love critique on this cake it was for my nephew and while everyone loved it - i do not. The board is waaaay to large and I do not like the grass but I didn't have enough fondant to cover the board and again the camera......

Also this cake was done for Easter dinner with the family. I feel like its is missing something.

Thanks everyone :)

I'm in!  I've always wanted to offer encouraging advice on some cakes but don't because I don't want to give it unsolicited!

I'm such a wimp.  I critique all my cakes so awfully that I know at least 20 things to do different next time.  Hearing my peers saying them to me is just too much to bare!

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

for real

 

i bake/create to ring the client's bell -- in a good way ring their bell

 

but if you want to feel comforted in your human-ness...pickup almost any published cake book and start ticking off the booboos

 

and besides there are definitely degrees between:

 

  1. homely as sin but 'a' for effort
  2. loving hands at home
  3. hand crafted and perfect are both a 3 imo
  4. take your breath away omg dingding ding ding ding we have a winner!

 

i like to hit about a 3.5 on a sunny day with a tailwind--

 

i'm usually in the 2.9 to 3.1 range give or take i think --

 

i'm comfortable with where i am in this regard--i hit the heights sometimes

 

but check out the books to find cakes/cakers who are far from perfect decor wise but are 4+ all the way ;)

I'm loving this! I was getting bored with CC and this has made it fun again. I do have a suggestion, though...

 

Could we all be sure to preface our comments with something that indicates it's from the cake club ? I'd hate to see a misinterpretation and have people start offering all kinds of unsolicited critiques icon_cry.gif.

 

Thanks! icon_smile.gif
