Gio's Team Roping Birthday Cake

Gio's Team Roping Birthday Cake on Cake Central

Cake for a 13-year old team roping champion. Buttercream with fondant cut-outs which I drew on. Figured if I make a mistake, I can just start over.

Critique Subgroup member: Love your bas relief/painting/drawing composition! Your rope border is very well done and the whole cake is very well done piece of "Art"! I see a little bit of uneven top border edges, but heck overall, that is a minor detail! I wish the pix was bigger.

Critique Subgroup member: well done!! I love how you added a little piece of rope to the edge on the cake board- ties it all in. I wish the pic was a little bigger too, as I can tell you did a wonderful job with your painting. It looks awesome!

Critique group member: I agree that's it's a bit hard to see any details. However, I can see the cake colors compliment each other beautifully. I love the knot and birthday banner. One thing I would have liked to see is a bit of color instead of the white cake board ---maybe a very pale sky blue or very pale green? All in all, this is a work of art!

Critique Subgroup Member: Well, the picture is bigger now...and it looks great. I noticed the uneven border also. The background blue/green/white color gives a good depth feeling to the cake, as does the placement of the grass.

critique subgroup member: Awesome job! I love the rope border and the knot is the perfect touch. The green grass is a bit dark for me, but I am not a fan of darker colors. (just me)

Critique Group Member: Wow.. I just love the details you put into this cake. I see the uneven edge there in the front, but that really just melts into the overall look of the cake. I think a colored cake board would have made the cake pop a little more, but you did an AMAZING job with your hand painting and airbrushing. :)

Critique Group Member: Stunning job. Very creative design and perfect for the theme. You did a great job drawing on your cutouts - very artistic and very unique - I like this technique. The rope border is a great touch. Would agree the cake board is a little plain, maybe spruce it up a bit (e.g. wrap in twine to go with the theme); but no critiques on the cake itself.

Critique subgroup member: WOW!!! 8O I love the rope first off, I love the color of the grass and how that is so 3D onthe cake. Wonderful drawings. The airbrushing is fabulous. The only thing I can critique is the top edge of the cake is a bit uneven but that is so minimal compared to the rest of this masterpiece!!!

critique group member. This is fantastic! All the detail is great.I really like the rope border. I am not sure about the banner- maybe a different color for the writing to make it pop a bit more.
