Emotes are so fun to torture . That they are <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/>

Ok. Let's move on now.

So, I love this emote. It's amazing. Just so you know.

First off, I like the way you shaded the emote. The cake also has a very simple design too, with a bunch of lil candles <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":meow:" title="Meow :3"/>

The animation is so smooth. It's incredible. The cake stretches when it bounces, which adds an excellent effect. The expression on the emote (pardon the cliche) is priceless. And besides, the idea overall is very original; many a cake trap has been set <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD"/> I also love all the little details that you put into it too, such as the cake blinking, and it licking it's lips after it's eaten the emote.

I have a few suggestions.

One, get rid of the arms on the emote. They just kind of pointlessly sitting there, and take away from the screaming effect.

Two, make the tongue come out just a lil quicker. Just a little bit.

Three, when the cake is hopping along, it doesn't hit the ground <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" title=":P (Lick)"/>

But I love this emote. The animation is smooth, the idea is clever, and the cake is still a lie. <img src="…" width="20" height="20" alt=":clap:" title="Clap"/> Great work.

Thanks for the critique!
The cake actually does hit the ground, but it's only 1 frame, so it's hard for the untrained eye to see. Agree about the tongue, but the hands help portray the turning effect, and he looks weird without hands :>

Ah, Ok.

It was late at night and I was being picky :P

Maybe they should shake a little then, cuz they just look weird without moving and him screaming. :lol:

Instead of you eating the cake, the cake eats you X3 because it's a lie
And it's cute how the cake licks its lips after eating :3

i could do this all day!! :iconcakeplx: :iconcakeplx: "stay back!!! No!!! NOT THE FACE!!!!!"

oh what cruel irony!!! XD

"a little emote saw a cake, in a bakery window,

he went in to buy the cake for his birthday,

he brought home the cake and set it on his countertop,

but he faced a great dilema, as his birthday

was not until tomorrow! so he left the cake alone, but could not wait, 

he went downstairs to find a horrible sight!!!!

the cake monster wanted revenge for the stolen brother!!!!

 the next day the emotes family came, frolicking with happy glee,

to their cousins front door, yet when they entered, 

they found a single slice.... of the poor little emote".

Hmmm... I JUST realized there were eyes on the cake and it's licking its lips.
I'd say, great detail, I can see the work in this!
