Overall, this is an astounding piece of work. The colors are eye-catching and the figurines are well constructed. In step with the theme, you did wonderfully on choosing buttons and thread for the topper as well as the threads for the bottom trims. It's a great tribute to a film when the cake inspires its music to filter into the viewer's mind; all the while bringing a smile to the lips.

The only reason why I did not give this a completely perfect score is because I felt the bottom tier was missing something in terms of balance. There is so much light and movement in the top half of the cake, that perhaps a texture (stars or light stitching) would have tied them together. I'm guilty of this myself in a lot of my work. But that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the more brilliant cakes I've seen to date. Very well done.

That's ironic. I'm having my sweet 16, today, and it's Coraline-themed (cause I love that movie like there's no tomorrow). I just wish I had a cake this amazing... great job.
