I made some more cakes last month, I was planning to sell them when my store opens... but they're now all gone :XD: Some friends got them. Now I have to make more cakes to sell, so you'll be seeing a lot of cakes in the following weeks.

Chocolate & vanilla cakes with a creamy frosting. The one on the left has milk chocolate shavings, the one on the right has almonds.

I love almonds :D but my almond cane was barely ok, I have to work a bit more on my canes.

These little wood plates were part of the prize I received from ~KatGore. She's awesome! Her clay work is stunning and she's also really sweet, please give her some love :heart:

Comments and suggestions are always much appreciated :blowkiss:

:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Overall
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Vision
:star::star::star::star-empty::star-empty: Originality
:star::star::star::star::star-empty: Technique
:star::star::star::star::star: Impact

Lets get started with vision: this 2 slices look highly realistic, shape and color were executed very well to achieve this result.
More about the colors; the tones are correctly chosen to emmulate vanilla and chocolate, same with the icing.
Technique: there's a lot of detail to make it look spongy and like a real fresh cake might look like at a bakery shop.
Impact: it tricked me at first sight! I thought i was looking at 2 slices of real cake!

One tiny detail i'd critique (in the best way of course); food is not perfect, so in order to make it look more real, it should have small imperfections here and there, and not so so perfect <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>
This is my honest appreciation about this piece, hope it helps you!!

hello :D may i ask how did you make the chocolate shavings? thank you :)
Talty's avatar
I made them the same way you would do chocolate shavings... I took a piece of hardened clay and shaved it with my blade :)

How did you do the chocolate shavings?
Talty's avatar
I baked a small amount of brown clay and I used my blade to "shave it". Just cut really thin slices :D

Oh, okay! Thanks! I just did that with frozen clay and it worked very nicely. :meow:
