Your honesty will be appreciated


I just finished baby Minnie mouse.
Her bow is drying and I still have to paint her dress.
 I really, really need to know what do you think. I promise I won't be upset if your feedback tells me that Minnie doesn't look like Minnie, I rather you telling me than my client or my worst fear..CAKE WRECKS.
 If you feel more comfortable you can leave an anonymous comment, just be gentle.
This is for a very important client and I have to make sure everything is almost perfect.
Thank you so much!

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for your honesty and your lovely comments.
Regarding a few questions from you: 
-The Minnie is going to be a cake topper, she is not made out of cake.
 -She is 7 inches tall.
-I made it using rice crispy treats and gumpaste.
-I agree about making the #2 in a different color, but my client wanted the number in white.
-I totally agree with the pointy nose, I tried to fix it but it didn't work, I decided to leave like that before making a terrible mistake.

The minute I saw the little thumbnail photo on my dashboard I KNEW exactly who it was! Of COURSE it's baby Minnie mouse! Amazing!

ButterYum said...

Adorable. I can't imagine any of your cakes making it onto cake wrecks!

I'd say your Minnie has a "old fashioned" look. Meaning the face is similar to the original Mickey Mouse (pointed nose) more than the modern nose (curved up).

I can't wait to see the finished cake.

Very well done, at my first glimpse: you got my WOW, great, and well done!!!
Reading at your post, I had a second look at Minnie, and like ButterYum commented, Minnie today's expression has been refreshed. For the rest, her body, dress, colors is Minnie.
If I were your client, I would be a very satisfied customer.
Great job!

Grimmy said...

Annemarie said...

Beautiful and tempting! You are very talented and I love all your cakes, they look amazing!
Anout this one ... I have to agree with ButterYum and say that maybe the nose is a little pointed, but it's definately Minnie. Great job!

Espectacular¡¡¡¡

It's fab, particularly love the folds of the sleeves and the bow. I made a baby Goofy recently and in my opinion they do have pointy-er faces than their grown-up counterparts...love it! x

Natalie said...

It's AMAZING!

Jenniffer said...

Kathia, you did an EXCELLENT job! It looks great! I think your client will be amazed!

are you serious? this is so great!!!!!
I love the sleeves, they are perfect.
Awesome job....she's a small cake..right?

Missy said...

I think she looks great, the only thing I would have done differently is made the 2 a different color, like maybe light blue or purple, to make it stand out more, but you did a great job!

Hannah said...

So amazing! Way cute!

I loved your comment on my blog yesterday. What a sweet girl you have!

Barbara Bakes said...

I am so impressed. It looks fabulous. The little girl is just going to ignore her presents and want to play with the cake.

Maranda said...

I know this is late but I wanted to say how amazing I think Minnie and you are! This is awesome and I hope your client likes it!

Red30 said...

I am no where near an expert on making gumpaste or fondant anything, but she looks pretty darn good to me!!

cakelava said...

Minnie is very cute! She has a sweet expression on her face. It can be difficult to do such an iconic character but you did a great job!

Molly said...

This looks great - your client will be thrilled!

Susan said...

She's great, Kathia. Very sweet. Definitely not cakewrecks worthy! Well, maybe on the days when they post winning cakes! Hugs to you!

jackie fo said...

honestly (and i am a very blunt person) I think it's SO great! It is clearly Minnie Mouse - no one would think otherwise. Think about it from someone else's standpoint who is not a baking/cake expert like yourself. They will think it's amazing because they can't do anything remotely like it! So they will be super impressed

faithy, the baker said...

Honestly, i think this look awesome! I can't see anything wrong with it! Very impressive!

I love it! I agree about the pointy nose, but honestly, the whole thing looks so flawlessly done.
I just found your blog and I'm so happy I did! Your cake creations are SO well done. Thanks for the inspiration :)

Kim @ Frost Me! said...
