You should try a wasc cake sometime. You can find the recipe at www.cakecentral.com I love that site. The wasc cakes are my favorite.

Quoting sdgd21:

I feel the same, But you are much better than me! lol3

My family says that I make great tasting cakes.. lol

Quoting IQuitCounting:

Honestly, they're cute.  If it's just for fun, for family and friends, then keep on keeping on.  If you're asking for an opinion from a consumer standpoint;  I'd be thrilled with a gift of a cake like yours, even pay for the materials, but I wouldn't pay from a consumer standpoint :)

I'm sure they do. Most home made cakes taste wonderful. It's your decorating that needs a little work. 

Quoting AnAngelsKiss:

My best friend and I are going to take the wilton cake decorating class as soon as I can afford the $50 + supply kits. Baking is no problem with me. My baking tastes better then grocery store bought.

Quoting countrymomma81:

I wouldn't pay for them. 

We pay a lot of money for our kids birthday cakes ($100 on up) and I am very specific about what I want. We watch all the cake and cupcake shows on tv and I know what's possible and what's not. 

Keep trying though, you will get it with time. I plan on taking cake decorating classes once we get our oven repaired.

As a consumer I probably wouldn't pay for these but they are cute cakes and I am sure very tasty. Keep it up as others have said practice makes perfect. Have you considered taking a cake decorating class?

I don't think you suck. I definitely couldn't have done any of those. Now I want cake.
