    Looks great!! The shape is right on, and I like the feet! I bet once you cover the board w sand and cacti, it'll be even better. It's hard to make a cake look nice when the subject is unattractive by its very nature. You sort of animated it, which softened an otherwise ghastly form.

    The only thing I might have added is more color, or at least deeper color. Overall, it's great, especially for your first sculpted cake!!! Bravo!
