TARDIS cupcake comparison by thesearejessicakes TARDIS cupcake comparison by thesearejessicakes
Last year I made TARDIS cupcakes. The internet loved them. This year, I decided to remake them to see how much my cake skills have improved over the last 12 months.

What are your thoughts? While the TARDIS's on this years cakes are so much better, I personally prefer the overall LOOK of the old ones. I overfilled the cupcakes and didn't hide enough of the cake with buttercream this time round, and it doesn't look as vortex-y.

Please do not repost them without linking back to my DeviantART, Tumblr, or Facebook. Thank you!

I'd love it if you could take the time to write a critique - focusing on both the cake itself AND how I've presented it to dA through the photographs. I'm pretty shabby with food photography, and it's an area I'd love to focus on more in the future. It doesn't matter if you don't have a Premium Membership - Anyone can /write/ a critique now!

Thank you very much! <3 

I personally prefer the buttercream on the first ones; but the TARDIS' on the second one.

The originals were good, but the new ones are even better. I think what helps is that the frosting isn't so flat which makes the TARDIS look like it is floating more! :-)

Aaalright *cracks knuckles*
Overall I like the new cupcakes better (cupcake- and presentation-wise). While yes, you overfilled the newer version and didn't use enough buttercream, they still look better than the old version. The buttercream looks much nicer in the new version and if you'd used some more to cover up the cake they'd have beaten the old version even more easily and probably looked more vortex-y at the same time. Also, the colour(s) of the buttercream seem more intense on the newer version than on the older one, which I prefer.
When it comes to the pictures themselves, I like the angle on the new pictures better and that it is lighter than the old version (:
I feel like the old version can't really compare to the new version, although both are cool. The new version is just cooler~

Thank you so much! You've pretty much got the same feeling as I with the whole buttercream/overfilled cake issue (though the reason I /didn't/ use extra frosting was because of the overfilling; it would have overwhelmed the top of the cake, if that makes sense.)

But yes. Thank you. I really appreciate the time you spent writing this comment! <3

Ah yes, that makes sense then. You can tell, I'm not really the baking-type even though I love cake, cupcakes, everything sweet, really (:
And no problem, your fanart/fandom cakes and cupcakes are really cool. I didn't even know people made things like these~

Even if you're not, you definitely seem to have the creative eye to do awesome cake things if you decided you wanted to. :D

Thank you. ^_^ There's not many of us, unfortunately. (If you've not heard of them, go check out Nerdache Cakes on facebook or tumblr. She's the Queen of Nerd Cakes.)
