Congratulations on the blue, a new personal best, and an average of just under 8! You have started with an excellent still life (with hand) and you have done an excellent job in mocking up an excellent Bon Appetit cover. Nicely done.

I thought I was looking at a "real" magazine cover! Did you do this for a living at some point? Was going to be Blue from the beginning. Congrats Mary Ann!

"Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and the generous score. This was a lot of fun to put together."

...and no doubt eating the cake afterwards was part of the fun. What a perfect image for this challenge, right down to the small details like the mottled background and the stylized script. Worthy of the blue in every way.

Wow! Look at the number of comments during voting --

Look at the histogram! Only ONE vote that was a 5 or less!!

It was a 9 from me -- truly spectacular creation! (and why didn't you share the cake with us??)

Wow!!!! Look at that score. I had a feeling it would be a very high scoring photo.

Congratulations and you should seriously look at submitting this as a future front cover for some food magazine :-)

Gorgeously done!

Front page stuff for sure. This really looks like a front page from the magazine. Well done. If I had ANY nit it would be the overly red/saturated hand.

Splendid. Even the fonts are perfect.
