CHALLENGE: The United Cakedom

There was probably some kind of notable wedding recently, who knows. Just in case there was, we should bake some cakes to celebrate, well, actually, how about we pixel some cakes instead?

You can pixel any kind of cake - it doesn't necessarily have to be a wedding cake. Any kind of cake that can fit into a 72 x 72 canvas is fine. It can be a full cake, a slice of cake, a cupcake - up to you. It would be a good idea to tell us what cake you're making in your description, a recipe would be nice too :o

Just so we're clear, no backgrounds; just the cake on its own, served on a transparent background.

For some cake ideas, check here; also, here's a whole bunch of delicious examples from the gallery from emlan.

Canvas size- Max 72 x 72.
Colours- Max 12.
Transparency- Required.
Animation- Optional.

This is my WIP, I think I might crank out a few, as this came together pretty quick..  My fav.  Carrot cake.

Ag182:  Not sure what the blue thing in center of piece is.  Ring?

I just got in a fight with transparency and I think I may have won, but I'm not sure. The color I set to be transparent was not fuschia, though.
Fuschia makes my wip look even worse than it already is. 
 
If this isn't acceptable as a cake I may have to consider forgoing this week's challenge.  It's basically a frosting covered cake with a few marzipan leaves stuck on.  If an elaborate wedding cake is acceptable, I don't see why this wouldn't be.

If I say I have an idea and that I plan on entering something, are people going to start placing bets if it happens or not?

Been a guest lurker / wannabe pixel artist for a million years; this is the first thing I've submitted here, or ever, really.

It's a melktert (milk tart). Still WIP, and I need to drop a colour. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I know it's not really much to go on, but I'm sure there are a million technical things I'm getting wrong.

@Ruski, try to work on your palette a bit. The yellow ramp is especially weak in that it has very little contrast and all reads as one color. Experiment with the colors. Watch the outer edges this needs to be on a trans BG and you have some ugly jaggies there. Look at God_Is_Evil, AG182  and Biffo's above and notice the color ramps have enough contrast to help define the cake.

@God_Is_Evil...nice

I've finally figured out transparency.
Edit:  Arrrrggghhh!/Fffffffuuuuuuu! Why does it hate me?! TAT  It looked okay in the preview just a minute ago, so why is it jacked up now?

Did you submit it? I don't see it in your gallery :( If you only posted it in this thread, then unfortunately it won't be in the challenge. You must submit it to the gallery and then check the Weekly Challenge box for it to be included.
