This piece has stuck with me since I first saw it in the queue last month. Something about the concept is really pleasing, and it's very nicely rendered–especially the cream.
The slight backlight is indeed very nice and the exact choice of colour there really sells the way that chocolate reflects light. Nice work!
Really loving the slight contrast in texture implied by the backlight on the shell vs the body!
I want this as my next birthday cake.
Pretty sweet job!
