looks great, especially the crust. is that just a bump map on it?

I think the tiles should be a little shinier, it would look nice with a little of the cake reflected in the tiles.

I dare you to do one alike and share the outcome Deus, and no I'm not talking on doing a sliced cut extruded circle, I'm talking on doing something that captures the little pieces of detail that go unnoticed present in this very same picture, it should be a lot easy thing to do, I bet it wont take you any time at all...

Thanks for the comments pixie and everyone else. Yes Deus, it's quite a simple model, but right now I'm just trying to learn texturing. Once I'm finished, I'll be happy to share the final .blend and textures to help out beginners like me. :)

crojack, I'm using a displacement map to get the grainy look on the inside of the slice. The bump map wasn't exaggerated enough. And I agree, the tiles should be shinier.

As for the size of the tiles, the final scene will have the cake on a stand instead of on the floor with the yetis. I'll revisit the tile size once I get everything else in place in the scene. I'll post an update tomorrow. I'm still figuring a lot of stuff out, so progress is slow. :)

So I'm guessing you went/go to MSU? I'm from MS myself, a lot farther south though.

what's after this, some key lime and a mint julep :D

I'm originally from Hattiesburg, but went to school at MSU. I just finished my master's this summer and will be working here at MSU as a research associate for about a year. I love having spare time on my hands, something I haven't had in a while. :)

This is looking really good! A couple of crits though:

1) I would give the plate or pie dish a bit more thickness
2) the file mat, while looking very good on its own, really distracts you from the subject.

Both things are just a matter of taste though - the modeling and textures look great!

Thanks for the crits Phr0st, I agree with each.

Small update. Made the strawberries non-uniform, but they still look a little funky to me. Made the dripping chocolate syrup look a little better. Made the plate a little thicker, although probably not enough. I zoomed in on the cake so the tiles didn't distract as much.

Now that I'm more or less finished with the cake, I need to start building the scene around it...
