Trying a more simple, elegant design this time. Is it too simple? I'm always hesitant when it comes to white backgrounds. Not sure if it'll make enough of an impression on people.

I love this. I think that the white background has a fresh, clean feeling that really works with this design.

I think it is pleasantly simple. The white works well with the colors and the illustration is simple in a good exact way. It is warm and cute. I still maybe understand some of your hesitation. I'm not sure if i'm right, but Caviar dreams font sometimes seems to me a little "naked" when it's big. So the "the" you put there breaks it well and also in the names it looks very nice. So naked, or pointy or maybe that it stretches high like the cake? something in there bothers me. I think it worth the try to try more fonts and see how it works.

Not too simple at all! I think it has great balance, and it's definitely eye-catching. Maybe add a slight stroke to the date? The spacing on the numbers of the date also feels like it could tighten up a little bit.

Nice, this is great simple! I'm loving everything about the cake but agree with Jessica that the date feels like it needs tightening as well as putting a stroke on the names. I'd like to see them have the same sort of color "density" as the cake base, if that makes sense.

Katie, I love this! Maybe just a tad more weight to the names? Fantastic!
