    Hi Utopia,

    These are quite good, as we've come to expect from you.

    I think you've got the focus point about right, the interest, perhaps gruesomely, is on the 'point of dismemberment' and the texture within, rather than the surface or facial features.

    Other thoughts;
    A bit more DoF might have been useful - there's no EXIF data provided, or in images, so I don't know what you used.
    On the first, a clone extension of the white background into the top right corner would have helped a little.
    I am undecided whether the WB should be on the background, the icing or the plate, you seem to have it on the background, which I'm not sure is best for the scene, however, it is one of those things I'd have to try the alternatives and take a view on which is best, choosing one of the others may make the lighting sheen on surface coloured and that wouldn't look right.
    Both the compositions are fine.

    Hope that helps,
