Yes, it definitely needs more light - preferably backlighting - with strong fill light from the front to accentuate the textures and colours.

Thanks Kevin, apologies for being overzealous! Feedback much appreciated.
Robyn, PhotoCritic loves your enthusiasm! You uploaded 6 images this week, but unfortunately as per the guidlines, we are only going to allow and critique one of them.
I have chosen this one to comment on because I absolutely love the colours and textures of this image. The reds and blues work very well together and I like the setting and background choices.
I do however feel that the image, the subject in particular, as a little under exposed and a little more depth of field to bring more of the subject into sharper focus would help too. With a tripod, you could have bumped the aperture to about f/8 or so and set the shutter to about 1/80th to get some more detail on the front of the cake. In post processing you can easily bring up the exposure a little to compensate.
