You don't give any narrative as to what this is intended for, but I see that you classify your level as Semi Pro, so I assume that this is for a café's display or advertising? It's very inviting (first thought - yes please!), but I would suggest cropping the sides, the lighter bits and those green patches are a distraction.
A lot of the cake is quite soft, I'd like to see greater depth of field - food imagery like this really needs to be tactile, tasteable. As though I could reach out and pick up a bit.

This has to be an advertising shot for a cafe? Actually, not sure the brownies look that appetising. Possibly a bit too close.

Yes, I do fancy a brownie.
Do a mod which addresses Moira's point, also brightened and sharpened a little.
The bits of white would be off putting to the brownie eater.
Main issue is the layout of the cakes, you could try a layout on a plate showing pieces. The effect here is a pile of brown which is difficult to make out just what they area.
Still a tempting image,regards

Just one further thought - along with a lot of older people I often have difficulty in reading white script against a coloured background, it's a problem that seems to increase with age. The lettering isn't as difficult to read as is sometimes the case, but it has a cramped feel, a broader font would be easier to read.
