Thank you for your gracious votes and the lovely comments!

I had some concerns regarding the title. Does it sound weird for English speakers?
It is the literal translation of a German pet name for a young girl "Zuckerschnecke" (which is actually used for a tasty rolled up pastry, something you would call a roll)

But sugar roll did make even less sense than sugar snail...

I think it's the "washed out" look that hurt your score.

It's a great image.


Thank you all for your lovely comments
Yes, Lydia, I did overexpose on purpose, I thought it fitted the sweet look and took emphasis away from the girl.
Because that was my main concern: that voters would stick strictly to the word "candy" and not accept a model in the shot.

However - I'm happy with this result.
And my "Zuckerschnecke" likes it too
