I guess the drop on the end is supposed to be the fork drooling? Reminds me more of a teardrop though at first glance. But I'm hungry now either way. Mmmmmm, cake!

The drop of 'saliva' is a clever touch.

interesting idea and very well shot, not sure if the intent really comes through without the title. in the end the water droplet (drool) on the fork just ends up looking out of place because the fork doesn't have enough characteristics of a face/mouth/person/etc.

Without the title I don't get the connection to the challenge. Sorry...not really sold on this one.

Without the title, there would be nothing here to indicate personification. I understand the drop is supposed to represent mouth-watering, but I wouldn't get that without the title. The image is decent, but DNMC IMO.
