My first ever royal iced cake

This isn't really my kind of cake, I'm not really into making replicas of real things. 
I made this for one of my Dad's oldest friends, he's 80 and still working almost full time as a painter/decorator. Apparently he thought it was an actual tin of paint, which is cool - I wasn't so forgiving of its faults! It was my first time attempting to royal ice a cake as opposed to sugarpasting, I wanted straight, high, smooth sides and it didn't turn out too badly. You know how when it's your work all you see is little imperfections? This cake is one of those for me. Anyway, here it is in all it's not perfect glory!
