Wow.... another tough call icon_confused.gif Both captured the theme, and did a beautiful job... The geraniums are gorgeous on the first one, and the box is very authentic looking. The second one is so delicate and feminine with soft touches, and executed with precision... oh my, such wonderful work... congratulations ladies on a job well done.... thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Wow- I wish I had the talent of either one of you. I only picked #1 for color, and theme. But only by a smigin'. icon_smile.gif What can you say? Beautiful! Thanks for posting!

Both are beautiful cakes. The second looks very feminine and formal in style and beautifully done and could easily be a wedding cake with a couple more tiers added!! The geraniums in the first are amazingly realistic. I was blown away. Red geraniums are my favorite flower and I'd love to know how these were made. I have silk ones all over my house and real ones outside. When the votes are in I'd like lessons please!!

Great wok ladies!!

OMG...such beautiful cakes! How does one choose between... they are so different and I think any mother would be moved to tears to receive either one.

Good luck ladies!

Wow, those are two very different, yet two gorgeous cakes! Another difficult decision! Hmmm.........this whole month's TD competition is not easy and this particular one is no exception.

Well, I've just gotta go with my first instinct.

Great job on both cakes, Ladies!

Those geraniums are absolutely PERFECT, right down to the brown edges on some of the leaves. And the other cake is so elegant and beautiful. Tough decision!

They are both so beautiful. I am always amazed at the talent of CCer's. Very hard decision. one is so real looking and the othr so so elegant. I agree with Carolann the 2nd one could be the top tier of a very elegant wedding cake.

Such different styles. The second is lovely, and I love the first for it's colors and authenticity. Inspires me to plant some geraniums.

You are very welcome, CarolAnn. I posted all five links in each of the five TD's and will do so periodically throughout the week so everyone will hopefully see them and be able to vote easily. Nothing worse than running around CC like a chicken with your head cut off looking for a thread! I won't EVEN tell how many times I have been that headless creature trying to find a particular thread! icon_lol.gif
