Oh my gosh!! I love them both!

The Tiki and bamboo are incredible. Your hibiscus look real! I love the stitching around the banana leaves.... Beautiful! Neat for a wedding!

The woody looks amazing.... such great shape and i love the surfboard! How cute "woody" this be for a groom's cake or a joint shower! I also like the way you did the brown fondant instead of having the messy "sand" all the way to the edges!


I can't decide.... I will have to come back and vote later on this one!!

Another tough decision. I love the car and surfboard, on the one hand, and the hibiscus and bamboo on the other. Gorgeous cakes!

OMG, these cakes are great! I can't get over the degree of difficulty. The standards are rising higher and higher!

Both cakes are just so great and I love each of them for different reasons. The car and people are amazing. The flowers, bamboo and tiki in cake #2 are so incredibly realistic looking - Wow!

But I'm going to have to say that I truly feel that the 2nd cake is more representative of the theme. The first one can be any beach or sandy area anywhere, but the elements used in the 2nd cake scream out "Hawaii/Polynesian" to me.

CONGRATS TO BOTH OF YOU ON WONDERFUL CAKES!!!
I must be honest, i love both the cakes, but for me the second one looks more to the theme, first one is also great - the car is amazing too!!!

Great work!
