We have 2 amazing cakes from 2 amazing decorators. This is one of the three throwdowns that we have this month.


Christmas Eve ~ Santa is stuck in the chimney and Rudolf is taking a break while the other reindeer have gone back to the shop to see if they can find something to get Santa out of the chimney with.

This is a 10inch carved square cake, WRSC (rum extract instead of almond) iced in chocolate buttercream spiked with Godiva Liquor and fondant covering. Santas sleigh is chocolate, the snow is royal icing, the chimney and roof are RKTs and everything else is fondant.

Merry Christmas!!!





Based on characters from my favorite Christmas special...

Title of cake: Another Miser family Christmas
Flavor cake: Turtle cake w/ caramel-pecan filling
Description: hand painted fondant, fondant figures. homemade hard candy "ice". (it's 2 tier with a separator covered in fondant.)

That's my favorite Christmas special too!!!!!! Both cakes are awesome, I'm not sure I can decide. I will have to think this over very carefully!

Both cakes are awesome! Nice job ladies! I have argued with myself over the last few minutes on wich one to vote for, and I have decided that while both are deserving of a vote, Im going to have to go with the second one. It is just so different and the characters are incredible.

Again, great job on both cakes, and have a Merry Christmas!

Had to go with Miser Brothers! Reminds me of when I was little, waiting on Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer to come on! However, C1 was extremely well done! LOVE the cottage!

Thanks Kristi!!!! You did a fantastic job as well! Your figures were awesome and your use of homemade hard candy was really unique. I could not have been happier to go up against you! You were truly a pleasure to "compete" against!

And thanks Vicki for hosting for us!!!!
