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.
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.)
They both did a great job!
They are both beautiful. Very hard to decide. Merry christmas everyone.
bumpity bump! Come on eveyrone. These ladies worked really hard on their cakes. I am sure they would love to hear your comments!
No, I'm sorry. Impossible to decide!
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!
Love them both! What amazing work! They both look like fun to do.
How to choose, how to choose? I'm still fighting with myself over which to choose! I think they're both exceptionally done; love santa and gotta love the split miser cake!

WHOA!!! She really pummeled me! I'm not worthy... (hangs head in shame)
Great job Stephanie!
Congrats Stephanie ~ you earned it. Thanks again for doing this...
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!!!!
Both cakes are really cute. I think they both should win!
Thanks Stephanie ~ that was my first time ever making hard candy...it worked out well. I was pleased I didn't blow up my kitchen.
And thank you Vicki ~
