Both cakes are way-y-y better than what I could've come up with! that said, I absolutely fell in love with the reindeers that are circling the base of the second cake. Awesome.

I love them both! So hard to decide, but I am partial to the reindeer on the second cake. They look so elegant and like they could leap right off of the cake and onto your roof....

Great job to both cakers!

Wow! These are both awesome cakes! There are 3 adults here looking at these cakes, one of us picked A, one picked B, and one was undecided. So we flipped a coin to see who got the vote. Head for A, tails for B. I won't tell you what the toss was but will tell you we all think both these cakes are FANTASTIC and you both are winners in our eyes!! thumbs_up.gif

they're both really cute, but I'm going to have to vote for B. I think it is more unique and the reindeers are perfect
