There should be a third polling option for tied. These are both remarkable cakes. Each has it's own flare and style - very hard to choose a favorite because they are both beautiful!

Kudo's to both contestant as they both created amazing cakes!!!

I am stumped, but I will go with my heart!!

post #22 of 89 can you possibly choose between these two beauties!!! They are both so gorgeous and what incredible talent!!. The amazing and such fun thing about a TD is to see how two people will interpret the same theme in such different ways!!!

OK ladies and gentlemen..

I have to explain something..

Both cakes have broken one rule each..

So because this is a FUN thing and they are both in the same TD there arent any disqualifications.. There is no way I could disqualify any one here. So please don't pm and remind Lea or myself about the rules please icon_wink.gif we know the rules.. icon_smile.gif

Lea is also revising the rules for the June TD icon_smile.gif

Please read the revised rules and have fun with this

WOO HOOO let the voting continue..

Both of these women really outdid themselves. Each cake is so beautiful. I LOVE those birds -- have never seen anything like them. The stringwork and ribbon insertion is also gorgeous. Very difficult decision. Congratulations to you both!
