Description for contestant 1's cake:
This was a cake involving lots of firsts for me... First time using Luster Dust, first time molding a human figure, and first time covering the inside of a cylinder! Everything here is edible, no dummies used. I made my "beach" from a 12" hexagon pan, covered in fondant and roughed up to look like sand. The wave is Rice Krispie treats covered in fondant and spraypainted and the foam on the wave is buttercream. The starfish are molded fondant spraypainted orange and red. The shells are molded fondant spraypainted and then painted with Luster Dust. The surfer and crab are molded fondant.
Description for contestant 2's cake:
a little about the cake... everything ( i mean everything) is fondant.. the girl, shells, sea life, burger, soda, sun tan lotion, sandals, towel, rake and shovel... even the coral, rocks, shells and the bucket. The sand is mini nilla wafers that went through the mixer and at the last second i added some clear sugar crystals to add some sparkle... Umbrella is make with gumpaste, and then covered with colored fondant panels...the support is a fondant covered popsicle stick
WOW!! You two sure wanted to make this hard!!! How to vote now?? Great job to both of you!
Great job on both cakes !
Wow...love the wave..awesome!..love the burger!
This is a tough one. Both cakes are fantastic. Good luck to both of the decorators.
Great job ladies...they both make me want to hit the beach
One of my all time favorite themes, and you both did an awesome job! I'm very impressed and now the difficult decision of trying to vote.............love the surfer dude - well done! Great job on the shells and the intricate piping on the wave.
I also love all the detail work on the 2nd cake with all the under-the-sea details and colors and the on-the-beach action and details. Great job molding the girl and all the beach paraphanelia! Very impressive!
i love the details on the second cake. the wave on the first one is amazing too!

Great job on both cakes! I love the surfer and wave; incredible details! But I love the details of the beach items on the 2nd cake too! Tough choices! Again, super job to both of you!
Just voted.Both are exceptional!
How to choose??? Great job!
I voted. (sorry I just now noticed this thread and TD I've been busy caking the last few days) Both of these cakes are very well done and I'm impressed with how hard they worked on these. Especially since it was 1st for some items done. Very cool theme to have too.
Busy is a GOOD thing Melissa
I love the surfer cake. That wave action is awesome, and the surfer looks great too!! I love the details on the beach cake. The side work looks great and the girl and details are soo cute! Hard to pick one this time!! I got my vote in. Good luck to both contestants!!
Good grief! The two contestants really did an outstanding job!
I love the details of the surfer, his board shorts, the board itself, and his long-ish hair. The sand texture really works, without having to add crushed anything. And the coloring of the shells and starfish are great!
The second one...gods! SO many details. Love all the colors, and the tiniest details are what I always look for, and wasn't disappointed there!
I actually had to think out a pros and cons list for each cake before making my final vote! That's saying something, as I usually just have an immediate first impression reaction, and vote accordingly.
FANTASTIC work BOTH of you! Good luck!
bumping so it stays on top
