Both are awesome designs, but I like the floral cake better. I love the uniform look of the tiers & its just so unique 🙂

I like the 2nd one. I’m a big fan of mis-matched tiers and I love how simple and elegant, yet quirky it is. The floral is just too busy for me.

Personally, I like the first one because it is so unique!

I like the second cake better – the first one has too much going on at once for me.

I like the 2nd, but would change the designs to match or match every other tier on the cake.

I like the flower cake, but I have to be honest – as a married bee, in retrospect, I worried WAY TOO MUCH about the cake.  It gets looked at, cut, cut apart, and eaten.  Half my guests barely noticed it although it was prominently displayed.  Here is what you might be able to do…ask the baker to make the cake as shown, but do only one real layer.  Have him make the rest fake layers.  That way, you have alayer to cut, but the rest are just for looks.  Then you have sheet cakes in the back.  I had one fake layer on my 5 tier cake, but a friend did what I suggested to you.  Youll still have to pay for the flowers and labor, but it will cut the cost down significantly.  Good luck!

I like the first cake better because I like cakes to have some dimension and interesting texture to it.  The second one is too flat for my taste.

I like the second one.  I think it’s a great idea to have a smaller cake and then have sheet cake in the back to supplement it.  People won’t even know the difference!

I love them both too!  But I do like the first one better.  Its got such a unique design, its not something many people will have seen before.

I like the first one better too.  And it’s common to have a smaller display cake to cut, with extra sheets in the back.  So don’t worry about doing that.
