Hey hive! You all are so helpful, so I thought I would come to you again for some help! Way too many decisions to make, it’s nive to get other people’s opinions.
The cake will be sitting on a wine barrel at the reception- I have a burlap and lace theme, just going for simple and classy.
Cake A (the second cake I fell in love with- easier to cut, make and most likely eat):
Cake B- she has to make all the little pearls, people may end up scraping them off- supposedly they are a little hard (ignore the flowers, I was just playing around on photoshop):

I absolutely love the first one.

What is your budget for cake?
I love cake A and had a similar design in mind but when I went to have this priced I realized it was far more than I was willing to spend on cake. Each of those designs have to be cut out of fondant using a stamp/stencil and is labor intensive. Plus you are paying for two layers of fondant.
Anyway Cake A, very pretty. 🙂

I love the look of the first cake a thousand times more, and if it’s easier to make and eat, it would be an easy choice for me.

@Treejewel19: They are both about the same price-wise. My cake place actually does not use fondant to cover the actual cake (she does buttercream that looks JUST like fondant though, it’s pretty awesome!), so the only fondant would be for the molds.

The first one definitely! 🙂

@csgruver: Then I vote for cake A twice. 🙂

I love cake A
Just make sure that your baker has the talent to pull that off – if you have seen her work and she has examples of a sharp and smooth buttercream base, you’re good to go!

I’m in the minority, but I think the second cake is the stand-out option! However, the first sounds like it would go better with your theme.
