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

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!
