Lately I’ve found that there is something of a design war going on among cake designers – those who prefer the traditionally decorated cakes vs those who like the more modern, usually fondant-covered designs. I’m curious about your opinion. Below are two representative cakes from each style. Neither of them were made by me! If you click on the photos themselves you’ll link back to their owners.

Which would you choose? Answer the poll below, and feel free to leave comments!
