UGH! The texture is delicious. I Love this! The bunting is cute but I don't think it is necessary. The cake is obviously the focal point and the text is delicately positioned to be perfectly legible. I think the bunting (though adorable) just clutters it up. I would love to see some negative space above those adorable candles. This design is phenomenal!!!!

B for me, but both are ridiculously pretty! Wow! Your textures and colors are gorgeous! One tiny nitpick- I'm wondering if there is a better way to resolve the overlap of the banners? I'd almost try not overlapping them and have where they meet be just off center? Totally minor detail though- seriously adore this as is!
