A couple mystery blooms

I have a mystery. Both these are repeat bloomers for 3 and 2 years...and they aren't at all what they weren't labeled. Any ideas to their ID? Stripey is creamy-yellow. Reddish-orange has a nice white picotee edge (it is a bit droopey after getting creamed by a pot of Best Seller!). I won't even tell you want they were labeled or who was selling them until we get some ideas on ID...will bring a smile or laugh to some on the list. I think many of us got the reddish-orange...

Could the first be Cutting Edge? It is not as frilly as shown in promotional photos, but I am posting a guess because you have me intrigued about the seller.

Bill, I got the bulbs in question in 2011 and 2012. Was Cutting Edge available in 2011?

RE: A couple mystery blooms

What they were doling out for Cutting Edge is very similar to your first flower though and since we still have yet to see the real Cutting Edge, I suppose anything is possible. Here is my rendition of cutting edge:
