Threadcakes Cake Contest 2009!

Threadcakes Cake Contest!If you’re not familiar with Threadless,  you might want to head on over and check out their site. The t-shirt company started small and became a runaway hit by using user-submitted designs for their clothing. The community is huge and new designs are usually voted in by them. They’re a creative crowd. The designs range from pieces that look like classical works of art (or better) to those that are just a little silly or fun.

This week, Threadless launched their Threadcakes contest. The contest is to turn t-shirt art into edible art, and invites users to come up with cake designs that match those of their favorite Threadless tees. It’s probably a bit harder than it sounds since some of the shirt designs are so unusual, but it’s a fun challenge to take on. There are lots of prizes and categories for both 2D and 3D cakes. I’m one of the judges this year, along with Jen from Cake Wrecks, Louise from Cake Journal, Jennifer from Bake or Break and Mary Alice from Charm City Cakes/Ace of Cakes.

The contest runs until August 3rd, 2009, with no limits to the number of entries you can submit. There will even be some “surprise” weekly prizes given out, too! Check out some of the previous entries pictured below, then browse through the Threadless tees to find some inspiration for your own cake!
