For the last two years, I’ve had the opportunity to be one of the judges for the Threadcakes Cake Contest and I’m happy to say that I’m back to judge for the third year in a row! The cake contest challenges people to create edible works of art in the form of cakes inspired by Threadless t-shirt designs (such as this popsicle t-shirt I recently featured in a giveaway!). Threadless, if you’re not familiar with them, is a t-shirt company that uses amazing user-submitted art for their clothing.
The rules for the contest are very simple. You must bake and decorate a cake inspired by one of the MANY Threadless t-shirt designs, take lots of photos and post your entry to the contest by Monday, August 15th, 2011. Entries will not be judged on the quality of the photographs, but it is important that the photos allow the judges to clearly see how cool your cake is. There are both 2D and 3D cake categories, and there are lots of amazing prizes to win.
So, browse through the designs at Threadless for some inspiration and take a peek at last year’s gallery to see how people interpreted the tees into cake then. There is no limit to the number of entries you can post and there will even be some “surprise” weekly prizes given out to make things more exciting. Good luck – and I can’t wait to see the final entries!
