Threadcakes Contest: A Piece of Cake

If you love cake like I love cake, you've probably heard of the Threadcakes contest. And if you haven't, let me enlighten you - it's an online cake contest held by the awesome folks who run the site. Contest rules are simple, make a cake inspired from one of the graphic tee designs from the site and send in your in-process photos with a description.

With all the awesome t-shirt designs available on, I was really excited to participate in this contest but I was also really hesitant to do so as it seemed like this contest was more meant for the home baker. However, as the weeks passed and I saw the caliber of the submissions, I knew I was in good company so I decided to give in to my desire to recreate some of my favorite designs in cake form.

This first cake I entered was based on the below "A Piece of Cake" design.

Looking at the photo below, it's easy to think that this was a normal slice of cake but this was in fact a 10" slice of cake. And not to be redundant, you can read the description and see the in-process photos here. Oh, while you're there, you should also check out some of the other awesome cake designs. :)

I had time to complete two more cake submissions for this contest, one of which even won 2nd place, so you'll be hearing from me again soon. ;)
