Fancy Yourself a Cake Artist? Submit to Threadcakes!

You know what’s great? Awesome art. You know what’s even greater? Awesome art you can eat.

It goes without saying that we love great art here at Threadless. And great (tasting) cake art might be one of our favorite flavors of creativity. So we’re pretty stoked that Threadcakes 2016 has officially kicked off! This annual Threadless-themed cake-making contest held by our friend (and Threadfan) Chris Cardinal of Synapse Studios in Arizona is an epic competition where you cake-ify Threadless designs into 2D or 3D cakes. Chris judges them, and WE get to eat them…Just kidding…we only wish…

Fancy yourself a cake artist and want to submit a design? Want more deets? Wanna just look at awesome cakes? Check out the big picture here, guidelines here, and sick prizes here.
