started Threadcakes in 2007. The contest seemed like a fun idea; turning art into edible art, and having run the Loves Threadless
fan blog, he decided to run the contest through his blog. Tons of fans of Threadless
signed up and submitted over 100 entries, including some absolutely wonderful pieces. No contest was run in 2008, but in 2009 we had almost 600 cakes and over 9,000 cake photos. Absolute madness.
Threadless and a few other sponsors have been kind enough to donate prizes, which help make the contest all the more fun to win, but we think the contest is great just to enter!
