22 Of The Best Entries To The Threadcakes Cake Competition

Published 6 years ago

These 22 beautiful artworks look just like sculptures, but they are all almost entirely edible delicious cakes, created for the annual Threadcakes competition.

The contest started off back in 2007, inviting art lovers to get inspired by T-shirt designs from the Threadless artist community and create a sweet edible hand-made replica themselves. The competitors could choose the illustrations they wanted to use and then choose between two categories – 2D or 3D cakes. The cakes made for the competition are allowed to have inedible supporting parts, but points are given for having as much edible cake as possible.

Even though this year’s competition was closed on November 3rd , it’s still worth seeing the best entries from this and previous years. Perhaps you’ll be inspired to create one of your own next year! Also, check out our post on the marvelous Cutout Ralph – the Threadcakes submission that made us intrigued by this competition in the first place.
