There’s a new designer cupcake in town!

Ok maybe it’s not new new. But it’s new to me!

Recently I received an email from Fiona on behalf of Threadcakes. (See the logo+info on side menubar.) It’s an online cake competition hosted by and Chris Cardinal that combines the creativity of tshirt design into edible art! How cool is that? This is only their second year but I have a feeling this competition will be around for a LONG time.

Obviously I LOVE the idea and just HAVE TO enter. Prizes aside (and there are some awesome prizes) you all know how much of a blog event freak I am right? I decided to check out the Threadcakes Gallery for some inspiration. And I was pleasantly surprised to see some cupcake entries so I just had to share with my readers.

(Please click the link under each picture to see the original tshirt the cupcake was based on. The cupcake is more amazing when you see the inspiration. Trust me.)

Revenge of the Sushi


Dandy Lions

Be Cool

Now that I know my cupcake competition, I am off to figure out my cupcake entry. Wish me luck! (I have to admit after seeing all the great entries, I’m “this” close to wussing out!)
