You might think your local bakery prepares some stunning designer cakes, but it’s hard to hold a candle to these winning delights from the annual online Threadcake competition. The delicious competition is open to both professional cake bakers and ametuers alike.
No matter who you are, or where you seek your inspiration, the goal is to create either a 2D or 3D cake, which are judged in separate competitions. One of the main rules is that nearly all of the cake must be edible. The entries are truly out of this world, try not to let your mouth water too much.

Yenna Susanty created this cake in all of its glory, you would never even guess she only started cake decorating early this same year, back in February. Due to some lack of experience, the cake took a solid 3-days to put together. All in all it was well worth it!

Ana Mourinho Remigio chose to make this 3D cake simply because she’s a cat lover! After entering the contest, this cake was given to Ana’s aunt as a birthday present. Needless to say, she thought it was puuurfect!
Back in 2007, the very first Threadcake competition ever was held, and since then it has become an annual tradition we can all look forward to, even if you have no idea how to mold sugar into a cat or massive octopus.
While the cakes are one of a kind, the winning entries are based on t-shirts you can purchase through the Threadless website. Threadless actually holds a number of contests, and not all of them have to do with food.
