So, as I know, many of you are fans of Threadless t-shirts and assorted apparel/art. Last year the company had a contest in which people competed in a contest known as Threadcakes. This was a competition in which people competed to present a cake that interpreted a threadless design.

Most of you by now know that I am a pastry chef. If not, well you do now! As such, I am considering taking it upon myself to enter the competition. Below I have listed my current top contenders for your voting pleasure.

1: Ladies and Gentlebug: It's alright
2: Blow With The Wind: Cool design, and I think it'd work on a cake
3. Blooming: The flowers would probably turn out well, but how detailed can you do the deer?
4. 5: I find this one morbidly hilarious, but perhaps the judges are bird lovers
5. A Piece of Cake: This one is ironic, but perhaps too simple. May be hard to read the text on a real cake.
6. Cake is Awesome: Bleah
7. Clouds Within the Thunder: Not sure this would really work on a cake
8. The Choir of Antarctica: Ditto

I voted for 2.

For the Antarctica entry, my thought was to do a series of petit fours (i.e., small cakes about finger length). I would dip them in white chocolate and then carefully dip/glaze the black part of the penguins and pipe the rest.

I've cast my vote for the Choir of Antarctica, perhaps because I am partial to both penguins and pianos. This also handily breaks the tie, for now.
