We've brought in some heavy-duty cake-judging talent to determine who reigns supreme. In addition to one or two Threadless staffers and myself, the following foodie-folks will be taking your tasty creations to task:
Jen is the writer and creator of the hit blog Cake Wrecks. Cake Wrecks was the 2008 Weblog Awards winner for Best Food Blog and the 2008 winner of the Best Humor Blog from the Blogger's Choice Awards. Jen's book, Cake Wrecks: When Professional Cakes Go Hilariously Wrong, is available now!
Nicole Weston is the writer and the baker behind the popular food blog, BakingBites.com. Baking Bites has been named one of the top 50 Food Blogs in the World by the London Times. Nicole and her recipes have also been featured in publications such as People Magazine and the Washington Post.
Mary Alice from Ace of Cakes has also offered up her judging prowess.
Angie is the writer and baker behind Bakerella.com where she focuses on fun and easy baking. The site is a place to explore recipes, desserts and decorating. Angie is known for introducing the world to Cake Pops and inspiring others to tap into their creative side with these amazing treats. She has appeared on the Martha Stewart Show and has been featured in People magazine, Entertainment Weekly, Taste of Home, Betty Crocker, and more. Angie is also the author of the New York Times Best-Selling book, Cake Pops
Natalie Slater is the creator and writer of Bake and Destroy, "the food blog equivalent to a punch in the throat." She's a resident blogger at WTTW Chicago Tonight, and has served as a judge on Food Network's Cupcake Wars. An occasional Threadless model, her sweet tooth is razor-sharp.
Jennifer is a self-taught baker whose adventures can be followed at her blog, Bake or Break. That site began in June 2006 as an outlet for sharing her love of baking. Bake or Break focuses on simple, delicious baked goods, with an unintentional focus on chocolate. She lives happily with her husband Quinn, two cats, and a Kitchen Aid mixer.
