As you may or may not know, I am psyched to be on the judging panel for this year’s Threadcakes competition! If you’ve been eating fondand under a rock somewhere I’ll fill you in – it’s a cake decorating contest that melds the creative, crowd-sourced designs of Threadless t-shirts with the uber popular art of cake decorating.

If you’re in the Chicago area you can watch Threadless’ Charlie Festa and I yap it up about the competition on WTTW Chicago Tonight this Wednesday, July 21st sometime between 7 & 9pm. If you’re not in Chicago, no worries – I’ll post the clip right here the very next day.

NEWSFLASH: Chicago Tonight appearance pushed to next week due to Blago trial coverage. I’ll let you know the new date & time asap!

Speaking of the next day, Threadless is dropping four of the coolest designs yet on July 22nd and I was proud to model a few of them. It’s top secret awesomeness so I can’t tell you anything else about it – except that one of you will win ALL FOUR designs. And, since it’s kind of a big deal, I’ve decided to give everyone multiple ways to enter.

You’ll receive one entry for doing each of the following:

  1. visit Threadcakes and tell me your favorite submission for the 2010 competition so far
  2. visit Threadless and tell me which design you’d like to see turned into a cake
  3. become a Facebook fan of Threadcakes
  4. become a Facebook fan of Threadless
  5. become a Facebook fan of Bake and Destroy
  6. follow Threadcakes on Twitter
  7. follow Threadless on Twitter
  8. follow Bake and Destroy on Twitter

So that’s eight chances to win four completely awesome shirts from Threadless. You can enter as many or as few of these ways as you like – just please consolidate them all into one comment on this post. For example, my entry would look like this:

  1. Zombie at Tiffany’s
  2. It’s Always Midnight Somewhere
  3. done
  4. done
  5. done
  6. done
  7. done
  8. done

See? Eight ways to win. Just for you. Because we here at Bake and Destroy, Threadless and Threadcakes like you. We really do. I’m picking a winner on Friday, July 23 so get to it!

Thanks for playing everyone, I just notified the winner!
