The Threadcakes online cake competition, which wrapped up on November 3rd this year, features some of the most stunning works of cake art we’ve ever seen.

The contest, which has been running annually since 2007, invites both professionals and amateurs to create cakes in either the 2D or 3D categories based on art from the Threadless community, which sells artists’ designs on shirts. The rules demand that entrants’ cakes be as edible as possible, allowing for only minimal non-edible supports to be used when constructing 3D cakes.

We discovered the contest when we wrote about Kylie Mangles, who made a creepy but amazing Ralph cutout cake. There are hundreds of other jaw-dropping cakes participating in their contests as well, so take a look!
