Jeanne - it looks like there is one beginner (me) and one advanced (you) in the loser's corner. If no one signs up that is advanced, do you want to just compete in the intermediate group like I plan to do? If that is okay with the Intermediate folks....come on....that will help us step up our game and push ourselves knowing we are competing with an "advanced" person.

Lesley - yes, you guys can pick whatever you want.

Shirl - I love the Flapper Theme also....I'm in for the Flapper Theme!!!

i was thinking about either something artsy and contemporary, or an inspiration theme...

where we take something non cake related and have it inspire a cake... we all do this with invitations so i thought that would be cool...

you know a painting, an invitation, some wall paper, a picture, a dress...

and then when we post the pics have a pic of the inspiration, and the resulting cake,...

just a thought

Lesley, I really like the inspiration idea. That way we don't really need to pick a theme necessarily. It will be hard to judge though!

it wont be,,,, i dont think
it is mostly how you used the inspiration, and if you nailed it..

maybe for some people it will be hard

but i thought it would be cool

I Found the rules and thought i would post them in their entiretly instead of a link

so here you go tiptop...

Here are the Throwdown Rules:

1. Any member may challenge another CC member to a TD. The TD will all begin and end on the specified dates so all pictures of completed cakes can be uploaded for judging at the same time. This will make it easy for all CC members to judge each TD photo, and, all winners can be announced at the same time.

2. Throw Downs will begin on the first day of every month. Photos are due to your designated poster the third Saturday of the month. which gives one week for voting unless it is a five week month then it will be the fourth Saturday of the month. You will have until 3:00 PM CST on that date to get your pictures sent to the designated picture poster of your particular TD. (Exception: unless other arrangements have been made by your designated poster.)

3. You may submit up to three photos for judging and photos must be consistent between both contestants. Perhaps, front shot, top angle shot and a close-up. Photos must be pre-sized for message boards at 640 X 480.

4. A description should be included with your photos.

5. Fondant, Gumpaste, Sugarpaste and/or Buttercream can be used, you pick your mediums to decorate your cake. TD challengers may use any decorating medium combinations they wish as long as it is edible, (no fresh flowers, cold porcelain, plastic or toys of any kind).

6. Loser is the poster of the new throwdowns. This means the loser of a TD will upload pictures for the subsequent judging.

7. Straight sheet cakes are not allowed with the exception to be used for sculpting cake designs and must be sculpted.

8. Throwdowners should be as equal in decorating skills as possible. If you are a TD winner please try to be fair and choose a member with "equal to or greater than" decorating skills you possess.

9. With the exception of sculpted cakes, dummies are allowed. 3-D sculptures may only use Styrofoam where absolutely necessary.

10. Competitors may use wires, straws, and dowels for supports. These supports should be hidden in the cake and not visible by viewing the cake.

11. Wires used for sprays, flowers, leaves, etcetera, but must not be inserted directly into the cake/dummy.

12. The two TD Challengers will choose the theme of cake to be designed.

13. Any non-winning CC member may only participate in a throwdown one time in a 12 month period. Only the current winner of a throwdown will continue on. Once this winner loses he/she must wait 12 months before participating in another TD.

14. Everything on the cake, including the cake, has to be crafted and decorated entirely by the CC member without help from anyone else (i.e. no store bought pearls only hand crafted.) Exceptions; throwdowners may have help with the cutting of cake boards or structural support.

15. Only two members may compete in any particular throwdown, however, many Throw Downs may happen at one time. A TD isn't a TD if there are more than two competing against each other.

16. Largest cake board used may not exceed 14".

17. Cakes can be one tier but no more than three tiers and they may be separated or stacked. The size should be determined by the TD competitors prior to the start of the challenge so each cake is judged/voted against a similar sized cake.

18. Participants are not allowed on the actual voting thread during the vote. Exception: participant may concede. The board will open up to throwdowners after the winner has been determined.

19. The designated poster has the right to point out infractions of the above rules on the original voting post.

******************************************
revised 6/18/08
These rules supercede any prior posted Throw Down rules or guidelines.

My suspicions became evident....that when faced with competition, even a person who'd never picked up a spatula(slight exaggeration) could whoop a 'seasoned' decorator.

Vicki, I don't have any qualms about who my opponent is....I'd be happy competing with anyone from someone's 5 y/o cousin to Sylvia Weinstock ....

I'm just here for the party!

If there winds up being an odd number of competitors, I'll step to the side.
