The Hunger Games Cakes

Welcome to the first annual Hunger Games cake decoration contest! We have ten tributes to pick from. May these ten tributes serve as a reminder to you of your treacherous acts against the Capitol, 75 years ago when you weren't alive. Really, you brought this on yourself.

Be sure to enlarge each picture and really get a good look at the deets. I hope these games bring a tear to your eye, whether it be a tear of sorrow or a tear of laughter.

Let the games begin, and may the odds be ever in all your gize favor.

Oh, one more thing. Please refrain from identifying your tribute, or anyone else's tribute until the voting is closed. Let's keep it anon, K? You can leave comments, but the voting will be determined by the poll. Voting is open until 11:59pm tonight. And yes, you can send your friends and family over to vote. We might finally settle that old arguement, "who's the most popular?" Or you can vote from your heart. Meh.



#1. The Cornucopia








#2. The Death of Rue







#3. "Peeta!"






#4. Mockingjay







#5. "Yes Frosting. The Final Defense of the Dying."









6. 60 Seconds (until the 74th annual Hunger Games)









#7. Katniss, Sitting on Peeta, Buried in the River Bank







#8. "Katniss Everdeen, the Girl who was on Fire"









(Katniss Everdeen, exploding)


#9. Cornucopia, Rue's Flowers, and Tracker Jackers





#10. Silver Parachute







UPDATE: If you were directed here from another site and want to see who actually won the cake contest, click HERE.
The poll below was voided. If you want to know why, click HERE.
This contest was done in good humor among friends, and we all found the cheating, outsmarting, and manipulating to be highly entertaining and dramatic.
We will definitely be having a Catching Fire cake contest before book three is released next year.






WAIT... click right HERE before you go. It's just a quick survey about this contest. No biggie. Nicole wants you to take the survey, too. Yes, yes, she told me to tell you. No, no, you're not in trouble.

::raising my eyebrow, crossing my arms, giving you a "you're in srs trouble" look::

That was a tough choice. There were 4 that I wanted to vote for, but finally settled on one. You guys are awesome!

Carol said...

Awsome tributes to the Hunger Games. It's been so long since I read it I had forgotten so many fun parts----until those cakes. It all came rushing back. I laughed, I cried, I was scared. . . .every emotion. Thanks Jespy for enriching our lives.

ManicMandee said...

I am so impressed with all those entries! What a fun contest. I can't wait to know who did which cakes. And I had no trouble voting for #8. Too funny and violent. Loved it. But they were all great! I wouldn't have stood a chance if I had entered.

Landee said...

This is sizing up to be one of the bloodiest battles in Hunger Game Inspired Cake Deocrating EVER!

The odds are so not in my favor.... 10 tributes?? TEN??? Incredible.

Warriorcats said...

i like the mocking jay. it is very creative and looks pretty nice. good job to the person who made it! XDDDDD

Memzy said...

I'm lollerzing and eyeing all the contestants with anger at the same time. It is killing me!!

StandsMom said...

Very bloody indeed. I loved all of them, btw! They're all so completely different!

Warriorcats said...

who DID do the mocking jay anyway? i want to give them a big pat on the back, a virtual bag of skittles, a congrats, and a good job. WHO MADE THE MOCKING JAY? lol

eekareek said...

This is going to be the closest race EVER! BTW, can there be two victors?

eekareek said...

Shoot! I wrote the same thing as Landee. She is a career and don't want people thinking I allied with her.

Jenny ESP said...

Hey Warriorcat, you'll find out who made that masterpiece tomorrow, when the contest is over. Patience, Grasshopper.

Warriorcats said...

oh ya i fergot. STUPID STUPID STUPID ME. *bonks head on keyboard* tfgvtfgrt54 y67

Landee said...

How dare you say I'm a CAREER Eeka! I'm sittin up in a tree with an arrow notched in my bow waiting to pick you off the second I see the whites of your eyes.

Later Imma eat some raw rabbit (crossing fingers I don't get rabbit fever) and maybe kill a monkey or two.

eekareek said...

Whatever! I am the one who warned you about the tracker jacker nest ::as I leap away from tree to tree angrily::

Security Solutions said...

W.O.W. I voted, oh yes, but for who? I'm not sure. It is a tough race. I'm so glad I didn't make a cake that would have been surely mocked. I would like to eat one though.

Flem said...

You promised like 2 or 3 participants. This is insanity.

And WOW to you bakers. Just wow.

Emily said...

Oh my gosh! That was SO hard to choose. I can't believe how elaborate some of those cakes were! I can't wait to find out the results and see who made what!

Jana said...

WOW - those are all amazing! I think the winner should get 50 grand.

Krissy said...

Oh. My. Awesomeness! Those are some mad cake decorating skillz! Good luck to all you crazy cake bakers, I can't wait to see who the winners are!

Cristin said...

HOLY FREAKAZOID!!! Now I'm super duper happy that I didn't bother making a cake!!! You people have some serious skills...and creativity. I was just thinking of making a cake to look like a loaf of bread...booooooring. This is why I don't bake.

Emily said...

I can't stay away!! I keep having to come back and see which one is winning! I will say that there are some cheaters out there who gave away which cake was theirs. Sheesh.

I guess I shouldn't talk, I tried to vote multiple times by logging in and logging out--to no luck, of course!

Landee said...

There are cheaters out there doing FAR WORSE than saying which cake is thiers. Trust me.

Plus, Jespy called it a popularity contest, yet we had to remain anonymous? Typical Capitol deception and mind games. I won't be a pawn in her silly game.

Erin Beck said...

Holy crap you all have way to much time n your hands...if only I didnt work full time and go to school full time.

StandsMom said...

There aren't some white-uniformed peacekeepers hiding around the corner are there? Keeping track of everything we say? After what I just read about District 11, I don't want to tip the turnip cart if you know what I mean. Yikes! And I didn't have any idea how excited I was going to be until I saw that graph of the votes...those bright shining yellow bars...I. Can't. Stop. Checking!

Markie23 said...

I think tribute number four must be riding around naked in a chariot somewhere to be picking up that many sponsors. I want pictures!

StandsMom said...

Oh My Gosh Mockingjay Cake Person!!!

Hot Pants said...

My stomach hurts....

Oops, I almost revealed which cake was mine. I can't believe how many cakes there are and how good they look too. This is some serious competition.

StandsMom said...

Are you freaking kidding me? How many people do some of you people know? I'm speechless.

Memzy said...

Yeah this has turned no fun for me. ::staring at people using technology in their favor::

Andrea's Mom said...

Shel said...

Warriorcats said...

Jenny ESP said...

The cool thing about the "Polldaddy" account I set up, is that I am able to detect multiple poll votes from the same IP address. Cool, huh? ::creepy dead-srs look on my face::

Markie23 said...

^^thank goodness for Open Proxy Networks... Freenet, I2P, JAP, TOR, etc.

eekareek said...

The rules are, there are no rules. Sorry if I am popular!

Jenny ESP said...

^^ don't MESS with the Capitol. ::sliding my finger across my neck::

Memzy said...

Im confused. Did you take away the results so we can't see who's winning?

Jenny ESP said...

^^what are you talking about? Try again.

Warriorcats said...

dude... who changed the name of mocking jay on the vote thing. it says NOT mocking jay now. what the heck? is it just my comp? no no of course not. it cant be..

Dunkey said...

Its Sad seems someone Modified the List,.. Is there some pent up Anger to the Mocking Jay Cake? I liked the yellow on White Icing,..

Jenny ESP said...

^^Yes, the yellow on white is quite striking. I wonder what happened.

Hot Pants said...

Some people just have a hard time dealing with my amazing abilities. Campaigning is hard work. I'm pretty sure I went over my minutes today.

Hot Pants said...

No repeating IP's over here.

Wow those cakes look really weird and CREEPY. This series just doesn't look right with anything from clothes to cakes. Not very appealing sorry that's just my opinion.
