Mega-Pi-Day 3/14/15 (WINNERS!!!) Bake Off - Win a monkey Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

We have winners!

Yarrhoys,

It's Pi-Day again, but not a normal Pi-Day, it's Mega-Pi-Day as it is 3/14/15 and it's 9.26 (at least in New Zealand) when I'm posting this! Better than the usual 1.59 to post! Everything's better with ninjas pirates! Especially on Pi-day 2015

So as it's Pi Day we need to celebrate! But while we have a reason to celebrate, we also have a reason to grieve. Sir Terry Pratchett died this week and he was a master of the circular realm called Discworld. And we all know that there can't be a disc without Pi, well it could be, but it wasn't a disc, more like a brick and I doubt that Brickworld novels would have had such an impact.

To honor this great writer and celebrate Pi Day, I want you to make a pie, (cake, gateau, giant cookie) with a disc shaped, that is circular with a noticable height.

As I would be fine with just taste testing for judgement, Clotho says it's not possible, so I want your pies to show some pirate stuff and some Discworld stuff. this may be just a pirate dancing on 4 elephants that stand on a turtle or even more subtile with just cats looking up at a hooded YPP-Skellie with a scythe. Everything has to be edible though I don't mind some toothpicks or similar food safe removable stuff if it helps to keep your product stable. As this is meant to honor a man with a great sense of humor, I will confess that humor is definitely part of the judging criterias, so be creative.

As this is a somewhat more demanding task, you have 3+1+4+1+5 days counting from the end of this year's Pie day, so deadline is Sunday March 29th at 2.59 am PST (pirate time).

Prizes:

1st prize: A tan monkey and a commemorative trinket
2nd prize: A sleeping tortoise furniture and a commemorative trinket
3rd prize: An elephant pet and a commemorative trinket
Honorable Mentions: A cat pet and a commemorative trinket

Rules in detail:
- Deadline March 29th at 2.59 am pirate time (PST) Any entry edited or posted after that time will be deleted
- Make a pie/cake/gateau/giant cookie depicting something combining pirates or YPP with something from Discworld
- While your base has to be 3 dimensional, your 'picture/scene' may or may not be 3 dimensional
- Everything has to be edible and should be fitting to your entry. You may add removable food safe things for stability like tooth picks, but not as decorative elements.
- You need to provide at least 5 photos with a physical (not photoshopped) name plate containing your name ocean and 3/14/15 on it:
- materials
- 2 work in progress shots
- 1 of the finished cake
- 1 of the finished cake cut, so it really gets eaten!
- Post those together with your pirate name and ocean to the entry thread
- You may add a description and recipe of the cake


Have fun and if you have questions, just ask.

Happy Pi Day

Could we bake cupcakes if we assemble it into a giant cupcake cake? Sort of like this?

Sure, why not. It's about the fun and it's still a cake and it still has circular bases.

Great entries, all of you! I will have some hard time to decide who did best. And I really need to stop doing food competitions I can't taste test...

After another 314 days (or so) we finally have winners. All your entries were great and so it was hard to judge, but we finally finished it.

2 honorable mentions are sent to Emerald:
Telikos and Tinkerbella did an awesome Job and I was directly reminded at a Cohen Cosplayer I met once. and who doesn't love elephants?

3rd place is going to Herowena of Cerulean and the circumfence-kraken. A great Idea and a nice looking cake. What did you use for the water?

2nd place will be sent to Meridian of Greylade (or the other way round) for depicting one of the greatest characters of discworld in a great way. I won't PvP you ;)

and the winner is: Quansha of Emerald with a very nice pit and from looking at the WiP photos a very tasty cake.


Clotho will magically deliver prizes to you soonish and thank you again for participating.

Hurrah, thank you! Egg custard and blue food coloring result in swampy green water, but it tasted good. With eyes closed.

Congratulations to everyone. I think you honored Sir Terry in an appropriately off-beat fashion. Thank you for the event, Locu. I'm happy I managed to participate in your inspired madness!

Huge thanks for the price and a great event! Congratulations to everyone, those were some awesome looking cakes. Now I'm craving sweets for some reason...

(Thought about naming the monkey Librarian, but then thought of the pummeling it would get me.)

/me adds "Librarian" to list of names I wish I had thought of first.
I did think of naming my elephant Fifth, but that's kind of cruel.

I was honestly considering giving out the monkey named Librarian, but thought it might put people off.

Calling a Librarian a monkey guarantees a beating. I wonder if calling a monkey Librarian works the same way.

I went ahead and named my lovely new elephant Fifth. Hopefully he won't trample me.
