Successful CrEATions

After a really busy fortnight, I've decided to post a thourough update! Last night the crEATe Cake expo was a sweet success! We had a really fab turn-out, as well as some amazing edible sculptures. Thank you to Laura at Exhibitions and the OverwhelmingFilm Night guys for all of your organisational help! (Work above by Mahala LeMay)
The lucky winners of crEATe 2009 are as follows:

Hilary Grant, a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design won First Prize, with her Weetabix Berlin Wall entitled, Looking For Freedom, a witty tribute to David Hasslehoff's involvement in its crumble (pardon the pun!)

Second Prize went to Duncan of Jordanstone Students- Rose Hendry, Ailidh MacGregor and Katie Mason, with their sugar-laden, "It's Not a Cake"

Janet McAughtrie stole Third Place with her Luscious Lemon Cake, complete with Lemon protesters and pastry placards.

Thank you also to our Panel of Judges: Gillian from Dundee's Parlour Cafe; DOJCAD Gallery-Textiles graduate Mahala Lemay, and DOJCAD student and member of the OverwhelmingFilm night, Neil Ogg.

CrEATE Prizes

For crEATe 2009, we have been lucky enough to have had a fantastic prize donated by the wonderful Tunnock's, in Uddingstone. Originally a bakers, Tunnock's pride themselves on the highest quality confectionary over generations.
Mr Tunnock has donated a selection of Tunnock's biscuits so vast, it can only be described as a years supply! So if you'd like to be in for a chance in winning, complete an entry form (available in the panel on the right) and return it to the supplied email address asap.
Thank you again to all of the folks at the Tunnock's Factory for their help!

An Official Hello!

I'd like to announce an event which I'll be organising on the 10th of December 2009, in the Cooper Gallery, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. It's called crEATe 2009 and it combines my all time favourite two things: Cake and Art! There's an OPEN CALL for submissions (You don't have to be a Student of the University of Dundee) of Cakes and Edible Sculptures. All entries will be exhibited and judged by a panel of "Experts"! There'll be prizes for winners, and most importantly, the chance to eat the art.

As well as the Cake Competition, Duncan of Jordanstone's Overwhelming Film Night are screening the fantastically gruesome Delicatessen, along with exhibiting a collection of the group's film posters. DJCAD's Cooper Gallery will be transformed into a mini "Cinema" (with free popcorn, of course) to complete the night.
