The God Save the Villain cake is a delectable treat that is sure to haunt your dreams.

The cake, which was entered in Threadless’ Threadcakes competition, is infused with cinnamon and took approximately five days to make and decorate. The design the baker based it on was the "God Save the Villain" tee. In her interpretation, though, she originally thought the red along the Joker's lip was dye from the icing. Adding a cupcake with a red frosting and giant bite taken out of it, Latimer added a unique twist.

The Threadcakes design was the perfect execution in detail and in interpretation. Through her work, Latimer has managed to add a unique twist on her Threadcakes entry.

Implications - Companies who offer unique design competitions have an advantage over others. By doing this, they create a public relations campaign that engages their fans and attracts a niche audience that would not necessarily be a fan of the work.
