Hi all! I'm looking for a throwdown partner...for January maybe? Or February. I had one several months ago but she had to withdraw due to family problems so we never did do it.

If you are interested, check out my gallery and PM me and we can see if we think we'd be a good match.

Have a great week!

MissCupcake, I'm a newbie (started decorating about 6 months ago) and would be interested in a throwdown. You've got some lovely cakes & cupcakes in your gallery. Take a look at mine and let me know whether or not you think we'd be an okay match. If you agree, how do we go about this - rules, theme, etc?

What exactly is a throwdown? What are the rules? Is it explained here somewhere?

Id love to do a throwdown with you Kitagirl.....um....yeah right!! It would just be a massacre!

The cakes in your photos are so beautiful and I just hope than I can get half as good as you!

This does sound like a fun idea though.

based on the rules i read in another post (correct me if im wrong):
-each person will submit a theme for others to vote on
-pick a date for when the cake photo has to be submitted on
-once the photos have been submitted, the voting for others begin

you dont actually win anything, its all for fun icon_smile.gif

yes dmich, i would love to do a td with you. i guess we should each pick a theme and then let others vote to decide what the theme will be. im so excited icon_smile.gif

MissCupcake, I'm excited too! Okay, my suggestion for a theme is romance (and however you want to interpret this). I thought that since we'll probably be doing the TD close to Valentine's Day, we could work with something like that. What theme appeals to you?

Okay, MissCupcake, we're on! I'm so excited! February 1st deadline works for me.

I found this post that lists the throwdown rules. Someone please correct me if this is not the correct list.

Those are the current rules, read them carefully...The rules also dictate the dates for submission and you need to find a loser from the December TD's to host your TD. there were three. I think the post is in the general forum, Trixyniaz hosted them all.

Sounds good. I'll wait to hear back from you regarding someone to host the throwdown. Let me know if there's anything else I should do.

LilMissCupcake, I was just reading the rules again and it looks as though we would need to have our pictures submitted by Sat., Jan. 24th. Here's the way the rule is written:

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.)
