Click through any of the thumbnails to see the larger versions, and any extra pictures when available. You can also see them all side by side on the bake off page.

And make sure you follow the main links to the App Store to see how the entries compare to the real icons :).

The Prizes

There are a lot of promo code prizes, so each of these guys is going to walk away with a big stack of Apps. There’s also the 4 iTunes gift card prizes… but, since there are 5 people, we’ve decided to add another $15 gift card to the prize pool to make sure everyone gets one of those too. See the bake off page for full details of all prizes.

Who wins?

We’ll have our own picks, and a panel of judges to consult, but we’d like to know what you think too. Who do you think should be crowned this year’s iPhone App Cake champion? Post your choices here in the comments, or using twitter, tweet something like “Hey @appcakes, the king of iPhone App Cake is: xxxx”.

We’ll announce the winners and send out the prizes later this week.



  1. The Jabeh cake looks like the only one eatable to me, hahaha…

  2. I really like songbird’s Mission Deep Sea cookie!

  3. Songbird has the best by far lol

  4. I like Songbird’s Mission: Deep Sea Cookie!

  5. To songbird
    The Deep Sea Cookie is sick! Good job designing it!

  6. Hats off to Benedetti for the Jabeh cake.

  7. Songbird for the win! His Mission: Deep Sea cookie is my favorite. 🙂

  8. songbird’s deep sea cookie! love the cocoa puffs if thats what it looks like it is!

  9. Songbird’s Mission: Deep Sea cookie is definitely the best. Really creative and delicious looking.

  10. I really love Songbird’s Mission: Deep Sea cookie! Great job

  11. I like the blue cookie with the turtle. It is really clever, took me a second to realize there was a turtle! Looks a lot like the symbol of the actual game.

  12. For me the Blocks Classic brownie with it’s array Tooty Frooties and 100’s and 1000’s is awesome but it’s pipped at the post by the chocolicious Jabeh cake with the turquoise lemon jelly slices!

    All of them do a great job of representing their respective iphone apps so it’s good to see everyone will get a prize.

    Anyway, congrats to whoever is crowned the ultimate winner and I hope their makers enjoyed scoffing them down after taking the pictures! 🙂

  13. Here are my votes:

    5th Songbird (I like Deep Sea only)

    4th Tim for Blocks Classic (I like these colourful candies)

    3rd Cathy (for nice 4 cookies and the big one :))

    2nd Stan (I don’t know I would be brave enough to taste it but the idea is great ;)).

    1st undoubtedly chocolate cake from Benedetti (I WANT THAT CAKE !!!!!)

  14. 5th – Songbird: Like Agnes, I only liked the Deep Sea cookie, but it isn’t too amazing either.

    4th- Tim: Colorful, but isn’t too simple of an app icon.

    3rd- Benedetti: I know I’m going against the crowd right now, but honestly, the app icon is way too simple to be a number 1 (too little effort on designing it, I say) and the colors aren’t too accurate.

    2nd- Cathy: Cathy made many average-good cookies and a cake, and they weren’t too polished. BUT- This is an amateur’s contest- It’s not supposed to look like a pro made it, and a pro shouldn’t be making them. At least she challenged herself making app icons that were more difficult than squares, arrows and wands.

    1st- Stan: I’ve checked the icons themselves, and they are DIFFICULT to create. Yet, Stan did a great job recreating it. I especially loved zombie pizza, because I love the squid tentacles and how he used them. It didn’t really look professional, but again- IT’S NOT SUPPOSED TO LOOK PROFESSIONAL. The totemo cake’s colors weren’t the most accurate, but again, it was a complex design compared to the other icons.

    And oh yes, I love CAPS. :p

  15. The Jabeh cake is the best one. The design looks nice and professional (perfect arrows!), and it’s the only one I want to eat.
