I recently received this letter from the executive producer of a show called "Ace of Cakes".
They are putting out a book and wish to have some paper craft cake templates for their readers.
This is a great opportunity to get some exposure for your work and for our little community here.
The plan is to include a bunch of different papercrafts from various artists - and they can be a combination of your own design, and some of the ones we photographed for the book. There is no real deadline, maybe in two months or so? They shouldn't be too difficult, as a lot of kids will be buying the book - but there can be one or two ADVANCED papercrafts. The illustrations themselves will not be in the book per se, but included on a CD that's inside and people can print out as many as they like?
Here is the letter for more info:
Hey there, my name's Willie Goldman, co-executive producer of the tv show "Ace
of Cakes" on the Food Network, and I am a huge fan of the work features on
Was wondering if I could ask a favor. I'm currently writing a book based on our show, and
our plan is to pack it with lots of fun visual bonus content. So many of our viewers
are creative individuals (and a lot of kids), and we thing some sort of papercraft
content would be a blast. Right now we're looking around to see if anyone could
help us create some papercraft versions of some of the cakes featured on our show,
or seen on our bakery's website below:
We are looking for papercraft versions of cakes like these:
If you know of anyone who could help, could point us in the right direction, or
even post this notice on NicePapertoys, it would mean a lot. Thanks in advance
for any help you might be able to provide, and keep up the amazing work!
