Pints of Cake is a name that grew into an idea, that then grew into this collective. It all started with a simple request from Bambi Willow to a group of art students asking “Pub Crawl or Pud Crawl?” Answered with the what I thought was a witty response of “How about Pints of Cake!?"
With this was born an obscure name that met with an idea of creating a large creative blog like site that would bring together a collective of Artists, Writers, Illustrators, Filmmakers and other creatives. And with them bring their own personal twist and style creating a varied and different look at pop and art culture today.
With the name and aims of the site we have brought together content under the idea of taking something familiar (like Cake) and placing it in an unfamiliar way or measurement (like a Pint). We are not just creatives obsessed with cake and pints!
Our current and future team includes:
Adam Jeffs, Anya Hobbs, Bambi Willow, Ben Greet, Ben Herring, Beth North, Brendan Stokes, Brunez, Clare McCarney, Cluk Animations, Emily Birdsey, Fiona Marchbank, Francis Windram, George Pooley, Grace Shimmen Mooney, Hannah McCann, Hayley Brown, Hiten Shah, Izzy Brittle, Jade Diamond, James Story, Jamie Lewis, Jeff Maddison, Julia Brown, Lillybet, Luca Calabrese, Lydia Fothergill, Matt Broadey, Miranda Jones, Natalie Enright, Paisley Boyd, Paul Swift, Sammi Nock, Sophie Wright, Tim Holland, Rachel King.
The money raised through this Kickstarter goes directly into the domain name, hosting and general set up of the site so that we are able to create weekly content for you.

Risks and challenges
We aim to have the site running within the week of the Kickstarter ending, however we may come across some obstacles that could delay this, but we have a strong team working together and we aim to launch content live and on schedule.
We will keep everyone fully updated through our mailing list, twitter and facebook page.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
