Can you bake a Windows Phone cake?

Can you bake a Windows Phone cake?

A new contest makes winning a Windows Phone a piece of cake-literally. The rules are brief. Simply bake a cake inspired by Windows Phone (how about a slice of Metro UI?) and submit it to the official Facebook page of the contest which is Windows Phone Cake Contest. Then you sit back and let the voters judge which cake wins. Pictures can be submitted through May 30th and voting runs through June 6th. The top three vote-getting bakers will win a new Windows Phone.

Microsoft's Michael Stroh said that The Windows Phone Blog had been receiving so many cakes that they decided to turn it into a contest. Sweet. As for which Windows Phone model will be awarded as the prize, the blog said that they would work with the winners to give them a model based on each winner's current carrier. The beauty of a cake contest like this is that taste doesn't count, so even if you can't compete with Betty Crocker, you still might be able to whip up a new Windows Phone.

Sorry, meant to thumbs up.
Also, even though WP is way too locked down and lacks too many features for me, I'd like one for free to play around with.

It would suck unless you're on AT&T or T-Mobile, at least until the WP8 phones get to Sprint and Verizon. A vintage HTC Arrive / Trophy or a Nokia Lumia / HTC Titan II?
