John Mayer Wants You to Get Your Holiday Bake On

Pop singer John Mayer, a guy whose not afraid to say what he needs to say, wants everyone to get in the holiday spirit. How should they show their seasonal cheer? By baking a cake. On his personal blog, Mayer has announced his holiday cake contest:

I will debut my first of several festive holiday cakes this Saturday night. I invite everyone reading this to join me in the simple joy of expression through baking, and to send me photos of your delicious creations. You think I'm crazy now, but once you apply the last dollop of frosting, or that finishing touch of icing, you'll understand that there's just no hiding from the feeling.

Mayer will choose the most beautiful cake and reward the baker with an autographed guitar. It's always fun to see a high profile celebrity show an interest in the culinary world and he's right: baking is a great way to get in the holiday spirit!

What do you think of Mayer's promotion of baking? Will you enter the cake contest?

My boyfriend and his roommate just did this last night. They both like John Mayer and play similar music on their own guitars. Their cake is pretty fantastic.

i can't say that i'm going to participate but i guess it's something new and different. He's always trying to be in the public eye for something or another.

Totally random, but I have to say I find his less freaky looking with less hair.

I think that man is super quirky, but quirkiness that leans towards baking... that's alright in my book. Not sure I'll enter, my frosting wielding skills are mediocre.

I think Frosty needs Wendy to give him a top hat. Maybe he can borrow one from T-pain. :ROTFL: Whatever, it's a wonderful idea, sure.

I don't think it gets more random than this! Still, I love the idea that a celebrity can get behind holiday baking. :D
