With spring just around the corner and St. Patrick’s Day happening this month, I thought it would be fun to have a color theme for this month’s contest and the color… GREEN!! As the leaves begin to bud, the grass begins to come back, and clovers & leprechauns peeking out everywhere – green seems like a good choice, huh?
So, if you have a cake that qualifies for the “green” theme – I’d love for you to enter it in this month’s contest!
Don’t misunderstand – you don’t have to have an actual “spring” or St. Patrick’s Day sweet to share… green just needs to be the main color (or one of the main colors) for your cake!
In fact, I don’t have a ton of cakes that qualify for the green-theme myself, but I’ll show you what I’ve got:
A School Spirit Basketball 13th Birthday Cake done is school colors… green & black!
I will keep the widget open for 7 full days so that you can all get your pictures submitted! And then once the submission period is closed, at least 12 cakes (or other sweets) will be chosen for voting (possibly up to 24) and readers will have ONE WEEK to vote and choose their favorite!
You can click here to the “Who Takes the Cake?” FAQ page for all the details but here are the highlights:
- One submission per person per month and it must be your photo that you took of your cake (ie., no professional photographer photos unless you are a professional photographer). A link is required to a place where the cake is already published (your Facebook page – make sure it’s a public photo, Flickr, CakeCentral, your blog or website, etc.).
- After submissions close, at least 12 of the best cakes/photos will be chosen and posted in a separate post where my readers (and your friends and family and…anybody else) will vote for their favorite.
- I will open up submissions for one week (7 days ONLY), then the voting will be open for 7 days and the winner will be the photo with the most votes at the end!
- OH – and sign up for my email newsletter here to get all of my posts and cake contest announcements in your inbox! (that’s not a requirement… just a happy suggestion!)
PLEASE NOTE: YOUR CAKES WILL NOT APPEAR WHEN SUBMITTED – ONLY THOSE CHOSEN TO BE VOTED ON WILL BE PUBLISHED NEXT WEEK! ALSO, ALL PHOTOS WILL BE PUBLISHED ON FACEBOOK AND “LIKES” WILL COUNT AS ADDITIONAL VOTES , SO BY SUBMITTING YOUR PHOTO, YOU’RE GIVING PERMISSION TO PUBLISH ON FACEBOOK.
You can also submit cookies, cupcakes, cake pops… all the sweets qualify!
