Friends, oh, friends. It’s been a hard week around here. Between starting back to homeschooling on Monday, starting a new (HUGE) home project yesterday, testing new cake recipes for an upcoming order (many, many fails), and then blogging… this girl is worn out. And I haven’t even done my cake orders yet. Oy!
And when it comes to blog work, all of you blew me away with your 194 entries for the August cake contest! Narrowing it down to only 24 finalists was pure torture. I enlisted the help of 9 other friends and it still took us forever to make eliminations.
When I finally got it down to about 40, I just wanted to keep them all! But I couldn’t… so after looking at them over and over and over again… we have the Top 24!! For those of you who entered but were not selected – please know that the entries were phenomenal this time! There were just so many amazing cakes (and other sweets) to choose from so we had to get super picky!
Finalist or not, thank you all so much for entering the contest – it’s always fun seeing all of your gorgeous work and I appreciate you reading here at Rose Bakes!
And the prize? The winner this month will receive a $25 Amazon Gift Card!
Are you ready to vote and choose a winner? Keep reading…
WHO TAKES THE CAKE? AUGUST VOTING IS OPEN
HERE ARE THE TWO WAYS EVERY PERSON CAN VOTE!
#1 Simply click on the pink “VOTE” button below the picture of the cake/sweet you like best and your vote is counted. Do you want to see the photos larger? Click on them and a new window will open with a full-size photo! You vote by clicking the heart in the upper left corner and you can use the arrows to scroll through all the pics. Every person is allowed only one vote per cake, for the duration of the contest! (no longer can you come back and vote again every day). However, if you’re in love with a particular cake, please share and tell your friends to vote too!
#2 Click over to Facebook and “like” your favorite photo there and every “like” will also count as a vote! And again… share that photo with your friends and ask them to vote too! The contest album is HERE.
Voting will begin NOW and be open for 7 full days (plus a little bit 😉 ): August 10 – August 17, 11:59pm CST.
Note: it may take a minute for the full voting widget to load… please be patient. Also, the voting widget may not work on all mobile devices and I have no control over that!
