Alright, alright…. I’m running later than I hoped (thanks to a very, VERY busy few weeks) but finally … here’s Who Takes the Cake? April Contest!!
I had all hope that I would be bringing you this month’s contest with a brand new plugin (setup) but so far… I haven’t been able to pull it off. For now, this contest will be running with the same (not quite perfect) format.
The theme is SPRING!! This could be loosely interpreted to include SO many cakes… pastels, flowers, birds, butterflies, sunshine, bees …. so many ways to go!
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 also submit cookies, cupcakes, cake pops… all the sweets qualify!
And the prize?? Well this month I’m going to be giving away a set of cookbooks/cake books from my personal collection! (Picture coming soon)!
Okay? Okay! Let’s go!!
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!)
Submission dates are April 13th – April 20th, 2015. Voting will begin April 22 and end on April 29, 2015, 11:59pm CST. This month’s contest is open worldwide!
Please note: Uploading your photo might take several minutes – please refresh your page to see if your cake appears. Also, this contest may not work on all mobile devices…. it’s the one problem that we can’t get rid of.
The winner will be announced across social media and I will feature that cake the following month in a post of it’s own!
Are you ready?? Enter your cake below! You should get an email confirmation within an hour or so letting you know that your photo was successfully submitted!
Voting is open here!
