Hey guys! Are you ready for another Who Takes the Cake? Contest?? I’m pretty excited about the Who Takes the Cake? May Contest and I super excited about the theme I settled on!
Okay… so May is MY month. It’s Mother’s Day month… it’s my BIRTHDAY month… it’s maybe the last month here in Mississippi where it’s still cool enough to breath, before the sweltering heat and humidity takes over and I lock myself indoors with AC & frozen drinks 😉
For that reason… the theme I chose this month is MY color…
So, if you have a cake or cookies or cake pops or cupcakes that has PINK on it – please enter it in the contest!!
OH… and before anybody gets their panties in a wad over the details (you know who you are – you’ve emailed and messaged me in the past with complaints!), it’s my contest, so the amount of pink required to be chosen is totally at my discretion! It doesn’t have to be a totally pink cake!! If I choose, it might only have to have one DOT of pink.
Okay – that’s probably not true – I’d prefer more than just a single DOT, but I just want you to understand that I’m looking for the best of the best cakes… and if they’re not completely pink, I’ll be okay with that! I’m looking for a beautiful cake with a pretty, clean background, good photography, and something that really catches my attention (see my full explanation here on the FAQ page).
Keep reading below to see how to enter…
Who Takes the Cake? May Contest
I will keep the widget open for 5 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 5 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!
