Hey guys! Are you ready for the Who Takes the Cake? September Contest?! I’m so excited about this contest because the theme is related to my most favorite time of year!!
FALL!! This season and by and far my most favorite time of year. I love the cooler weather, building fires, roasting marshmallows, going to pumpkin patches and corn mazes… I love it ALL!
I don’t have a ton of Fall-themed cakes, but I pulled together the few that I had to share with you. Your cakes can be Fall colors or themes… pumpkins, scarecrows, cornucopias, sunflowers, leaves, corn mazes, hay rides, s’mores … you get the idea! They can even be my favorite color : PINK …
These can be birthday cakes, baby shower cakes, groom’s cakes…. you get the idea! You can also submit cakes, cake pops, cupcakes, and cookies! Any decorated sweet treat will do!
So… any questions? Leave me a comment!
I’ve said it before, but I’ll mention it again… it’s at my discretion (and the discretion of my team) what will qualify or disqualify a cake for the contest.
I just want you to understand that I’m looking for the best cakes! 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? September 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!
UDPATE: ENTRIES ARE CLOSED NOW – VOTING WILL OPEN SOON!
