Who Takes the Cake? August is Open!! YAY!!
I almost forgot to post the contest this month – I just completely let it slip my mind, but my friend Susan reminded me, so here it is!! Are you ready for the theme?
It’s Back to School!! This theme could be interpreted in so many ways… things to do with arts/crafts, paper, teachers, an apple, sports, teams… you get the idea! If you have any cake that you can squeeze into this theme – I’d LOVE to see it!
That cake above is one I did for a retired teacher’s 80th birthday, and the one below was also for a teacher:
I’ve also made some school -themed cakes for cheerleaders and books for a graduate of law school…
Or graduation… although that’s sort of “end of school” instead of “back to school” but ya know… whatevs!
I will keep the widget open for 7 full days so that you can call 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!
PLEASE NOTE: YOUR CAKES WILL NOT APPEAR WHEN SUBMITTED – ONLY THOSE CHOSEN TO BE VOTED ON WILL BE PUBLISHED NEXT WEEK!
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 gift card for (1) Free Craftsy Class! Any class you want… it’ll be YOURS if you win! (Craftsy is not affiliated with this giveaway/contest in any way … this prize is completely sponsored by yours truly!)
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 August 18, 2015 – August 24, 2015. Voting will begin August 25, 2015 and end on August 31, 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!
