Hey Friends! Do ya’ll remember that contest I did last year for awhile? The Who Takes the Cake? Contest!? Well, it’s baaaaack!!
Things got so crazy last year and while I was in the middle of having my website redesigned along with the holidays and lots of other crazy stuff going on, I let the contest fall by the wayside.
So… let’s start fresh in 2016 and get this contest going again! The theme this month? LOVE!! I figure that way ya’ll can send your wedding cakes, anniversary cakes, Valentine’s Cakes (of course) and anything else that you feel like fits into the love category.
Ooooh, and you can enter any kind of decorated sweets… cakes, cookies, cupcakes or cake pops!
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 $25 Amazon Gift Card that you can use to buy anything you want! Cake Supplies… a new apron… or even just a big box of your favorite chocolate if you desire 😉 This is my favorite chocolate!! (Amazon 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 January 11, 2016 – January 18, 2016 . Voting will begin January 21, 2016 and end on January 27, 2016, 11:59pm CST. This month’s contest is open worldwide!
Please note: Uploading your photo might take several minutes – please check your inbox for confirmation that it was received. 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?? OKAY –
