Who Takes the Cake? July is Open!! YAY!!
Did ya’ll miss the contest in June? I missed having it but we were gone on (a nearly) 6000 mile road trip (that I’m way behind on writing about) and blogging was not my priority 🙂
But I’m BACK now and ready to roll with another Who Takes the Cake Contest??
I’ve been thinking on it for a few days trying to decide on a theme and finally… it hit me today: “Stars & Stripes”
Now stick with me here before you jump to any conclusions… of course I thought of it because here in the US, we’re about to celebrate our Independence Day – the 4th of July and all things Patriotic! With my recent Stars & Stripes cake on my mind, this seemed like a perfect theme.
But before you bail on me and think it’s got to be patriotic or red, white & blue… NO – it doesn’t. If I call it “Stripes and/or Stars”, would that help? 😉
I just thought I’d use that play on words and you can submit any cake you’ve made that has stripes (of any kind) or stars (of any color) or both!
Some of these I’ve made would qualify:
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 one of these really pretty Antique Silver Beaded Cake Stands! Isn’t it SO pretty?!?!
Every time I post a cake on that stand, I get questions about it, so I thought it would be fun to give one away!!
So this months winner will get one of those cake stands shipped right to your door!! Please note, if the winner is not in the US, I will instead substitute a $25 Amazon Gift Card.
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 July 3, 2015 – July 10, 2015. Voting will begin July 13 and end on July 20, 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!
