It’s the second week of the month – which means time for our ‘Cake of the Month Contest. This is our second month. Last months was absolutely amazing. We have about 30 gorgeous entries for our winter theme cakes and it was so hard to pick just 12.
It’s December so of course what else can we choose but – Christmas for our theme this month!!
So go head and submit your Christmas – Cakes, Cupcakes and Cookies not forgetting Cake Pops.
Yes you can submit them all. One entry per person. Upload form is below.
Here are just a few of the Christmas Cakes I have done in the last couple of years.
and of course my most recent Christmas Cookies which is also a tutorial (link below) – yes you can upload your cookies too!!!
What do we have for the WINNER this month?
How does an annual pro membership to Paul Bradford Sugarcraft School as a prize sound?
That’s worth £203/$299 per anum and you get a whole year free to watch all the tutorials on the site!! Ain’t that an awesome Christmas Gift?
You guys know I started my cake decorating journey with my very first subscription with Paul Bradford. So this is really close to my heart and I’m thrilled that they gave my contest such an awesome prize.
Tips for winning the contest?
- Upload the prettiest image of your cake. You can share just one image so make it good!
- Do not upload a close up of part of the cake. We need to see the whole cake.
- Upload cakes with clear clean background – cluttered and dull images will not be approved.
- Do not upload very large size photos they do not load, or people will skip your cake when voting.
- I will approve only images that are pretty, beautiful, eye catching and fit the theme for the final voting.
You can read more about the rules – terms and conditions here on this page – Cake of the month Contest Rules and Guidelines – but a few important to remember are.
- One submission per person – and it must be a photo of the cake you created. It must be a photo of your work, you took the photo.
If required you will be asked to submit a link of where you have published your cake as proof of your work.
- After all the cakes are submitted – I / me and my team (mostly sponsors) will pick 12 to 15 cakes for voting. I will post it on a new post where you will be allowed to vote. You are free to share your cake anywhere you want invite family and friends to vote for you.
- The voting will start 7 days after all the cake submissions are in. So we have 7 days to submit your cakes and then 7 days to vote. The cake with the most votes will be declared a winner.
- Remember only me and my team will decide who’s cake will or will not qualify in the final round for voting. If you cake in not included in this month no explanation will be given. It is always a tough decision for me. Please do not be disappointed – you can try again next month.
