Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

Black & White Cake Contest:

Enter your Black & White Cake by Sunday, March 25th for a chance to win the Stargazer Lily dvd from Design Me A Cake. 1st and 2nd place winners will each receive this dvd.

Edna de la Cruz has been interested in creating beautiful things with her hands all her life. She began as a Fashion Designer doing fashion shows in Central Florida. 

Over ten years ago, she decided to try her hand at cake decorating.  She took basic classes with Wilton and fell in love with the art.  Edna worked at a custom cake shop as the Wedding Cake Designer. Some of her work and tutorials have been featured in magazines like Cake Central Magazine and American Cake Decorating Magazine.  Today, she not only designs Wedding Cakes, but she teaches both through her instructional DVDs and in classrooms throughout the country.

Edna has been invited to be a judge at different Cake Competitions including the prestigious Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show (OSSAS) run by the famous Kerry VIncent. You can see examples of her work,  free tutorials and find her DVD's at her website Design Me A Cake. She recently won on an episode of Food Network's Challenge.

How To Enter:

Add the photo to your profile (not the forum). Photos must include a description of the materials/techniques used to make your cake.   Only cake entries will be accepted - no cupcakes, cake pops or cake balls. Cakes that do not fit the theme will not be entered.

The photo title (required) will be a suitable title for picture, but it may not remain a string of numbers associated with a file name on your computer. To enter the contest, add the TAG  304 to your picture. 1 entry per person and 1 photo per entry. All entries will be featured at the top of the photos page. (This is a manual process, so please be patient).

The top ten cakes will be determined by the number of people selecting it as their favorite with the favorite button.  Voting will take place from Monday, March 26th to Friday, March 30th. The top ten cakes
will be displayed on Saturday, March 31st. The judges will vote from April 1 - 3. The winners will be posted on Wednesday, April 4th.

Please do not solicit votes or your entry will be disqualified.

Hi Denise, Could you please add this photo to your profile page. We can't enter it into the contest from here. Thanks.

Does the winner receive the Dvd and tools or just the dvd?

My profile photo is a black & white cake.  How do I tag it?

That was my question too and I finally figured it out.  You need to go into your personal profile and add the black and white photo just like any others you'd add to your album - when you do - the box requesting the tag number and place where you can insert a description pops up.  The contest cake doesn't have to be your profile photo - just needs to be added to your photo album.  You had the same question I did.  So glad I could help.

Thanks!  I thought it had to be our profile picture.


Hello, I just added a white and black photo, but I don't know where to tag?



I found it!! :)

I've uploaded my black and white cake picture to my profile page, how do I enter the contest?

When you upload a photo, a box appears asking for the TAG number.  Put in TAG304 and then the description of the cake then when the system sees TAG304 it realizes that this picture belongs in the black and white contest.  Several of us are assuming that you need to upload your main profile photo, but you don't.  Just upload it like any other photo and the box will appear.


How soon after we upload our picture for the contest does it appear for entry??
