I hope it's ok to post this, if not I'm very sorry and please let me know.
The contest will run until October 31st. Winners will be announced November 1st!.
We are also looking for sponsors. If you know of anyone that would like to hear more about this please have them contact me.
We have tested different things and you learn with each new thing you try. One thing we can't control is email invites. No system is going to be perfect and with so many participants, you aren't going to spot each discrepancy. Part of it is just hoping people have a conscience - something we have no control over.

I understand what you are saying. This was the first time we did voting on facebook and I agree. I just assumed everyone had facebook pages, so maybe facebook isn't the way to do the voting. We use to hold the voting on our site, but people found a way to manipulate the system and they would keep voting for their friends cake. I am open to suggestions on how voting should be done or how we should hold future contests. Please if you have any ideas, please do share with me.
