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  407 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). If your photo has already been favorited, please upload the photo again. This is to create a level playing field.

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 Sunday, April 29th to Thursday, May 3rd. The top ten cakes
will be displayed on Friday, May 4th. The judges will vote from May 5 - 6. The winners will be posted on Monday, May 7th.

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

 

Congratulations, winners!

Where do we go to see all cakes in contest?  I also had a hard time writing a description on my profile pic.  I researched the FAQs and reviewed Teresa's response below but could not find it.  Made an album for the cake and was still featured but don't know if I entered it so others will find it to vote.

I've only entered once in the past and it seemed easy to put the photo into contest with description and also to find everyone else's pics.  Sorry to bother you but again I did try to find the answers.  Thanks!

Hi Mildred - the cakes for the contest are in the Featured section of photos.  Click on Photos in the tool bar at the top of the page.  You'll see a row at the top separate from the other photos - these are the featured photos in the contest.  Click "View All" just under that row and you'll see all the entries.  Hope that helps!

What is the latest to enter this contest?  Saturday by midnight??

Satuday, August 28th, midnight Eastern Time.

I'm afraid that many of the contestants did not completely read the How To Enter you posted above. Particularly the part where they were supposed to re-upload their photos if they had previously been Favored. While looking at all the entries I noticed that many of them had 6-10 Favors before the midnight deadline. Will they all be swept before voting to be fair to all of us that entered?

Thanks,

Rosemary 

Rosemary, as long as the favorites were placed on the photo right after when the contest was announced, then they are safe. It is when they submit a photo that has a bunch of favorites already attached to the photo prior to the announcement of the beginning of the contest, then they need to submit a different photo that has no favorites attached to it. We have been keeping a very close eye on them as they have come in and so far no one has had any favorites attached to the photo prior to when the contest was announced. By the way, your cake is just beautiful.

Linda,

Thanks for explaining. I didn't realize that we could favor them before the official voting started tomorrow. In others I've entered the favorite button is disabled until voting starts.

And thank you for the compliment! The cake didn't quite come out as I planned but I just ran out of time. To be honest I read the title in this thread and thought the deadline was from the 7th thru the 29th. But all is well and I squeaked by with 5 minutes to spare LOL! Have a great week.

Rosemary

Hi Everyone, I apologize for the delay, but I could not get internet access while away for the Great American Cake Show, so I got the emails out late to the judges. I would like to give them one more day to respond to me. Thank you for your patience.

Could all winners please send me your mailing address so Photofrost can send your prize out to you? Thanks.

Thanks Theresa and the entire ckae community for this opportunityand also for all the wonderful comments. Looking forward to  a great friendship and relationship. Thanks once again.

I apologize...

I just realized that when I had posted the 6th place cake, the post was too long and it did not save.

The 6th place winner is Sarah Deer
