Cake Decorating Contest Winners

The results from our judges are in, and boy were there some close calls. I'm sure glad I didn't have to pick the winning cakes or it would have been an impossible task for me.

The truth is that there were so many cakes that could have easily won a prize, but unfortunately, they had to choose only three as the winners and this was definitely no easy task because there were so many beautiful cakes.

It really came down to a cake meeting all of the judging criteria. There were some really awesome cakes that would have won, but the descriptions were not complete and since the description was one of the criteria the cakes were judged on, they didn't make the final cut.

The winning cakes had it all, they were creative, original, they looked awesome and the descriptions/directions were good. There were actually several finalists whose submissions met all the criteria and that is what made the judging so difficult. Only three could win though, so without further delay here are the winners of our first ever cake decorating contest:

The third place prize of a $25 Amazon Gift Card was: Cheryl Swenson from Tennessee for her fabulous cake submission Days of Summer Cabin Cake

The second place prize of a $50 Amazon Gift Card was: Natasha Vaughn from Tennessee for her awesome cake submission Spongebob and Friends Cake

The First place winner of the $100 Amazon Gift Card was: Deborah Godfrey from Alabama for her superb cake submission Beach Inspired Wedding Cake

And, finally, the winner of the $50 Amazon Gift Card for the best description/directions was: Yasmeen Shariff from Malaysia for her very complete description and directions for her cake submission Daisy Daisy Wedding Cupcake

Congratulations to our winners! Their submissions were amazing! Most of all, thank you to everyone who participated whether it was by submitting your own cakes, or commenting on others. The contest was a huge success and many great cake decorating tips have been shared for all to discover.
