Please note the following important information concerning the contest:

1. If you think that you have already submitted your cake to the contest and you do not see it on this page (scroll to the bottom to see the entries): Cake Decorating Contest Entry Form, then chances are your photo of your cake did not come through. I have tried to contact you, but either you submitted the wrong e-mail address, you did not respond, or you did not submit your e-mail address. In that case, please contact me at or through the Contact Form on the site. I don't want to see anyone's cake get left out! This brings me to the next two points:

2. Winners will be notified by e-mail, so make sure you enter your e-mail address to be eligible to win and also to whitelist to be sure you are able to receive our e-mail and it does not go into your spam folder. Don't worry, your e-mail will only be used in case there is a problem with your submission or to notify you if you win and to send you your prize!

3. Enter your cakes now because as it gets towards the end of the contest, there is usually a rush of submissions and I may not have the time to contact you to ask for the photo etc. So get your submissions in now so others can comment on them (make sure to tell your family and friends too) and just in case anything were to go wrong, I will still have time to contact you (just remember to enter your e-mail address or I will have no way of contacting you if there is something wrong or if you win!).

4. If you are entering a wedding cake, anniversary cake, bridal shower cake or groom's cake, it should be entered at our new site Wedding Cakes Connection. Make sure you head on over there and take a look at the beautiful cake submission that have already been submitted to that site as well! Here is the Wedding Cakes Contest Submission Form (Again scroll down below the submission form to see the entries).

For all the details, go to our Cake Decorating Contest Submissions page and read all about it!

Hope to see all of your wonderful cakes soon!

My Absolute Favorite All Time Cake Recipe

I just added my absolute all time favorite cake recipe to the site. It is a chocolate peanut butter cake and it is simply yummy! and easy to make too. If you are short on time and want to make a great dessert, you can substitute a brownie mix for the brownie part of the recipe. You can get the new recipe here:

Brownie Peanut Butter Tiara Cake.

Hope you like it as much as I do.
