Open to everyone out there!
Submissions - Until March 31st - 11:59 EST
Voting From April 1st - April 15th
Winners (First, Second & Third Place) announced (based on votes) on May 1st.
(Read below for exact instructions on how to submit)
How It Works:
You submit a cake recipe (with or without a picture) to Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen - the submission must be marked with the subject:
Obviously if you have a photo it will look that much better and of course we will post the photo with your recipe. (We may have to make it smaller to put in the blog but do not worry!) This must be a CAKE recipe - no cookies or other such things. Remember without that subject line I will post the recipe as a normal submission and not as part of the contest.
- You may submit as many recipes as you care to write out on the computer.
- Do not send them as attachments - the recipe must be in the body of the email.
- Photos can be sent as attachments.
Submissions should have at least the following FOUR sections.
- Note from the submitter about the recipe. Story of how the recipe was created or why you make this specific cake. Humorous or serious.
- Ingredients - No shorthand! (Remember readers of Help! I Have A Fire In My Kitchen are not used to being in the kitchen!) Spell out teaspoon; spell out tablespoon etc. Number them as well.
- Exactly what pots, utensils, supplies are needed. Such as an example:
1. 9X11 Pan
Getting the Picture?
- Directions - Exactly how to make the cake as well.
(No mixing of meat and milk and the one must be able to obtain kosher ingredients!)
The above four sections are the least amount in your recipe. You are welcome to add anything you see fit as well! - It all gets posted.
It is posted in the blog and marked as Cake Recipe Contest Entry as well. On March 30th all submissions are closed.
Everyone is allowed to participate and vote. So tell all your friends about the The Great Cake Recipe Contest.
Upon closure of submissions the voting starts. Voting will last for 15 days - Until April 15th. Each person who wishes to vote will be asked to send in an email, with their real name and first, second and third choices. All votes will be confirmed with an email back to the person asking for confirmation. Unconfirmed votes will be discarded!
There is no catch. All prizes are supplied by moi. Voting is open to all readers of the blog (not only to those who submit recipes).
Of course a special post and links will go up on April 1st. (No this is not an April fools joke! Sheesh!)
