It's that time again! - Kiwicakes is turning 8. And we're running our annual birthday cake competition.
Click here to see details of the 3rd birthday cake winner and here for the 4th birthday winner and here for the 5th birthday winner and here for the 6th birthday winner and here for the 7th birthday winner. I strongly encourage all past entrants to enter again, as when I think back on all the entries, it is with fond memories. I would have been proud to have any of the entries, as the winning cake - it has always been tough to pick a winner. Your entry need not be a tiered cake, as you can see from our 5th birthday winner - it was stunning and a single level cake.
I'm asking anyone interested to design a birthday cake for Kiwicakes 8th birthday party. This years theme is Trixie embraces social media (For those of you that don't know Trixie is the Kiwicakes kiwi) Your design ideas can be sent to me in any form, for example, a sketch or even a photo of a previous cake you've made, feel free to add written notes describing how you might alter the cake from your photo, or what elements in your sketch represent. The winner will be required to bake & decorate the winning design.
Be sure to include what flavour(s) the cake will be and the approximate size of finished cake. I'm a great fan of discovering new flavours of cake. Our previous winners have wowed me with some of their flavours.
Where to send it
You can email your ideas to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post to me snail mail at Kiwicakes, Po Box 4441, Kamo, Whangarei. Entries close June 7th 2014. Please include your telephone number with your entry.
There are no design limitations for your cake, you can make it as big or as small as you like. However there is a limit of $75 for cake ingredients. I felt by limiting the cost of ingredients, this would allow design talent to shine through, rather than lots of expensive ingredients. The winner will be reimbursed for ingredients, to the value of $75
The winner will be required to make bake & decorate the winning design, between June 13th and July 1st 2014 , at a time to suit them. I will then arrange for the cake to be collected from their home town for delivery to Kiwicakes at our expense.
I'll be loading the entries to the Kiwicakes blog (without the entrants names - so you can all remain anonymous) so that anyone interested can check them out.
