It’s that time of year again – time for holiday treats, Christmas cookies, big retail sales and jingle bell-centric music. It’s also time for Baking Bites 2nd Annual Holiday Cupcake Contest! I kicked off this contest last year and enjoyed seeing everyone’s creative holiday entries so much that I’ve decided to make it a tradition.
All you have to do to enter the contest is take a photo of your favorite holiday-themed cupcakes and submit it to the Baking Bites Holiday Cupcake Contest Flickr Pool (accounts are free, though you do have to sign up). You can submit multiple entries and any holiday-themed cupcake is eligible, whether they’re homemade, made by a friend, seen at a coffee shop or from a favorite cupcake bakery. Look for anything festive, from reds, greens and blues in the sprinkles and frostings, or santas and snowflakes as decorations. Good photos of tasty cupcakes are what we’re looking for here. If you bake your own, or know the recipe that was used, link back to the recipe in the comments of your submission so others can try it out.
There will be one Grand Prize and one runner-up prize, both great gift baskets of baking related stuff! All submissions must be in by December 23rd at midnight, so that gives you a couple of weeks to track down every holiday cupcake you can find. Winners will be chosen by an anonymous panel of judges.
Update: This contest is closed until next year! A big Thanks to everyone who participated!
