Short. Tall. Big. Small. Show us your sweet side with cakes that make everyone happy. Maybe they're short and stunning, in the form of cupcakes. Or perhaps square is cool and rectangular spectacular. From sheet cakes to birthday treats, we want your best recipe.
To enter, simply send us your very own cake or cupcake recipe and include that special frosting or filling that makes it extra special. Aim for 12 ingredients or fewer and you could win $500—and claim sweet victory! (Winners will be announced in a future issue.)
Show us your best original recipe in these categories:
- Great Cakes. Make it a celebration cake, a bake sale beauty or a 9-by-13 pan of joy. Or show us your best bet for the birthday boy or girl. Don't forget the frostings—glazes, icings, flavorful fillings and a flourish or two, if you wish. Think happy!
- Cool Cupcakes. Do you make jumbo, regular or bite-size versions? This is your category. Show us your delicious bites with big flavor and a special flourish. Think sprinkles, candies, berries and beyond.
