Calling all cake pop makers… it’s time to get creative!

I’m excited to be hosting our 3rd annual KC Bakes’ Halloween Cake Pop Contest! For the last two years, the winner was determined by fan-vote only. But this year, we are doing something NEW! In addition to the Fans’ Choice award, we are having two Judges’ Choice awards.

The judges (three experienced cake poppers who will remain anonymous until after the winners are announced) will select one winner for each category:

Best Photography: Think outside of the box – heck, think outside of the kitchen! Try different rooms in your house, or even go outside. Play with different materials to create an entire scene to show off your pops. The best picture will win The Ultimate Box Sampler from BRP Box Shop.

Originality/Creativity: Reinvent a classic Halloween idea, or whip up something truly unique – make sure your pops stand out from the crowd. The most original/creative cake pop design will win a $50 gift certificate to shop online at Chocolate Treasures.

Contest submission is open for the next two weeks – so there is PLENTY of time to conjure up something spooktacular! Please follow submission protocol outlined in the contest rules when sending in your photo. The last day to turn in your photo is Friday, October 18.

We’ve received some really awesome submissions over the last two years (2011 entries, 2012 entries). Some of my favorites are below. I can’t wait to see what you all make this year!
