I am posting the rules that Lea got together for us icon_smile.gif


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. Any member may challenge another CC member to a TD. The TD will all begin and end on the specified dates so all pictures of completed cakes can be uploaded for judging at the same time. This will make it easy for all CC members to judge each TD photo, and, all winners can be announced at the same time.

2. Throw Downs will begin on the 1st day of every month. They will end in exactly 3 weeks from the start date, at which time your pictures will be sent to the person designated to upload them for you and your challenger. You will have until 3:00 pm CST on that date to get your pictures sent to the designated picture poster of your particular TD.

3. You may submit up to 3 photos for judging.

4. Fondant, Gumpaste, Sugarpaste and/or Buttercream, you pick your mediums to decorate your cake with. TD challengers may use any decorating medium combinations they wish as long as it is edible.

5. Loser is the poster of the new throwdowns. This means the loser of a TD will upload pictures for the subsequent judging.

6. No Sheet cakes allowed.

7. Throwdowners should be as equal in decorating skills as possible. If you are a TD winner please try to be fair and choose a member with "equal to or greater than" decorating skills you possess.

8. No plastic, metal or other non-edible purchased Toys on cake of any kind. Everything must be edible with exception of the cake board and supports.
Competitors may use wires,straws, and dowels for supports. These supports should be hidden in the cake and not visible by viewing the cake.

9. The 2 TD Challengers will choose the theme of cake to be designed.

10. "Any non-winning CC member may only participate in a Throw Down 1 time in a 12 month period." "Only the current winner of a Throw Down will continue on" Once this winner loses he/she must wait 12 months before participating in another TD".

11. "Everything on the cake, including the cake, has to be crafted and decorated entirely by the cc member participating in the TD". No help from anyone else. Exceptions; You may have help with the cutting of cake boards or structual support.

12. Only 2 members may compete in any particular Throw Down. However, many Throw Downs can be going on at one time. A TD isn't a TD if there are more than 2 competing a TD.

13. Any shape pan for bottom layer but can NOT be larger than 12".

14. Cakes are to be no more than 2 tiers or stacks.

Hey wait, it says "2 more contestants found" for May...is there a thread somewhere with an 2 original contestants? I have been away quite a bit lately, just wondering if I missed that one.

It would be great to always link to any new throwdowns from the past threads so that people who were involved (whether voting, cheering or just lurking LOL) in a prior throwdown know whenever a new one is posted. Whaddaya think? Of course that won't work when CC is buggy and we all get removed from our Watched Topics lists but heck one can try, right?! >>edited to add, I noticed this was done from CC Throwdown #1, it linked to TD #2, but the (sadly, cancelled) TD #2 doesn't have a link to the newest May TD. Is May #3??<<

May TD Is number 3 but remember there can be multiple TD's at one time.. but just 2 people per throwdown ... icon_smile.gif

I'll have to get back to you all about this as it is GROWING AND GROWING icon_smile.gif
