Does anyone know if there is a specific theme for the contest? I know it has to be a wedding cake - but is it supposed to follow a certain theme? Like the Oklahoma show has a theme every year. I've read the rules page in the magazine like 20 times and I haven't found one???? Or can we just go hog wild crazy on the thing?! icon_razz.gif

As far as I can tell, there's no theme. I wish I had time to enter. I'd need until November to design something, much less put it together! I wish it had been announced earlier. Oh, well....maybe next year?

The OP mentioned the "magazine" in the first post, so my guess is it was an ad or an article in the CakeCentral magazine in one of the last issues.

We will be making an announcement to every one about it in a newsletter later today, and in my blog.

I am pretty excited about it! Once we make the announcement I will post a link in this thread for you.

The wedding cake of the year contest has only been advertised in the August and September issues of the Cake Central Magazine so far.

Why can only US residents participate? I don't mean to sound peevish, but I don't think that's fair as there are so many different nationalities here. birthday.gif

We had to limit the contest to US residents only because whenever you run a contest that has a prize this large, there are International "lottery" laws that come in to play. Because every country has it's own law on contests/prizes (aka "lottery") there was just no feasible way for us to include any country outside the US.

But our online contests are still open to everyone, anywhere.

I had the same problem for several days. I tried submitting from 2 other computers, and because of the weather (snowed in), I was not able to get to the post office to mail my entry either. icon_sad.gif So frustrating. I let the little arrows run the last time for more than 48 hours. icon_cry.gif
Any possibility that we will have another chance to post our entries? The roads are finally clear so I can mail or email or try the online entry again?
