That's because of the way voting is set up. It'd be difficult to calculate your "score" if you had more than one image of the same cake posted. The way the winner is chosen is based on who gets the most "points" rather than who gets the highest rating. A rating of 1 is worth 1 point, 2 is worth 2 points and so on. At least that's the way it's been done in the past. You could post one picture that shows two views of your cake though.

I believe the rules are posted on the home page of the contest advertisement, up in the left hand corner of the page. Click in the Mother's Day Contest ad and check it out, I'm going there now to review them again...
if anyone finds them somewhere else please post!
Here is a quick question since the pictures are digital why couldnt you combine two pics of the same cake together? That way when you post your 1 pic you would have a top and a side view of the same cake. All it takes is a little cutting and pasting in your photo program.
