900x900px-LL-a44cb5e1_101h1750Congratulations to Inspiration Challenge winner Gonzuela! We were impressed by this cake that expresses the festive Chinese New Year so well, from the Chinese zodiac to the golden dragon and the fireworks shooting out the top. The striking combination of the quatrefoil shaped cake board and the tapered square tiers is enhanced by all the detail work in the borders.

We would also like to make several honorable mentions; Imaginarium, Ale Bake n FUNTimboSullivan and Toffee. Your entries were all so amazing, we couldn’t pick just one runner up.

As you know, the winning entry will be included in an issue of Cake Central Magazine. Thank you to all who participated in the challenge! You can check out all of the other entries here. If you missed your chance, don’t worry. Keep your eyes on the Cake Central blog for our next challenge, which will be shared soon.
