Cake Decorating Contest Rules

 Cake Decorating Contest and Sharing Rules and Guidelines

You can either enter a competition ( if there is one currently running ) or you can simply share a photo of your delicious and beautiful creations just because :-) We all appreciate it and look forward to seeing your ideas and designs. 

Your cake can be one that you made 30 years ago or yesterday. As long as you made it and you can tell us about how you did it and lend a tip or two.


Cake Decorating Contest Rules

Your story and photos must be original and cannot be copied from another source.

READ AS MANY OF THE CURRENT ENTRIES AS YOU CAN TO GET IDEAS. Go to the spotlight page to see the top cakes and stories before you enter.

The main goal at is to help or inspire another cake decorator/DIY bride with our stories and cake photos.

You can have the most beautifully decorated creation but without a passionate story, that includes tips, instructions, a recipe, an idea or cake decorating techniques you will not have a chance. So don't be shy and please share something that will be helpful or inspirational to another visitor!
