bake my cake 2013: cast your vote!

. . .

It’s here. Voting day! I’d like to thank Brandi, Maggie, Eliza, Lan, Mellissa, Shannon and Katherine for making my graduation extra special. It takes baking bravery to enter a contest like this, and I appreciate the time each of you put into these absolutely amazing creations. Tomorrow – graduation day – I’ll take a little piece of each of you with me. (As in: I’m going to put cake in my pockets in case the ceremony runs long.)

People of the interwebs: have you decided? Do you know how you’re going to vote? If you need a little review, click on any of the photos to see the original post on each cake.

As in past competitions, voters will be allowed one vote per interweb device. Yes, I get that means rich people with multiple smart phones will screw you over. But I’m going to have to ask you to get over it. Or go around your village and vote on every single computer you can find. If you find a shortcut in the voting system, have at it. All’s fair in war and buttercream!

I encourage competitors to use any means possible to win. Hand out flyers. Email yer family. Blog it, tweet it, facebook it. And tell your supporters to do the same. Remember, it’s a freakin’ popularity contest. Like college! You’re playin’ with the big kids now. Now, go forth and use the interweb the way it was meant to be used: for shameless self-promotion.

Voters, pick your favourite cake and cast your vote below!

Poll will close at 7 am AST (6 am EST) on Tuesday, June 18th, 2013. Repeat voters will be blocked by cookie and IP address. Polldaddy says this could be problematic for some voters. I’m really sorry if that is the case.

    I am totally going to vote on using every device I own because I really want Shannon to win. I mean, LOOK AT HER CAKE, PEOPLE!! If you’re not impressed by that, look at her blog detailing how to make that momofuko cake. That’s dedication. Maybe even more work and dedication than Movita put into baking school (no offense, MB–we all knew it was pretty dicey for you, what with all of your baking school antics and all). Sure, that bacon cake is nice. I mean, it’s BACON, for cripe’s sake, but Shannon has devoted three separate blogs to her cake AND has those amazing miniature pastries all over it. I can’t stop thinking about it. I think this is her year!
