Yes you may.



Does your one in progress picture need to be of the whole cake or can it just a be a picture of one element like the competitor making flowers for it?

The progress photo is simple so we can see that you are creating a cake for the competition, so it can be you working on any element of you cake or even working on the cake as a whole. It’s just to prove this is new work.



What is a blind judging?

Blind judging is when the judges do not know whose work they are judging, this helps to keep things fair. No favouritism or influences will affect the judging process. The Judges will ONLY receive the picture of your completed cake to judge.



If it’s a blind judging why do you ask for a picture of the artist with their cake?

Judging will be done blind, the judges will only receive the full image of your work, not the progress image or the image of you with the cake.

The image of you with the cake is for announcing the winners. We want to post the picture of the winner on social media.



Should all watermarks be removed?

Any work that is watermarked will not be sent to the Judges and disqualified.



Can I use royal icing on the cookies?

Yes you may.



In the cookie category do you want one cookie or a set of cookies?

We want one cookie OR one cupcake. We need the judging to be able to focus on ONE design.



Can I post my progress work on social media?

No work may be posted on social media since this is blind judging.

When the competition is over and winners are announced you may post your work.



How will judging work?

The Judges will receive a criteria sheet and each work will be given a mark out of 10.

We will then combine the score each judge had given the showpiece and that will be the piece total score.

The highest score will be the winner.
