10 (who?)
Firstly I would like to thank everyone who took part in my Christmas baking contest!
Being Christmas I wasn't sure I would get many entries so receiving 19 was a great surprise! I hope you all had as much fun baking as I did holding and judging the contest. 

For those wondering if I will be holding any more contests in future.  It won't be for a very long time as not only will I be moving house once this year, I will be moving twice!

Onto the winners!

1st Place Overall Winner

100 points+journal feature


Christmas Igloo Cake by sparks1992
This was a beautiful entry! Very festive, the detail was wonderful, the skill brilliant and over all looks so cute! I also loved the fact so much time, effect and high quality was taken in making this as a gift to sparks1992 sister rather than a commission.

Best Photography

75 points+mini journal feature


32.1 by absentiae

What I loved about this photo was, well everything! The cupcakes are so pretty and perfect as is the composition of the whole photo.  The use of white to make the photo feel cold and snow like.  The same goes for the gloves and being red has that extra festive element.

Most Creative Entry

75 points+mini journal feature


Dancing gingerbread men in snow globes!?! Need I say more! A brilliant creative take of your usual gingerbread men! The precision in detail of these cookies are incredible from the shadows to the shine and the amazing woodwork detail! When first seeing this entry I had to have a closer look to make sure they were actually cookies and not a painting or digital art!

Honorable mentions

It was tough choosing just three winners, there were so many great entries in presentation, skill, creativity, flavour and determination! (Yes maytel that last one means you! Crazy woman baking whilst possibly giving birth at any moment!) It was so tough I even had to consult my best friend Shaami for guidance!
