Calendar Cakes - October

Calendar Cakes Challenge

October's Calendar Cakes Challenge - Halloween!

Mwah ha ha! We just couldn't resist a Halloween theme for this month's calendar cakes! 

We're expecting some bloody good entries including some treats using your favourite baking tricks. You're all an imaginative bunch but you face some stiff competition. Up for a challenge? Of corpse you are... Witch bake will you enter? I'm sure they'll all be wicked, make no bones about it! Here's some brain food...
  • Halloween decoration
  • Gruesome colours
  • Gross names
  • Halloween flavours 

Please remember real severed body parts do not constitute a cake, and will therefore be banned. There are laws agains that kind of thing... 

What is Calendar Cakes?

Fancy a new challenge? Something that gets into the spirit of current events? You read our minds... I have teamed up with one of my favourite bloggers, Laura from Laura Loves Cakes to create a brand new blogger challenge. The idea is to link up all the wonderful seasonal things we make throughout the year to form a wall of wonder every month. 

How will it work?

The latest ‘Calendar Cakes’ challenge will be posted on the 1st of every month and will run until the 30th of that month, after which a round up of your goodies will be posted. We'll be hosting alternately, so watch out for our posts at the beginning of each month when we will also set the theme. Once you've decided what you're making...
  • Post your entry on your blog and include the ‘Calendar Cakes’ logo (just copy and paste the bad boy in!)
  • Add 'Calendar Cakes' as a label on your post.
  • Follow Dolly Bakes and Laura Loves Cakes' blogs using the Google Join this Site button.
  • Add links on your site to your hosts Dolly Bakes and Laura Loves Cakes
  • If you don’t have a blog you can still join in, just email us a picture and a bit of information about your bake.
  • If you're on Twitter, tweet us a link to your post @dollybakes and @lauralovesbakes - otherwise we won't see it! Use the handle #CalendarCakes. We'll retweet the pants off it!
  • Use the Linky Tool below to enter - use your cake as your thumbnail picture! It's dead easy...

Calendar Cakes Challenge Rules

  1. You can enter as many times as you like. Bake to your little heart's content.
  2. It can be your own recipe or one you found elsewhere (please just state where you found it).
  3. You can use old posts as long as you update them with the ‘Calendar Cakes’ logo and link back (see above). 
  4. If you want to enter your bake into other challenges too then please feel free.
  5. You must submit your Linky by 31st of October.

So…happy baking, we can’t wait to see what you come up and we’d be delighted for you to join us in our challenge!
