  1. Am I participating in this cake challenge? -Stephanie

  2. You should since you are basically a pro cake baker and decorator!

  3. Looks like the perfect cake for someone's birthday!! :)

  4. Hey, how about this! I created this cake, so I want everyone to post their photos. I will make a Pinterest file and whichever cake gets the most likes after ten days wins four of my LUX soaps!

  5. Game on.........I mean bake on!

  6. I think the contest should allow you to choose whatever color you desire, would be fun to see it in other colors than just pink since I am doing one in yellow this weekend.

  7. I am totally game for a cake contest, unfortunately Pinterest may not be the best outlet for "like" counting. Pinterest randomly selects which pins make it to the main page of their site for everyone to see, not just your followers. So some pins may be viewable to hundreds, others will only be shown to your followers. Just a thought. ~Anna
