"I have never had that happen, Susan, and really have no idea.  I no longer use the baking strips and always use heating cores, baking at 340 degrees F.  "

Help, cake question!

Hi,I am a home baker and have been baking for years.  I bake from scratch and also love the boxed WASC and all their additional varieties.  This past weekend I baked a WASC (cake mix version), 3 of them, 10x3, with the Wilton cake strips around pan, tested using thermometer (205 degrees).  One of the cakes just split in 3 or 4 sections.  I have never had that happen before.  Thankfully I had the other 2 cakes and was a 2nd cake I was making for same party, so I was able to get away with what I…See More

Elisa Strauss will judge the fashion theme cake contest entries.

All items for decorating need to be made from an edible material other than a dummy as the base of the cake, if desired.

Only one entry per person, and only one photograph allowed to be submitted per person.

Your cake must have a titlea descriptive caption stating what methods were used, and what materials were used for the decorating, and the tag number fashion15.

You may not have any previous ‘favorites’ already on the photo used for the contest.

Do NOT place the tag number in the title of your cake, and Do NOT place the letter F with your tag number. This is something that the moderators do in order to ‘Feature’ your photo in the contest, and if you place this along with the tag number, it could be ‘assumed by the ‘moderators’ that your picture has already been featured and you could miss out on the contest. The letter in itself only lets the moderators know that we have done the proper steps in adding your photo, and is a clue to the other moderators that a picture has already been Featured.

Entries must be uploaded by midnight EST on September 1st.  Voting ends at 11pm EST on September 6th. The top ten cakes will be determined by the number of people selecting it as their favorite with the favorite button.   Winners will be announced on September 8th.

Read through all of the rules carefully. If any field has not met the criteria of the rules, your cake will not be entered into the contest. If you notice that your cake has not been featured within a few days after submission, go back and reread the rules again and make sure that you have followed the rules properly. Make any corrections needed at that time. If you  are unsure of anything, add a comment onto this discussion and one of the moderators will see it and respond.
