A Lot On Your Plate

It’s That Time Again! A Lot on Your Plate’s Next Bake-off Category Is …

It’s that time again!

This month’s A Lot on your Plate’s “Use What You’ve Got” Category is: Cake!

Cake Cake Cake Cake Cake Cake

Cake!

How It Works: Simply, leave a comment below with a link to one of your cupcake recipe’s that you have chosen to enter into the bake-off.  The recipes entered will be judged on simplicity (prep time, active time, ingredients, etc…) and the photo of the finished product, itself.  The recipe will NOT be based on the quality of the photo.  (1) winner will be chosen, but all will be recognized.  The winning cupcake recipe will be posted in its entirety, photos, links and all, and baker will be notified and will receive a prize hand-picked by yours truly. All bloggers that submit a recipe will be acknowledged in the winner’s post with a link to their recipe entered, minus the photos and the prize.

The beauty of this bake-off is that it’s ”use what you’ve got”.  I realize that people live busy lives and might not have the time to bake a new recipe from scratch for a bake-off, so you can use one of your old posts to enter (or a brand new one if you feel up to it and have the time).
