The oven mitts are coming off and bakers across America are ready for a throwdown. At stake?
The top title in a contest for the best-tasting holiday Bundt creation. It's no more nice Mr. Pillsbury, that's for sure.
The second annual Bundts Across America Recipe Contest is sponsored by Nordic Ware and runs now through September 1, 2007. To enter, bakers must create recipes that celebrate one of these popular holidays: Valentine's Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Independence Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas.
Each recipe entered will be judged on originality, taste, texture, visual appearance, use of ingredients and an essay describing how the entry represents, in its own special way, one of America's popular holidays. Here are more guidelines for the contest.
The 10 finalists will be treated to a fun-filled, expenses-paid weekend getaway to beautiful San Francisco, while the grand-prize winner will also receive $10,000 in cash! To enter, complete the entry form on www.nordicware.com.
Last year's Bundts Across American winner was from Stockton––Margo Murdock Murphy & her "Chocolate Cabernet Flavors Di 'Vine' Cake".
Ah yes, sweet tunnel o' fudge...
