April Poll and May Announcement

Posted on 05/01/2012 by rhiannon_666
Hi Bakers,

First on the agenda, on behalf of the community I would like to welcome all the members that have joined us since bakebakebake was featured in LJ's spotlight. It's lovely to have you on board. We look forward to seeing your lovely creations and sharing tips and ideas with you.

For those new members who haven't done so yet, please take a moment to check out the rules on the user info page. I've had to reject quite a few posts from first time posters this week: I feel terrible enough rejecting posts usually, but I hate to do it to you even more when it's your first time posting here! So for anyone who isn't aware of them, both old and new, please familiarise yourself with them to ensure your experience here is as positive as possible.

If you're also unaware of our theme challenges or how they work, be sure to check out that section while you are there as well. We'd love to have some new people getting involved!

April's theme was caramel, and boy were we treated with some delicious entries for the occasion! I'm not sure if you guys are just improving every month, or if the drool-worthy posts are just wiping the previous month from my mind, but WOW. I'm glad we put this to a vote because there is no way I could choose a winner - I wish you all the best of luck choosing between these 5 entries:

Poll #1837459 April Caramel Theme Contest
This poll is closed.

Last but not least, for the month of May we are going to return to a regional theme. This month we'll be cooking SOUTH AMERICAN food.

Happy baking!

I sure don't envy you guys! Months like this one make me sooo glad I don't have to vote haha.

These all look awesome, but in the end I went for the caramel apple pie, mainly because someone who has the tenacity to work out how to bake in a TOASTER OVEN deserves kudos! And it looks tasty.

ARRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH! I made caramel brownies and caramel shortbread crunch bars for our contest and never cropped my photos and submitted my recipe. Is it really May already? Being a lazy procrastinator is... when I'll tell you what it is later when I feel like it.
