BabyCakes NYC Launches Cupcake Cake Art of the World contest

From the latest BabyCakesNYC newsletter and their blog:
It’s real easy: Make a cake using the BabyCakes mixes and frosting and decorate it with whatever Spring-inspired splendor you can imagine—there are no rules limiting your creative hankerings. Then, by April 19th, send a picture of this masterpiece to, along with your name, city and state, and what you are calling your cake. You can then consider yourself entered in the inaugural BabyCakes Cake Art Contest of the World! (If you want to send a photo of yourself as well, cool!)

We’ll set up an online gallery where your friends and loved ones can vote your cake into prize territory. The first place winner will receive a $100 BabyCakes gift certificate, both BabyCakes cookbooks, and an official BabyCakes apron exactly like those that the bakery bakers wear. There are also prizes for 2nd and 3rd place winners, because that seems fair.

BabyCakes has locations in New York City's Lower East Side, Los Angeles and Downtown Disney® Marketplace at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Orlando, Florida. Visit for more information, and visit their online store where you can buy gluten free cake mix, frosting and more. And from their blog, a baby and cupcake photo I couldn't resist:

Here you go, the magical foundation of the cakes we make at the bakery, consisting of garbanzo-fava bean flour, rice flour, potato starch, arrowroot, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and xanthan gum. All you need to have in the cupboard is: vanilla, oil, agave nectar, and applesauce (preferably unsweetened).
