It's the favourite time of year for cakers. It means hand-knit acrylic sweaters, church bazaars, Stove Top Stuffing, and, of course, apples. But since cakers don’t eat apples (at least not in our pies), we make crafts with them.
Announcing the first (and probably last)
Apple Head Doll Competition!
Simply make an apple head doll and email me the photo when it’s all dried up and wrinkly. I’ll post all the photos on Caker Cooking in late October and the public will vote the winner.
Note: the apple head dolls will be judged only on their heads, not their bodies.
The winner will receive a gift pack of four fantastic cookbooks from the friendly folks at Random House Canada, including Marshmallow Madness, Tiny Food Party, Real Snacks and Little Old Lady Recipes.
Well, an apple. And a knife. And a little time to dry out. Check out appledolls.org for step-by-step instructions on how to make one and to see some samples. I’ve also created an apple head doll Pinterest board to get your creative (apple) juices flowing.
If you’d like to participate (and, really, why let all those good apples go to waste?) simply email cakercooking at gmail dot com no later than Sunday, Sept. 23 at midnight to say “Count me in!” Then I’ll email you back with all the specifics. And although I probably won't get this many, I'm going to cap it off at 25 participants.
Yes, there are rules and regulations, so please read over those.
I'll be making an apple head doll, too. But I won't be in the competition. I wouldn't win, anyway. I'll be lucky if mine even looks human. But I'll document the progress of my apple head so you can follow the
