Apple Head Doll Competition

Hello, internet people. I'm Mildred. The caker fellow asked me if I'd host his Apple Head Doll contest because he's too busy cooking something grey.

Below you'll find some new friends of mine and it's up to YOU to pick the winner. Voting will close next Sunday, November 4 and the winner will be announced on Monday, November 5.

The grand prize winner will receive a delicious collection of cookbooks from Random House Canada.

In the top right corner of the blog, you'll see a list of the apple head doll names. Simply vote for your favourite. You can vote as many times as you like and also for more than one apple head doll.

May the best head win! I'm off to have a piece of Gumdrop Cake.


1) Honey Boo Boo
Note from the apple artiste: Mine is called Honey Boo Boo because it was made from a honey crisp apple and it sucked.

2) Norbert "Bert" Birdie
Note from the apple artiste: A simple man in simpler times. Norbert "Bert" Birdie was a timeless classic even in his day. Women wanted him and men wanted to be him. Cool, self assured and in control. "Work hard, play hard." was his motto. He died of liver failure in 1947.

3) Monsieur Pépin
Note from the apple artiste: This is his mug shot after a particularly long afternoon at the café. He's tired and a little achy. But he's still sporting his beret.

4) Josh Romney
Note from the apple artiste: To see the real one, click here.

5) Bea Leach
Note from the apple artiste: Extreme premature aging (from tanning with baby oil and tin foil back in the 70s) disintegrated Bea's head. Wear sunscreen, folks.

6) Maroushka 
Note from the apple artiste: She has something of the gypsy about her, so I think her name is appropriate.

7) Mr. Smith
Note from the apple artiste: In an attempt to speed up the drying process, I used my oven, on low heat. It seemed to be working until my betrothed turned on the oven to make chicken fingers and ended up baking my apple head.

The grand prize winner will receive the following books:

Marshmallow Madness

Tiny Food Party!

Real Snacks

Little Old Lady Recipes

    1. Jenny, I think you need to make your own apple head doll. Then you can say you've seen nine!
