Ready, set, BAKE! Two weeks remain for bakers to pre-heat the oven, bring out your favorite Bundt® pan submit their favorite recipe for the 2008 Bundts Across America Recipe Contest. Nordic Ware – maker of the iconic pan – is hosting its third-annual national recipe contest inviting bakers to submit their most creative, best-tasting Bundt creations.
This year, Nordic Ware is continuing the popular holiday theme calling for recipes that celebrate ten popular American holidays. Each recipe entered into the contest 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.
Because there is a Bundt pan for every season, bakers will be encouraged to make good use of one of the many seasonal Bundt designs from Nordic Ware. Bakers will be required to capture the essence of the Bundt cake, meaning no elaborate use of frostings.
Entrants have just two more weeks to meet the contest’s registration deadline which is August 1, 2008.
The 10 finalists will be invited to participate in the national baking competition to be held in San Francisco in October where another team of culinary experts and representatives from Nordic Ware will judge the final cakes and one grand prize-winner will be selected from those 10 finalists. The grand prize winner will be announced on or around November 15, National Bundt Day!
The ten finalists will be treated to a fun-filled expense paid weekend in San Francisco, which will include participating for the Grand Prize at the baking competition being held at the famous San Francisco Baking Institute. The 10 finalists will also receive a $500 Nordic Ware gift certificate and the grand prize winner of the 2007 Bundts Across America will receive $10,000 in cash!
The contest is sponsored by Nordic Ware where you can find contest rules and an entry form.
Let the baking begin!
