Three judges. Over 100 entries. More than 30 amazing prizes. This is SugarSlam 2011. From Kamala brownies to Kendo Nagasaki cake pops to “The Perfect Dozen: 13 cupcakes reflecting the life of one of the greatest wrestlers of all time, ‘Mr. Perfect’ Curt Hennig” this year was bigger, badder and better than ever!
Beth Phoenix, Mike Edison and Ben Roche had their work cut out for them, and with several of my close friends entering up to 8 different sweets and treats each I was glad to be off the hook this year! Indeed there was one winner – one baked good tough enough to take home the title. But all three judges agreed that there were just too many amazing submissions to let some of these go by without some kind of prize. So check out the video to see if you won (sorry if we’re quiet – we were filming in a big house in a noisy part of the city)
and don’t sweat it if you didn’t because you have until 9pm CST July 22 to round up everyone you know to vote for you as the People’s Choice Award winner. (Make sure they know that random voters will also be selected to receive prizes!)
Once again, thank you to our judges, our sponsors and to everyone who entered and voted!
Now go choose a People’s Choice winner!
Update: Meet Your champion!
I wanted to give our newly-crowned champ the chance to hear her name being announced by The Gamazon. Now that she knows she won, I’d like you all to meet your champion, Melissa!
As you can see, Melissa was already winning at life before she won the 2011 SugarSlam title. Truth be told, I’ve known Melissa a long time and I’m really excited she won. She’s a true blue wrestling fan and a bit of a Renaissance woman to boot. Check out some of the crazy awesome stuff she’s created:
You can buy her art and other weirdness in Melissa’s Etsy shop. You probably admired some of her other SugarSlam entries including Grab Them Cakes and Supe
Congrats to Melissa, thanks to the sponsors and
don’t forget to vote for People’s Choice!
Another update! Meet your People’s Choice Award winner!
I’m really excited to announce that my friend Jessy won the People’s Choice Award with her amazing Rey Mysterio cake! I love, love, love that she used candy and all kinds of other nummy things to make all the fancy decorations because fondant tastes like butt. Jessy also entered the King Kong Bundty and the Antonio Inoki’s Guava Pound Your Face Cake Dessert Sushi – so she was not joking around when she entered!
Once again, thanks to everyone who entered and everyone who voted. I’ll be in touch with the random voting winners and a few other contestants whom the judges decided deserved a prize over this week end! <3 to you all!
