Best Contest Ever : Bake a Cake for Dolly


I am going to get right to the point here. This contest, our #BakedForDolly contest, is quite simply the best contest. Ever. At least in our humble opinion. It is the ultimate combination of two of our favorite things: Cake and Dolly Parton. And all of you amazing bakers should enter, because there is a chance to win a free trip for two to Dollywood. OMG…DOLLYWOOD!

Here are the deets:

To enter, bake your version of the ultimate cake for Dolly Parton’s birthday. There are no parameters. Be as creative as you like. If I had to give you any guidelines (and there really aren’t any), I would say this : the cake should make you (and all of your friends) scream – “Wow, Dolly Parton will love this cake!”.

Once you have baked and iced your Dolly Parton Cake creation, photograph it and post it to social media with the hashtag #BakedforDolly, tagging both @brooklynbakerand @abramsbooks. Then formally submit your entry by filling out the form here. But hurry, you only have from October 1- October 31 to enter! We can’t wait to start sharing your creations on our social media channels: Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. That’s right we even have a Pinterest board devoted to Dolly’s cakes.

And, yes, we (Renato/myself) already made a version of the ultimate Dolly Birthday Cake to kick things off (don’t worry, we can’t win our own contest, but we are going to Dollywood anyway because…c’mon Dollywood)! This cake appears in our new cookbook, Baked Occasions, to celebrate the queen of country music.


So, to wrap up:

1. Bake some cakes for Dolly. Enter the contest. Tell your friends about it.

2. Pre-Order our cool new cookbook. We celebrate Dolly and Christmas and a lot of other cool holidays in between.
