Calling all artists (cupcake artists that is!)

 Cakes for Cause is holding a postcard design contest this summer. If you've been to the Farmer's Market, you may have picked up one of our marketing postcards. This is the first in a series of original "cupcake art" and we're inviting you to submit a design for our next postcard run in the early fall. The criteria for submissions is as follows:
  • Submit original artwork (click here for the submission form) on 8.5 x 11 inch paper
  • You must include the phrase "Cakes for Cause" and "Stirring the Spirit of Community" in your design
  • Submissions due by Friday August 22nd by mail or by email
Our panel of 3-5 judges will review all the pieces and make a final decision on a winner by September 10th. Our designers will contact you to prepare your art for printing and we will run 500 postcards with your design on it to hand out to the public. You will receive 25 postcards to distribute as you wish and we will acknowledge the winning artist by name on the back of all the postcards and on our website. This contest is appropriate for all ages and the submission form includes an age range. Get your crayons out and start drawing!

At the Farmer's Market for the remainder of the season, by popular request, we will have two constant scone flavors: Cheddar Chive and Lemon Ginger along with a rotating scone flavor each week. Thanks for liking them so much. Several people have taken our suggestion of wrapping and freezing our scones each week and then refreshing them in a 350 oven for 10 minutes so they taste freshly baked. You can do the same with croissants. Many people came last week and purchased scones to take to their beach vacation with them. If you'd like to guarantee that you'll have them in time for your vacation, you can pre-order our breakfast pastries in any quantity. We also take pre-orders for any of our breads or other items...they're perfect for meetings, picnics, and parties. Email for a menu and pricing.
