Having a sweet tooth isn’t a weakness, it’s a gift! Chocolates, candies, cookies, cakes — you never tire of them, and we’d like to reward you for that. Enter your favorite dessert recipes in the Sweet Tooth contest for a chance to win a beautiful KitchenAid Chrome Artisan Stand Mixer, non stick baking mat, and more fabulous prizes. We also have a special judges' prize for the best cake design.

It’s the good work you do in the kitchen that reminds people to save a little room for sweets. Presentation is key to a great dessert and this contest is no exception. We want to see, step-by-step, how you turn your dessert into a work of art. Your pictures should be clear and bright, instructions thorough, and ideas original.

We're also pleased to announce a special guest judge for this contest, Maha Muhammad! Maha is the resident buttercream artist at Arty Cakes, where sugar and butter become art. She's completely self-taught and draws inspiration from nature and plants. Visit her Facebook page to be inspired and see pictures of her work!

Please be sure that your entry into the contest contains original photos and text. Entries without original photos and text will be denied.

The winner(s) will be solely responsible for complying with any and all applicable statutes, laws (including, without limitation, common law, if applicable), rules and regulations and for bearing any personal income tax, VAT, withholding taxes, customs duties, or other taxes, fees, insurance, surcharges or other costs relating to receiving, claiming or collecting any prize.
