The Great App Bake Off is an iPhone App baking contest. It’s simple: pick an App, bake it, send us the pictures, win prizes.
You can enter the contest with any edible tribute to an App. It can be a cake, cookies, cupcakes, bento, as long as it relates to an iPhone App. All entries will get a page with an App Store link to the App, as well as being listed below.
Closing date for entries is 11th January 2010.
The contest is now closed, the finalists are all listed here.
App Cakes post edible iPhone Apps all year round. If you ever feel like doing something a little special for your latest app, or for an App you love, make sure you send us the pictures.
We’ll have cakes created by App developers alongside the main contest. These guys are just competing for bragging rights for the next year, but hopefully they’ll give you some ideas to get you started. Developers are also providing the prizes for the contest, you can support them buy downloading some of their Apps.
