Our Pumpkin Contest Winners!

We Have Chosen Our Winners


Our three winners who will enter the final round of judging have been chosen and alerted. We received dozens of recipes for everything from ice creams and soufflés, muffins, savory baked dishes, cookies, cheesecakes – even a baklava and a liqueur – all pumpkin of course! There were GF and paleo options, desserts for 2, baked appetizers…the creativity was astounding.

Thank you to all who entered. I have emailed each and every one of you but want to publicly thank you here. Our intent is for Bakepedia to be a leading resource for baking and desserts and we also want it to be lead and formed by YOU – our community members. Please continue to use the Add Your Recipe feature. When we aren’t running a contest, those recipes are put up live on the site rather quickly – and we cannot wait to see what you have for us. Here at Bakepedia your recipes are side by side with our Test Kitchen recipes as well as those of Rose Levy Beranbaum, Dorie Greenspan, David Lebovitz, Molly Katzen, Alice Medrich and so many others. We all share a joy of baking and want to create a deep and resourceful site for others.
