Earlier this year, I featured a photo of a batch of cupcakes draped in Palestinian flags. It’s time we celebrate Palestine even more! I’ve decided to put together a small contest in which participants must bake, make, or create Palestine-themed sweets. The winner will receive a handcrafted Palestinian flag from the Gaza Strip. It’s a simple prize but because it was put together by the hands of people we admire for their fortitude and strength, the flag carries a great deal of significance.
The video below explains a bit further, but the rules are simple. Design a cupcake or cake, snap a photograph, and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline is December 15, 2011, and the winner will be announced the following day. Have fun and I can’t wait to see the final products!
A brief suggestion: I urge participants to send the actual cupcakes too, just in case.
Note: The contest is now closed. See the results here.
