Treat Petite – a new baking, blogging challenge!

Welcome and a big thank you for stopping by to check out ‘Treat Petite’. It’s a new baking, blogging challenge hosted on alternate months by myself - Stuart from Cakeyboi and Kat over at The Baking Explorer.

The idea behind Treat Petite is quite simple – it’s any sweet treat you can think of that’s not a big cake! From cookies to macarons, krispie treats to truffles; we want to see any delicious concoction you conjure up in the kitchen that is individually portioned!! And don’t worry; cupcakes are permitted.

Each month will have a theme for you, to get those ideas flowing.

Each challenge will begin on the 1st of every month and will close on 25th. We aim to have a round up online at the end of the month.

Here are those all important rules;

  1. Email that month's host by the 25th of the month, midnight at the latest – include in the e-mail your name, if you have a blog the URL of your post and name of your blog, recipe and a photo (640x480pixels max) of your bake.

  1. If applicable post your bake onto your blog and link back to Cakeyboi and The Baking Explorer, stating who is hosting that particular month.

  1. Follow Cakeyboi and The Baking Explorer blogs via the Google Join this Site button, if you haven’t already.

  1. If you tweet use  #treatpetite and mention @MrCakeyboi and @BakingExplorer – we will retweet

  2. Add the challenge logo to the post and ‘Treat Petite’ as a label to the post

  3. Use any recipe as long as the source is noted

  1. Add your photo to the ‘Treat Petite’ Pinterest board (request access from me – Cakeyboi)

  1. Feel free to enter old posts as long as you update the post and meet all the requirements above!

And the theme for Treat Petite No.1 is ‘No Theme’. That’s right – to get us all into the swing of things, anything goes! Kat is hosting and she would love to see your petite makes, no matter what they are….

If you have any questions at all, please email Cakeyboi or The Baking Explorer.

Ready, steady bake!

  5. I keep coming back to this page because the challenge sounds so interesting. I've been wondering though, are traybakes allowed? They end up individually portioned but start off as a big cake so I wasn't sure! I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with =)

    1. Hi Laura, I'm really glad you want to take part - and YES - traybakes are most definitely allowed! Kat and I can't wait to see what you come up with :)

    2. Yes!! I can't wait to bake for this now. Hopefully it will work so I can take part =)

  6. Sounds like a GREAT challenge and I will join in too! Karen
