ActivateUTS Bake Off

The Great UTS Bake Off

It’s time to turn loose in the kitchen with The Great UTS Bake Off.

We challenge you to bake, create and decorate your favourite dessert. Your dessert can be anything – from cakes to doughnuts to cookies and pastries. All we ask is that you make the dessert from scratch and dress it with your best decorations.

Make your decorations as basic or fancy as you’d like. Think candy, fruit, buttercream, fondant and frosting.

The best part? The first 15 eligible submissions will win a cake (valued up to $54) from Cake Mail, sent directly to their home.

Submit your entry via our Google Form

Submissions close 11.59pm, Sunday 19 September.

All submissions will be shared on the ActivateUTS Facebook page from Monday 20 September for their chance to win the Fan Favourite award. The submission with the most ‘likes’ will win a $100 Coles voucher.

Please read the T&Cs below for your best chance of winning the Cake Mail.
