Innovative icing and topping company Flavor Right has brought back its successful Icing Funds contest for another year, offering its largest grand prize ever.

Before 11:59:59 p.m. EST on Friday, August 17, entrants can complete a submission form on Flavor Right’s Facebook page sharing their independent retail bakery’s story, the challenges they face, and their plans for what they would do with the prize money if they won.

The grand prize winner will receive $10,000, and five second prize winners will each receive $2,000. In 2017, Easy Peasy Decadent Desserts in Greensboro, North Carolina and Sprinkleista Bakery in Schenectady, New York both won first place for their stories.

The Icing Funds contest celebrates the passion and entrepreneurial spirit that independent bakeries carry on every day. Past winners have used the prize money on significant improvements to their bakeries, such as new equipment.
