Month 1: September – South African cuisine theme. Recreate a South African dish or baked product (from scratch) and include a secret family ingredient that has been passed down for generations. 10 submissions will then be shortlisted and baked/cooked as per recipe and 2 finalists/winners will be chosen.

Month 2: October – Dessert theme. Create an out-of-this-world dessert inspired by ‘shape’ (from scratch). 10 submissions will be shortlisted and baked/cooked as per the recipe, and 2 finalists/winners will be chosen.

Month 3: November – GRAND FINALE: Christmas Cake theme. Create a unique Christmas cake recipe (from scratch). The 4 finalists (2 winners from the previous two themes) will compete for the prizes up for grabs with the runner up receiving a whopping R10 000 cash prize, while the winner takes home the prestigious golden Snowflake trophy and the title of Snowflake’s Ultimate Creations winner for 2021!
