Nordic Ware Celebrates their 65th Anniversary!

Nordic Ware is celebrating their 65th Anniversary and to celebrate they are hosting three fun contests!

Put your baking to the test and win some hot prizes with…
1. Nordic Ware's 2011 BUNDTS® ACROSS AMERICA Recipe Contest

To continue celebrating the popularity of the "Bundt" pan, Nordic Ware will hold the 4th national "Bundts Across America" contest to be held April 1, 2011 through September 30, 2011. Bakers across the United States will be asked to submit Bundt recipes that represents in their own special way Heritage and Traditions. Because Nordic Ware is celebrating the company's 65th anniversary, and the Bundt has been such a historical piece for Nordic Ware, bakers will be encouraged to make good use of the many specialty Bundt designs available from Nordic Ware.

Entries will be judged on originality, use of simple ingredients, taste, texture, visual appearance and essay. Since a Bundt cake requires no decorations, elaborate use of frostings and extensive cake decorating will not be considered in determining winners. Use of simple glazes, sugars, garnishes, fruits and flowers are recommended instead. Each month will have one finalist selected, resulting in 6 finalists. Of those six, one will be chosen a Grand Prize Winner.

Prizes
(1) National Winner
Two-night trip for two to New York City (airfare and hotel included).
Tickets to the Martha Stewart Show for a special celebration of the Bundt Pan the week of November 14, 2011.

3. Nordic Ware's 2011 "History Hunt" Contest
In honor of Nordic Ware's 65th Anniversary and to continue celebrating the popularity of the Bundt® Pan, Nordic Ware will hold its inaugural "History Hunt," intended to unearth some of the first Nordic Ware Bundt® Pans sold over 60 years ago.

Nordic Ware's Mission: To capture an early sand cast version of each Bundt pan listed below.
Original heavy cast aluminum 12 cup Bundt Pan
Original heavy cast aluminum 6 cup Bundt Pan
Original heavy cast aluminum 6 cavity Bundtlette Pan The sand cast versions of the 12 cup Bundt Pan were largely hand made in the 1950's or early 1960's and will most likely have a natural aluminum unfinished exterior and interior. The pan may have a pink or green Teflon® coated nonstick surface.

The 6 cup Bundt Pan and 6 cavity Bundtlette Pan were introduced in the late 1960's and early 1970's and could similarly be natural aluminum or possibly coated with nonstick interiors. Some of these pieces may have color enamel exteriors.

All of these pans were made of extra thick aluminum and the surfaces tend to have a grainy, slightly coarse texture.

Prizes:
(1) Winner will be chosen for each of the three Bundt Pans, for a total of (3) Winners.
Each of the (3) Winners will be awarded a $500.00 cash prize.
