We love celebrating Darwin Day here on Skepchick. Last year, we asked our favorite artists to draw us something appropriate. In 2009, you made us Darwinian playlists, and in 2008 you made us Darwinian Valentine’s Day cards. 2007, of course, was the infamous Darwinian Pick-up Line contest.
This year, our contest is inspired by my Icelandic friend Hjalti, who challenged me to a Darwin Day Bake-off. “Why not include the entire Internet,” I thought to myself. So, I am!
Bake up something delicious â€“Â a cake, a pie, cookies, cupcakes, whatever, so long as it’s related to Charles Darwin, either in decoration or recipe. Submit a photo and description (bonus points for a clever name) by including links here in this comment thread or by using the contact form. (You can use a service like imgur to get a link for your pics.)
Submit your entryÂ by Wednesday, February 9th. That’s just one week!
Win some awesome Darwin-themed prizes courtesy ofÂ Surlyramics! The Skepchicks will choose a few finalists, and the good readers will then vote on those to determine the winner. The top three will win a Tree of Life Surlyramics necklace, and the winner will also receive a print of the Rebecca Watson & Darwin’s Beard artwork Surly Amy made for last year’s Darwin Day.
So get baking!
