Year of the Rooster Design Contest Winners Announcement!

Hello Everyone!
This year had an overwhelming number of good designs.  In fact in my final pile of decisions I had 15 different designs by 13 different contestants.  Truly an amazing amount of talent contributed to this contest.  It’s with a heavy heart that I made the decisions, because I know some will be disappointed that they were not chosen.  But I can say with all honestly that not a single design we received was bad.
Many of the designs were equally as good as others but the decision to use some above others has alot to do with our plans for the year and balance of designs needed for ripe and raw cakes as well as the regions which we’ll be sourcing from.
Some designs that didn’t win I hope to gain your permission to utilize for some one off productions like our Impression cake or some ripe cakes.  Those chosen will also receive generous credit vouchers for use on Yunnan Sourcing.
The design contributions made by everyone are much appreciated and are a big component of Yunnan Sourcing’s look and feel through the years.  You are all Yunnan Sourcing!
With deep and humble gratitude,
Scott Wilson
