We're Hiring! Are you our new Let Her Eat Cake columnist?

After wowing everyone with her Lazy Slut's Chocolate Cake, impressing us with Bramble and Lemon Loaf and frankly making us collectively swoon with her Luscious Lavender Cake, Alex English is hanging up her Domestic Sluttery hat to concentrate on her fiction writing. This means that our popular cake column Let Her Eat Cake is without a cake maker and we're looking for someone new to join the team in January 2013!

Let Her Eat Cake is one of the few columns we run on the site - it's not a general food writing role. We need cakes and only cakes. You'll initially be writing cake column each fortnight, but sometimes that will increase at busy times or for specific projects.

So what do you get for joining Team Sluttery? Well you get paid per post (don't get your hopes too high - it's not a lot) and you'll get to work on some very cool projects (you all saw the Domestic Sluttery book, right?) Goodies in the post and press trips across the UK and Europe are also perks that are shared amongst the team.

What do we need from you? You must have food writing and blogging experience. We don't care if it's on your own blog, or professional writing experience - just something that shows you can write an original recipe as well as understand the back end of a CMS. It's not enough to be able to knock up a decent Victoria sponge. You'll also need to be UK-based, like all of our writers. And you'll also take a decent photo - have you seen Nick and Hazel's photography?! You don't need a photography studio in your back garden, but we do need something better than you snapping away on your iPhone. A love of karaoke isn't essential, but it certainly helps.

Got all that? Then send us three ideas for the cake column (take a look at Let Her Eat Cake for more of an idea of what we're looking for - we've got gluten free recipes sorted). We only need the ideas, don't write the entire posts. Email your ideas to prettygirls@domesticsluttery.com  and tell us a little bit about yourself. Don't try and wow us with stuff we've written about already - we'll almost certainly delete your application if you send us three ideas we've done.

If you've applied before you can apply again (feel free to amend your old application and tell us you've been in touch previously, we don't want to take up hours of your time). You've got until noon on December 7th to get in touch (nope, no late applications allowed). We get hundreds of applications but we'll get in touch soon after that if you're shortlisted. It's a team decision and our busiest time of year so do be patient while we read the applications.

Good luck everyone! We can't wait to read your cake ideas.
