1. indicate your interest in baking a recipe by clicking the "i'm interested" button on the recipe page. by indicating your interest, all followers of the recipe will be automatically notified.
2. users who would like to see you bake the recipe can assign their open bounties to you
3. once you feel comfortable with the amount of bounties assigned to you, you can begin your bake by clicking the "start baking" button. any bounties assigned to you will be locked to prevent changes while you bake
(optionally, you can also decide to bake a recipe for free at anytime without any bounties)
4. after you begin baking, you'll have 4 days to submit your video. once submitted, heartpie moderators will perform a quick review to ensure it meets the baking guidelines, and release a short preview clip to users who have assigned their bounty to you
(if its a free bake, the preview step is skipped and your bake is complete!)
5. users have 3 days to finalize their bounty. bounties not finalized after 3 days will be automatically finalized
