All cakes are judged by looks. Therefore, you may use a cake foam if you choose.
DECORATED COOKIE CONTEST
This year's theme will be "Earth Day". Children should bring decorated cookie to exhibit hall between 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. on Saturday morning. Judging will take place at 10:30 Saturday morning. Please remove your cookie by 6 P.M. on Sunday. Age categories are 5 and under, 6-9 and 10-12. Prizes are $3, $2, and $1. Please specify age of child.
This year's pie will be "APPLE". Please submit ONE PIE ONLY for judging between 8:00 A.M. and 10:00 A.M. on Sunday. Judging will take place at 10:30 Sunday morning. I suggest baking the pie the day before judging as warm pies cannot be judged properly. Judges require that the recipe be included with the pie.
