The Second Annual Old-House Expo & Architectural Cake Contest will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 11 2013 in the atrium of Bloomington’s City Hall at 401 N. Morton St.
Entries are invited in two categories: Professional Baker and Non-Professional Baker. There is NO CHARGE to participate! For more information, see “rules.”
This year’s judges will be Gayle Cook, architectural historian, expert on domes, and one of Indiana’s most dedicated preservationists; Tommy Kleckner, Indiana Landmarks Western Regional Office Director; and the delightful Erica Sagon. You can read about Erica below.
Bakers, please deliver your cake to the atrium between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m. on May 11. The cakes will be displayed for public admiration, and judging will begin at 11 a.m. After the judges have chosen winners in the categories of Best Taste & Texture, Overall Appearance, and Faithfulness of Representation, the cakes will be cut, with cake for all to follow.
Entry forms must be received by noon on May 8.
The recipe that I get asked for the most, oddly, is my wedding cake. I am a freelance writer and editor, and the managing editor of Edible Indy, a quarterly food magazine. I also assist with baking and marketing at Piccoli Dolci, an Italian bakery that sells cookies and pastries at the Bloomington Community Farmers’ Market, Bloomingfoods, Goods for Cooks and Soma East.
