Bakers: Start your ovens!

In addition to live music, a cooking demonstration, a strawberry eating contest and more than a few strawberries for consumption, Saturday’s Strawberry Jubilee will feature a cake-baking contest.

Spread the word to your mother, Aunt Edna, Uncle Barry and that quiet neighbor — in short, everyone whom you’ve ever told, “Your strawberry cake is the BEST!”

To enter, bring your freshly baked rockin’ strawberry cake to the Jubilee for sampling by a panel of judges. Drop off your entries at noon on Saturday in the Farm Shed area; judging will commence at 1 p.m. and awards will be presented an hour later.

Points will be awarded based on taste, appearance and how well strawberries are integrated into the recipe. Our winner will walk away with a $100 cash prize, a blue ribbon and a basket of local strawberries to enjoy at home (for more baking?).
