  • There will not be cooking facilities available at the event, so please bring a serving utensil if needed. We will have paper plates for people to serve themselves.
  • Have a name for your entry--we will give you a card on which to write your name and the title of the dessert to help voters identify it.
  • You do not need to notify us of your entry ahead of time, just bring it with you. CONTEST BEGINS at 2 P.M. Please plan to arrive by 2 with your entry.
  • All event attendees will be able to vote for their favorites. Attendees will be able to vote for their favorites.
  • VOTING takes place between 2 and 3 p.m.. Winners (top three items) will be announced during the presentation after 3 p.m.
