4-H Baking at the Fair
On Tuesday, July 30, I judged the 4-H Baking at the Clark County Fair. Kids from 6 to 19 years old submitted their work for us to look at, smell and taste, pick apart and scrutinize, for (drum roll please) a chance at winning a rosette for Champion, Reserve Champion or Judge’s Choice. It was a long day, but a great day and there are some very talented young bakers out there!
I do not know the names of the kids that took the top ribbons, but some of the highlights were wafer cookies (overall champion for the day — congratulations!), a raspberry cream cheese cupcake, banana cream pie, key lime pie, lemon poppy seed cake, lemon bars and ginger snap cookies.
I strongly recommend swinging by the 4-H Baking display and requesting the recipes for these creations. They were fantastic! Way to go kids!
