Pound Cake Contest
Search for those pound cake recipes you’ve held on to for years or recall how your mom or grandmother made their pound cakes. It’s Pound Cake Contest Time and the mixing, beating and baking can bring special honors.
For the third year in a row, the Mathews May Faire celebration is sponsoring a pound cake contest. The event will be held on Saturday, May 4, in the main county office building at the court green entrance. Bakers should bring their cakes to the building by 9:30 a.m. Judging will begin at 10 o’clock.
Awards will be made for first, second and third places with a special award for best presentation. Entry forms will be available on site but can be picked up at the Mathews office of the Gazette-Journal office two weeks before the contest.
Following the judging, with permission from a contestant, his or her cake will be sold to benefit the Mathews Historical Museum which sponsors May Faire; however, donating the cake is not a requirement for entering the contest.
For more information and to pick up an entry form, call Betty Wrenn Day, 804-725-2191.
