Hi, TFLers!

I came across this announcement on the KAF site, was immediately intrigued by the idea and then wondered if any TFL-ers were going to enter? 

(From looking at the past entries it seems like the folks on this board might have a competitive advantage.)

I thought it might be fun to try it, but I don't know a thing about baking contests, what might be a winning recipe to enter, or how competitve these contests are.

Does anyone on TFL have experience with bake-offs?  And if so, any tips or suggestions for those among us who are inexperienced and/or timid??!

Please tell us.

Thanks so much.  J.
