I just won a baking contest!!!

Hey all you guys!!!

I just won my first baking contest! (It wasn't bread, though.) I made key lime pies and won all three categories (Taste, Presentation, and Creativity) in my little local bake off!! And I got a $50 gift card for each category, for a total of $150 in prize money!


I just wanted to share that with all you bakers out there!

Congratulations!  What a thrill that must have been.  What are key lime pies and do you have any pics? :)

All the best,

Key Limes are also known as "Mexican Limes" are more acidic than persian limes. They are also smaller.

Good going and congratulations!

We have our local summer fair competition coming up soon and I know what a kick it is to enter, let alone to make it into the finals. I wish I'd been a judge for your Key lime pie, one of my all-time favourites.

The thrill of victory overwhelms the agony of the feet after standing at the bench for so long.

Congratulations, I know how that feels. I plan on going back to enter the Leavenworth County Fair in less than two weeks to see if I can repeat.
