The Midwife Center's ninth annual fundraiser party and cake contest
Saturday, April 5th, 2014
Join The Midwife Center for our ninth annual fundraiser party and cake contest including refreshments, a silent auction, photo booth, music, fun and of course - CAKE! The theme this year is Taking it to the Nines: A Roarin' Good Time. Amateur and professional bakers will compete in two different categories - tasting cakes and decorated cakes and you and our panel of judges will vote on cakes based on taste, decoration and use of the theme. More details, including information for bakers about the theme, will be announced as we get closer to the date.
