The Midwife Center's ninth annual fundraiser party and cake contest
Let Them Eat Cake!
Saturday, April 5th, 2014 at the Pittsburgh Opera
Join The Midwife Center for our ninth annual fundraiser party and cake contest! The party will include refreshments, a silent auction, photo booth, live music from the Jazz Age, fun and of course - CAKE! The theme this year is Taking it to the Nines: A Roarin' Good Time in celebration of the ninth year of the event and the Roaring Twenties. 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. Check out photos from last year's Let Them Eat Cake!
