We had a great turnout to the 2013 Cake Challenge.

The COOP was a great host and provided us an excellent service in hosting our Mental Health Week Challenge.

The community coverage from CJSB 104.5, Star & Times and Valley Biz were also excellent and I am sure went a LONG way in making our day a fantastic success!

We had 9 of our 10 cakes enter displayed. Many people came out to vote on their favourites.

The Winners of the Challenge were:

1. Event Cake Category: Barbara Lewis – Pigs in a mud hot tub.

2. Assortment Cake Category: Kenzie Laliberte – Under the Sea Cupcakes

3. Unique Shape Cake Category: Carla Lund (Your Bliss Cakes) – Maple Syrup over Waffles.

4. BEST OVERALL – Sponsored by COOP, CJSB 104.5 and Star & Times – Barbara Lewis Pigs in the Mud Hot Tub received the most votes overall

The cakes were all winners in the eyes of everyone who viewed them. So unique and colourful.
