Jen Turpin, Eagle Crest’s parent-teacher organization president, coordinated the bakeoff to give children friendly competition outside of sports, she said.
She expected 30 entries and got 85.
“Parents liked it because their kids needed to use math, science and art. Kids liked it because they got to spend quality time in the kitchen with Mom or Dad,” Turpin said.
To round up judges, she called six local businesses. All of them — Inglorious Monk Bakery, Happy Cakes, Robin Chocolates, Great Harvest Bread Co., Romana Cake House and La Momo Maes Bakery — agreed to send a judge with prizes.
