  • Stick Butter
  • Eggs
  • Sugar

  • Vegetable Oil
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Parchment paper
  • Cookie Sheets / “jelly roll pans” (low edge)
  • Vanilla


We have no 9×13 (which is very common for recipes) or round cake pans at the church, so you will need to bring your own if you need one or more of these.

  1. Your team will need to bring any other ingredients beyond the above list.
  2. Your team may begin the baking process as early as 6:00 pm
  3. If you do not have a pre-arranged team, we will create teams upon arrival.
  4. All equipment (mixers, bowls, stoves, ovens etc.) will be shared.
  5. All ovens will be set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Plan accordingly.
  6. Two conventional (like you have at home) and two convection ovens will be available.  Two coolers and two freezers will be available.
  7. Each team will make enough of their product, for small bites of it to be available to at least one member of each of the other teams.
  8. Arguments will be considered “poor form” and shall be dealt with accordingly.
  9. Judging of the products will be performed by all entrants and facilitators with fabulous[iii] prizes to these three categories:
  • Taste
  • Appearance
  • “Presentation” (Each team will need to be prepared to “present” their product in a three minute or less speech to the other participants.

(i.e. If your entry tastes and looks horrible, you still have a shot at winning in this category, but your presentation had better be great.)

[i] Or at least “kind of fun”.

[ii] Or “somewhat adequate”

[iii] Or “quite possibly lame”.
