Ladies & gentlemen – Start your ovens! It’s time to enter the Two Chicks from the Sticks baking contest!!! We have three, yes three, contests at this year’s Iowa State Fair. The top three entries in each category will win some really cool prizes and I’m not talking about one of those flimsy blue ribbons either.
1st Place - $100 + Living the Country Life Book Library + an autographed copy of our book: Two Chicks from the Sticks – Back Home Baking
2nd Place - $75 + our book (and yes we’ll autograph it)
3rd Place - $50 + our book (maybe we’ll autograph, you may have to say “Please!”)
Everyone who enters receives a signed copy of our new book: Two Chicks from the Sticks – Back Home Baking
Now that you know what you can win, I bet you would like to know what you have to bake. Our first competition is something different for the fair – Scones with a Twist (class 21A) Monday, Aug 15 @ 2PM. Develop your own recipe, take your mother’s or borrow a friend’s, we don’t care. Just take it and twist it!
The second contest is one that is near and dear to the Two Chicks’ hearts -Favorite Frosted Sugar Cookies (class 64A) Tuesday, Aug 16 @ Noon. We love a good frosted sugar cookie and we can’t wait to taste your favorite recipe. Let yourself go on this one – maybe it’s an unusual cut out or a different flavor of icing. Just make it your own.
The final contest is real winner and sure to draw a few laughs – Dessert on a Stick (class 89A) Wednesday, Aug 17 @ 2PM. Hey, it is the Iowa State Fair and what says fair time like food on a stick. There are no limits to what you can do with this one.
Entries are due by July 1st and you must be a resident of the state of Iowa. You can access entry forms at your county extension office or at the Iowa State Fair web site. http://www.iowastatefair.org/competition/categories/
Don’t wait to enter, time is a ticking!
