Holiday Bake-Off: Sign up now!

Some people are all about the baking, some people are all about the tasting — and Staff Assembly needs both for its second annual Holiday Bake-Off. But you’ve got to sign up! The deadline is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7.

This year’s bake-off is the Bars Edition, for bars you will make at home, then bring to the bake-off. Staff Assembly has room for 48 bakers. Bakers register here.

Tasters are an integral part of this competition — sign up here! — because the judging will start with them. The tasters will pick the top five bars for presentation to a separate panel of three judges who will choose the winners.

The tasting and judging will be in the multipurpose room at the Student Community Center, on Monday, Dec. 12. Bakers are asked to check in at 10:30 a.m. with two dozen bars for the people’s tasting (cut these bars into bite-size pieces, approximately 96 of them) and three complete bars for the judges. The people’s tasting will start at 11:15 and the winners will be announced at 12:45 p.m.
