Decorate your yards to win Halloween cake

It’s almost Halloween time to get out in your yards and decorate for a chance to win The Great Pumpkin Cake.

Halloween is my favorite time of the year to bake. I let my inner 11-year-old loose in the kitchen with an array of sugary decorations with cookies, cauldrons, hats and cake to decorate. With Halloween the motto is, “What mistake? I planned it that way.”

Living in CY makes the fun all the more special because I have the great honor and pleasure of providing the prizes for the best decorated yards.

The grand prize is a pumpkin cake tray with a pumpkin spice cake (think carrot cake) with cream cheese icing; it serves about 16. The tray also includes an edible cookie cauldron filled with candy, an edible witch’s hat and a few other delightful surprises.

Second place wins a cauldron and two witches’ hats and third place will win four witches’ hats.

To enter your yard in the contest please contact the CYCA office by the afternoon of Oct 22. Please also indicate if you’d like your cake for the weekend or on Halloween. The judges will be out and about on the 23rd or 24th and you’ll be notified by the 25th.

Happy decorating and Happy Halloween!
