The winner, in case you are wondering, was Alison Summy, a third and fifth place winner in past contests. In the professional division, the blue ribbon went to Dinah Grossman from Cheap Tart Bakery. The four runner-ups were Adrienne Smith, Kathy Rice, Laura Kaminski and Joan Elias. Congratulations to all.
