This should probably be down in the "events" section but seeing that there has been no activity there I was hoping this would stay here. I wanted to get the word out on many different social media sites not just facebook, that the Pastry Shoppe is hosting Sault Ste Marie's first baking competition. I realize not many youth may use this site but perhaps their parents do. Please ask your children if this is something they would like to participate in. I have been attending schools and talking to students about this event This event is geared towards our youth of Sault Ste. Marie to help drive their passion for the Culinary Arts and Hospitality.
We are hosting "open " video applications where they must show us why they should be a competitor. Then on April 15th, 2017 the judging panel will choose nine competitors in both the youth (7-12) and teen (13-18) division.
