A bakers’ dozen of champions (13 winners) will each receive a blue ribbon, bragging rights, and a $20 bill for their favorite charities, schools or places of worship. There is no limit to entries from a baker, and entrants can win more than one recipe. Entry is free. Presented by Justin Rudd! and his nonprofit Community Action Team (CAT). MAP
