The Roundup -

Enter Make It With Sugar Oct. 21 for a Chance to Win Great Prizes


Anne Babb won 1st place in the 2013 Make It With Sugar Contest with her recipe for chocolate cheesecake pie.

The Make It With Sugar contest is coming up, Friday, Oct. 21st, and Anne Babb is looking forward to another year of participation. This will be her fourth year taking part in the contest, previously having entered with delicious desserts and candy.

Babb won 1st place for her chocolate cheesecake pie, receiving a hand-made lazy-susan, and she's won People's Choice Award, winning a $100 Gift Certificate to Reese & ray's IGA.

"I've always enjoyed cooking and have done it for years," she said, adding that she's cooked for several local restaurants including the South 40, the Savage Senior Citizens Center, and former Lalonde Hotel and M&M Café. "I wasn't a baker, but my husband has a sweet tooth and that's why I started."

Babb, who is now retired, will still drop in to surprise former co-workers with home made treats.

"You know you never really retire," she laughed. "I first found out about the contest when I read about it in the paper and I enjoy it. I like trying different recipes."

Make It with Sugar was started about fifteen years ago by the Roundup as part of Sugar Days, now Harvest Festival, as a fun harvest event where community members can enter their best recipes for a chance to win.

Make It with Sugar will be held the morning of Friday, Oct. 21st at Reynolds Market. Entries will be accepted from 9:00am – 10:00am; categories are cakes, cookies, pies, candy, breads and rolls, and other. Hundreds of dollars in prizes will be awarded including a $100 People's Choice Award, and everyone who enters will receive a free bag of sugar per entry.
