In the contest that is cake vs. pie, my hands-down winner is . . . cheese. You may beg to differ. And if that’s so, and you’ve got the goods to prove it, there’s a local contest on the docket that has your name written all over it (in buttercream frosting, perhaps?). The contest is open to bakers (amateur or professional) and photographers (whose winning creations will get their food-porn moment online at co-sponsor, Edible Seattle).
Bakers must pre-register with an RSVP by August 2 (details here) and photographers may enter their artwork electronically (specifics on that here). A cake vs. pie taste-off is planned for Monday, August 9 at 7 p.m. at CakeSpy (415 E. Pine Street), Jessie Oleson’s new “spy” shop and gallery on Capitol Hill. Jessie, that cute-as-a-cupcake writer, illustrator and Head Spy, will be on hand to judge alongside other professional cake-and-pie-lovin’ Seattle sweeties.
