Patty Cake, Patty Cake,…. Baker’s Man,……
Hey guys,….. Yes, guys as in men. Do you like to bake and decorate cakes? I have always compared cake batter, corn bread batter to the same consistency as mortar. And spreading icing is akin to spreading joint compound or as some know it, sheetrock mud. Anyway,….. there is an upcoming event at Regency Square Mall where you can show off your talents, not as in finishing sheetrock but as a baker, of cakes. I was asked by Melanie Orseske, Marketing Director, Regency Square Mall to help spread the word about the Patty Cake, Patty Cake Baker’s Man contest on Tuesday, February the 12th at 6pm. I'm honored to be asked and happy to do it. What do the winners get? A romantic night at the award-winning Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa with dinner for 2 at the 360 Grille, flowers from Lola's Gifts & Flowers, or a gift basket of Avon products for the woman in your life! And it is for a very important cause, the Colbert-Lauderdale Attention Homes.

Enter the Valentine's Day Contest at Regency Square Mall and you could win a romantic night at the award-winning Marriott Shoals Hotel & Spa with dinner for 2 at the 360 Grille, flowers from Lola's Gifts & Flowers, or a gift basket of Avon products for the woman in your life! We're looking for non-professional bakers to participate in Patty Cake, Patty Cake - our cake-baking and decorating contest to be held on Tuesday, February 12th at 6pm in Center Court, Regency Square Mall. All proceeds from this event benefit the Colbert-Lauderdale Attention Homes.
There is no fee to register, but you have to pre-register to be entered into the contest! All male amateur bakers over the age of 18 must bring a cake they've baked and everything they need to decorate and assemble it on the Mall premises. (No baking can be done in the Mall.) You must also have the same cake in a sheet cake to be cut up into small samples for the public to taste and judge. Each contestant may have one male helper over the age of 10. The cake and decoration must represent Valentine's Day or the "Valentine" in your life, and will be judged in two categories and awarded prizes accordingly; 1) Best Overall Design & Taste, and 2) People's Choice Award.
The cost to the public is $5 and you can sample all the baked goodies!! Tickets will be available at HoneyBaked Ham Cafe in Regency Square Mall and Lola's Gifts and Flowers located at 214 N.
