Roll out the rolling pin, family recipe

Osseo Baking Contest set for Oct. 7

Bakers in Osseo, your skills are wanted.

The Osseo Lions Club is sponsoring the third annual Osseo Baking Contest Saturday, Oct. 7, at the Osseo Community Center, 415 Central Ave. The contest is for Osseo residents and Osseo Lions families only.

Beginning at 10 a.m. on Oct. 7, homemade baked goods will be accepted. There will be three categories for contestants to participate in. Those include: cakes/cupcakes, bars/brownies and pies.

Only one homemade item per household.

Judging will start at 11 a.m. Winners will be chosen once everything has been tasted. Three judges — Master baker Marjorie Johnson, TV celebrity Bobbie Jensen and Mayor Duane Poppe — will determine first place winners in each of the three categories.

Winners will receive a cash prize. Participants must be present to win.

Every contestant must complete a registration form. Those forms are available at the city’s website at after Sept. 15. Filled out forms must then be returned to the main lobby at Osseo City Hall between Sept. 15 and 29. There will be a registration box there.

This event is free. People not participating in the contest are welcome to come and watch.
