The Great Frederick Fair’s bakery auction rolled out some delicious treats and made some solid money for the 4-H Club Sunday night.
The prize of the show was cake number 55. It was, yum, a golden cake with lemon filling baked by Aislinn Latham, a very talented Catoctin High School freshman baker.
With 224 cakes, pies and other baked goods up for auction, the bidding was lively. The 4-H king, queen and princesses cheered on the crowd as the prices climbed to $200, $300 and finally, to take the cake, $3,500.
Betsy Mullineaux and Barry Feaga, who worked together on the event, told the News Post the Great Frederick Fair is the 4-H’s largest fundraiser of the year. As the tally is counted for this year's auctions, there are fond memories of the more than $25,000 raised at last year’s event.
We'll take a piece of Aislinn's masterpiece -- if it’s not all gone by now.
