Cakes, pies and cookies, oh my! Girl scouts show off cooking skills at annual bake-off
Marlinton and Hillsboro Girl Scout troops gathered at the Marlinton Municipal Building Saturday for something sweet – a bake-off.
Girls entered cakes, cookies and pies, from classic chocolate cake and peanut butter cookies, to a unique hamburger shaped cake and Better Than Tom Selleck Cake.
After crafts and judging, the goodies were auctioned off as a fundraiser for the scout troops. The auction raised $1,440.
Best of Show – Madison Seal for her English Walnut Pie.
