I'm please to announce that our cheesecake one in two categories. The best presentation (ours had a small mountain of meringue covered in melted white chocolate on top) and best overall. Apparently a small trophy is on the way. The highlight for me, of course, is skipping supper and going right to cheesecake. I managed to sample 9 of the 11 entries (not that 5 had to cancel out due to the blizzard on Friday). Sadly, that quantity did not qualify me to win the CPC award. The presentation of the awards is a fine event with Prof. Bobo looking impeccably attired in his tie-die shirt and pilgrim hat. He then hands out the prizes purchased from Princess Auto. We got a small set of stainless steel cups, a whisk for sweeping car mats and a pair of welding gloves.
This post obviously has nothing to do with writing (as you may have noticed) and I commend you if you have made it this far. I would post the cheesecake recipe here, but since this is not a cooking/baking blog I won't subject you to that. I have my limits. However, the winning cheesecake was of the baked variety and contained chocolate, sour cream, cream cheese and had amaretto in both the filling and the glaze. For anyone wanting the recipe, you can email me and I'd be happy to send it to you. I forgot to take our camera to the event, so the cake shown is a generic chocolate cheesecake I pilfered from the web.
I now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
