PEC employees and their families gathered at the cooperative’s Canyon Lake office September 14, to put their best baked goods forward in celebration of the co-op’s 85th anniversary.
Entries ranged from cakes and cookies to pies and a variety of delicious confections. Rebecca Hernandez Sanders of Wildflour Artisan Bakery and Grill served as the competition’s grand prize judge with her team, Jayden Longoria and Evelyn Kennedy. Employees who didn’t compete still had a chance to participate by taste testing entries with a $5 donation to benefit PEC’s Power of Change Program.
The following employees and their entries were named winners in their respective categories:
Grand Prize: Selected by Rebecca Hernandez Sanders and her team based on appearance, taste, and texture.
Heather Miller, PEC administrative assistant — Almond Amaretto Pound Cake
People’s Choice: Selected by employees.
Emily Bergeron, PEC distribution planner — Peachy Keen Cobbler
Lucky Draw: Selected by a random draw of entries, except those selected as the Grand Prize and People’s Choice award winners.
Carrie Garrett, PEC distribution planner — Mexican Chocolate Cake
