Update! My "Poor Man's Toffee Bars" won the Cookie Category in the first annual IM (Inventory Management) Bake Off.
Judged on taste, presentation, and creativity by members of the leadership team; I received 18 out of a possible 20 points! I was given extra credit for my naming convention that was "Recessionary" minded.
Next up was the cake category and my managers "Cheese Cake Bites" won!
Team Accessories was on a roll!
Then in the pie category our Pecan Pie lost to the Womens Team's Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. (It was good!)
Finally it came down to the wild card category and our Hazelnut Cinnamon Rolls were beat out by the Womens Team's Peanut Butter Cups. I think the Peanut Butter Cups got extra credit for the "Dear Santa" letter that was attached.
So in the end Team Accessories lost to the Women's Team in total points but we were all winners in having a good time.
The poor Men's Team did not win any categories but did get extra points for presentation. They had professional looking signs to describe their entries.
Special thanks to my Aunt Barbara who first introduced me to the cookies that I entered into the contest.
