Local Bakers Create Comic-Book Themed Cakes At Pontotoc Baking Competition

B.O.N.D. Small Business Group hosted its fourth annual Pontotoc Food Fight on Saturday, October 22nd, at Melvin’s Grill in Pontotoc, MS. This year’s theme was “Comic Book Cakes.” The Pontotoc Food Fight consisted of seven bakers going head-to-head to see which baker could create the best comic-themed cake.

Bakers had the chance to win in three categories: Fan Favorite, Best Dressed Cake, and 1st Place Overall. Attendees chose the winners of the Fan Favorite awards; however, Best Dressed Cake and 1st Place Overall were selected by three judges – local food blogger Jeff Jones of “Eating Out with Jeff Jones” CEO of Second Sight Publishing Bradley Golden, and artist, YouTuber, and marketing professional Reggie McKinney.

The MC for the event was Stephanie Moneek, host of The Uneekly Living Radio Show in Tupelo, MS. Music was provided by DJ Marcus Rucker of Pontotoc, MS. The photographer for the event was Larissa Starks, owner of Photography by Larissa. Awards were designed and created by Ashley Hutcheson, owner of AHE Kreations. Programs for the event were also printed by Valerie Adkinson, owner of Pamphlets by Val.

The bakers were not the only winners. Attendees also had the chance to take home one of the competing cakes by participating in a cakewalk.
