“The Pontotoc Food Fight is an annual event that celebrates bakers from all backgrounds and skill levels,”  said B.O.N.D.

Bakers have the chance to win in three categories: Fan Favorite, Best Dressed Cake, and 1st Place Overall. However, Jessica mentioned that this year a new award will be introduced at the event. Attendees will choose the winners of the Fan Favorite awards; however, Best Dressed Cake and 1st Place Overall will be selected by three judges – local food blogger Jeff Jones of “Eating Out with Jeff Jones” and food critic duo Tae Buchanan and Jerwarski Marshall, better known as ItsJawz&Tae.
