Sweet potato pie contest at Mosaic Templars

Posted By on Mon, Nov 5, 2012 at 3:31 PM


The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center, the museum of black Arkansas entrepreneurship at 501 W. 9th St., is accepting entries for its first annual "Say it Ain't Say's" Sweet Potato Pie contest, open to both amateur and professional bakers. (The contest’s name refers to retired restaurateur Say McIntosh, famed for his sweet potato pies.)

Entries must be from scratch and not store-bought. Deadline to enter is Nov. 17; pies will be displayed and judged at the museum’s Holiday Open House 2-5 p.m. Dec. 2. The first eight amateur entries and first five professional entries will be accepted.

Prizes will be awarded for 1st and 2nd choice in each category and there will be a People’s Choice Award presented to the crowd favorite. Contest rules and entry forms can be picked up at Mosaic Templars Cultural Center or downloaded from the museum's website. Call 683-3593 for more information.
