This Valentine’s Day, WRECO staff celebrated by bringing their best baked goods to WRECO’s Annual Valentine’s Day Bake-off.  We had five employees enter the competition, and everyone loved being able to take a break in the afternoon to eat and judge sweets.

Our entries included Mochi with Tropical Fruit, Spice Cake, Indian Sweets, Twix Cupcakes, and Mini Cheesecakes with Cherries.

WRECO staff were very intent on trying all of the creations, for judging purposes only, of course!  The winner of the contest was the Chocolate with Caramel Frosting Twix Cupcakes, and the Mini Cheesecakes with Cherries were a close second.

Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn and cauldron bubble…
By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes.
Open, locks,
Whoever knocks.
~ Macbeth, Act 4, Scene 1
