Casa Pan Dulce wins Saga’s Dessert-themed Cook-off

Friday, March 1st, 2013

The Saga Humane Society monthly cook-off was a treat for the sweet tooth this month. The decadent Desserts Cook-Off was held at Average Joe’s, with all donations going towards the SNIP program. Along with the tasty desserts from the extraordinary cooks of Ambergris Caye, guests also got to enjoy Average Joe’s delicious $1 wings while the Small World Band played the night away.

On Wednesday February 27th, contestants displayed their delicious desserts to tempt the sweet loving patrons. There was everything from cakes to pies, and those that made it in time were lucky indeed. For the minimal contribution of $10, lucky attendees got to sample all the treats and cast a vote for their favorite entry. After tasting and voting the votes were tallied and winners were chosen. With a scrumptious apple pies and vanilla ice cream, Casa Pan Dulce managed to edge out the competition and take first place, Elizabeth Burkey’s pineapple upside down rum cake with a twist, took second place. Black Orchid Restaurant’s deliciously gooey Baklava took third place.

Every dollar made that night was doubled thanks to generous donors. According to Saga the funds raised will help them meet their goal to spay/neuter (SNIP) 40 animals totally free of charge. The Saga Humane Society takes the opportunity to thank all those who contributed to the event; in particular, they thank Average Joe’s Bar for hosting the event. Any person interested in making a kind donation to SAGA Humane Society or in participating in the next cook off can contact 226-3266 or email [email protected].

To all pet owners remember “It’s HIP to SNIP”.
