Michigan’s Birthday Bake Off – Professional Division Winner

Wow. So many great Michigan desserts were presented in this competition, and YOU voted on your favorite. The race was SO CLOSE, and as a result, we will be offering up some consolation prizes.

But the announcement you’ve all been waiting for…first place goes to …

Second Floor Bakery!

Second Floor Bakery - Michigan Birthday Bake Off

We want to thank all the bakeries that participated – some many works of art were created to showcase your Michigan pride. The runners up in this competition were: Bella e Dolce, The Cupcake Tree Bake Shop, The Cupcake Zoo & Kathy of Potter’s. We’re happy to announce that over the next couple of months, we’ll be running features here on The Awesome Mitten on all of these bakeries, as we were thoroughly impressed by their sense of Michigan pride, and their decorating skills, and from your votes – you were too!

Thanks to all who participated in this year’s Michigan’s Birthday Bake-Off (Professional Division), and stayed tuned tomorrow to hear who won the amateur division!

Still trying to figure out how to celebrate Michigan’s 176th Birthday today?  Head to a Birthday Party nearest you!

The Awesome Mitten was born when I moved back to Michigan from Nashville, TN in September 2010. Almost immediately, I became frustrated. I couldn’t figure out why there weren’t more Michigan residents singing our states praises! I was so irritated, I wrote a Letter to the Editor. Three weeks later, I had started a Facebook page, a Twitter account, and a landing page for the website, determined to do something to make Michigan residents aware of all the cool things going on in their own state.
