Mn,. KATHERINE PUETTE, with her first prize layer cake.
Miss Pennybacker'a wholly unexpected
triumph the congregation of tho
church will Install a big gas range in
their new edifice In Sixteenth street.
Said Miss Pennybacker after the con
test: "Why, the Idea of my winning in
u cake competition! It Is astonishing. I
never dreamed of It. I simply uttended
several of Prof. Snyder's lectures, heard
hlin talk on cuke baking and went home
and followed his Instruction. I had no
Idea my cake would win. for I have
seldom or never hud any success In
cake bnklng.
"I prize the gas range most hlghb.
asid for the sentiment I think I Khali
kpep It In my kltrhen as a reminder
of the biggest surprise of my life. I
have a much bigger new gUH range in
my kitchen anil one euMer to operuto
than the one I received In the contest.
I think I fihall give the church my
big, new slmpU range so that nnvono

Awarded Vacuum Cleaner.
Mrs. Katherlne Puette, who was
awarded the vacuum cleaner for the best
layer cake, was enthusiastic over her
victory, but not nearly so much as Miss
Pennybacker, for winning oake prizes
is no new sensation for Mrs. PUette.
She has won u number of them p)th
for layer and loaf cakes. In fact, she
relied more heavily upon her sexeial
loaf cake entri-s to win a reward than
upon her layer cake.
Mrs. Charles "Whltobread, who led "the
entire field In the bread buklng division,
uIho took her victory calmly, for she,

about their big task, of selecting tho
The points considered in Judging the
cakes were appearance, tuste, grain,
texture, molstuie, tenderness, spiinui
ness, and velvttnoss. In tho bread di
vision appearance, grain, texture ."liv
ing of tho ingredients, ki.eudlnt and
baking wero considered.
Each housewlve who entered .1 cake,
was given a coupon with a number on
It. A number corresponding to this wi
placed on ths cake. In a closed Ittr 1
were placed duplicate numbered coi1
poiiH containing the nsmes and ad-1
dresses of the entries. The jar was not I
opened until artcr the calces had hern
Judged. Then Prof. Pnyder and Mrs.
Knvder ascertained the names of the
holders of the coupons.
From among the forty-six loRf
cakes, Prof. Snyder selected sixteen
of the best, after poking holes in the
slices cut off, testing the springiness
and moisture and sizing up thn gen
eral appearance. Then, as if ap
pealing to the supreme court, he call
ed In Mrs. Snyder, who went over
all the entries, but failed to add any
to the sixteen selects. Tho two then
stood by the table on which the six
teen cakes rested and viewed the
cakes with most critical eyes.
How They Judged.
They massaged, squeezed, and poked
the slices. They turned the pieces
over and over. They tore the slices
Into Blireds and mashed the mass up
Into a lump In their balled fists. First
they tore hunks from the slices, then
they broke off bites, and wound up
by breaking off flakes, testing tho
big and slnall pieces as they broke
them off. Not entirely satlslled, they
seized knives and cut Into the cakes
again to test the uniformity of tho
grain. The loaf cake required almost
an hour for decision.
Prof. Snyder and Mrs. Snyder nar
rowed the competition for tlrst honois
down to No. Gl and No. 78. 'Jme and
time again they tasted these cakeJ,
cut' slices from them, and laid them
side by sldo to compare the texture,
irrain. etc. anJ flnallv agreed unon

more conservative In his remarks about
the bread. "Just say for mo that the
tlrHt prize winner's entry stood out In
bold relief from the 123 other entries of
blend, rolls, and biscuits." Ills mens
med remarks Indicated that the bread
content had disappointed him. Most of
he bread was "Just averaee" and some
"f It was burned, or "a little dark," as,
the women said an they watched their
bread being Judged.
