Pound cake winners

Nancy Twigg, chair of the May 7 Pound Cake contest, announced its winners as follows:

Kim Cortes, first place for Key Lime Cheese Kissed Pound Cake;

Jodie Nelson, second place for Lemon Sour Cream; and

Keegan Walls, third place for Decadent Dark Chocolate Pound Cake.

“The judges had a difficult time deciding the winners. Two were tied so they re-tasted one cake and asked to see three cakes again. It was a close contest,” Twigg said.
