On the afternoon of July 14 at the air-conditioned Rice Lake Senior Center, local chef Don Putnam spent 3 1/2 hours talking to 4-H cake project members and judging around 75 entries in the Barron County 4-H Cake Revue. After awarding their ribbons, project members and their families carefully transported their creations to an air-conditioned, enclosed area in the Expo Building at the Barron County Fairgrounds. Stop by and see these and other creative cakes while at the Barron County Fair.
