LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A new sign posted in the culinary hall of the Kentucky State Fair warns people entering cakes, pies and other homemade goods that they must be just that — homemade.
The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1IDC6QI ) reports the sign in the South Wing of the fairgrounds in Louisville reads, "By entering an item in the culinary department of the Kentucky State Fair, you are acknowledging and certifying that you have used no commercially produced products such as frozen pie shells, boxed cake mixes, canned frostings or any like products."
Last year, a blue ribbon awarded for a buttermilk pie was stripped after fair officials learned the maker had used a store-bought crust. The woman who made the pie said her own crust doesn’t turn out right and she wasn’t aware of the rule.
