Just desserts in Lakeside Players contest

It was perhaps the most difficult decision three people had ever been asked to make.

It was perhaps the most difficult decision three people had ever been asked to make.

On Nov. 30, the Kaatza Lakeside Players (KLP) held a dessert contest at the Seniors Hall in Lake Cowichan.

Four of the town’s restaurants were asked to submit an entry for the occasion that would represent the theme of KLP’s upcoming Christmas show, a staged radio-play adaptation of “A Christmas Carol.”

The Shaker Mill, Jake’s on the Lake, the Cow Cafe, and Aroma’s were the four restaurants that entered the contest. It was the Cow Cafe’s dessert, created by Holly Weagant, that was declared the winner by the palates of the three discerning judges.

Before the name of the winner was announced, the mayor told the spectators who had come to witness the event that all the desserts were delicious, and praised the efforts of the four contestants.
