Local Dundas County mayors Steven Byvelds and Tony Fraser sat alongside SDSG Conservative candidate Eric Duncan to serve, or rather be served, as guest judges.

“There are a lot of perks to this job and this is definitely one of them!” joked North Dundas Mayor Tony Fraser.

When asked if he was cutting himself off of sweets for a while after eating so many tarts he laughed and said, “I have a sweet tooth that I’ll never get rid of! This type of thing should be held more often!”

There were a total of eight entries. The winning tarts were baked by Christine Schneckenberger.

Fraser purchased one of Adrian Lee’s who placed second. He said it was “delicious”.
