Lorraine Fagela, winner of the Hemophilia Alliance of Maine’s baking contest, triumphs with the tasty entry.
When the Hemophilia Alliance of Maine announced the winners of its first ever fundraising baking competition, that honor went to Cornerstone Food Company, which produces a gluten free flan cake.
Ten bakers competed at the event, which was held Saturday in Portland. Others had to cancel because of the power outages that affected much of Maine last week, she said. Sallade-Packard has two sons with hemophilia, aged 13 and 10, who number among the 400 people in Maine identified with hemophilia and many others who suffer from bleeding disorders, she said. Sallade-Packard started the group in 2010. This is the first year the alliance has held a baking contest. Other winners were Black Tie Bakes with a people’s choice award, Little Marie’s Hand Made Pies for Best Cookie, Sugar Supply for Best Cake, and Congdon’s doughnuts for Best Donut. The contest was open to individuals and businesses.
