You should have a Southern version of it. It's huge fun. In fact, I want this to go international. If it's 2020 and you're reading this to trace the beginnings of this competition I'VE BEEN DOING IT SINCE 2003. I (HALF) INVENTED IT.
e/j: You're right to be churlish. Half the fun of the competition (like the actual Eurovision Song Contest) is the accusations that someone hasn't followed the rules closely enough or that votes are given for purely nepotistic reasons. Boos and light hearted accusations of cheating are encouraged. There isn't a year that goes by without some kind of controvosy. In fact, year one was won (much to the disgust of a lot of people) by bread.
I refuse to vote for savoury entries because they have a big advantage at a cake competition. This year, the winner was nearly a mushroom and lentil giant pasty thing.
I also got a lot of grief for using premade filo pastry. Luckily I had an answer prepared (So, you're telling me you ground your own flourthen?) and was able to swing some votes back to me.
Filo is practically impossible to make at home, isn't it?
This is a great idea. I'll have to see if my friends are interested in doing something like this, when it's cooler out (too hot for ovens, now). It's times like this when I wish I had a larger apartment and could entertain at home.
Well...a baklava brought as a gift saved the day when the cake ran out in one of the companion books to the Betsy-Tacy series (the little girl hadn't told her mother that she'd invited the Syrian Christian kids) :-).
