Sweet dreams

“5001: A Baby Odyssey” was the theme of this year's Let Them Eat Cake! decorating and tasting contest hosted by The Midwife Center for Birth & Women's Health on May 18, a nod to the arrival of the center's 5,000th baby since it opened in 1982.

Maureen Joyce (Oakmont Bakery), Aundrea Ambeliotis (Mediterra Bakehouse), Sumi Chun (Sumi's Cakery), Naiara Freitas (Naiara's Cakes), Tara Newhouse (Crave), Christine Sullivan, Helena Nichols, Carrie Quinn and Jessica Earhart were among the pros and amateurs tempting the masses out of good behavior, although judging by the fast and furious slicing, not much arm-twisting was required.

“There's something about cake that everybody loves,” offered Nora Peace as she made her way past multitiered works of edible art.

Also spotted were board prexy Bethany Davidson, executive director Christine Haas, panel judge Chuck Kerber with Camera Bartolotta, and emcee Tom Baker.
