They include a Persian Love Cake, chilled zucchini soup, crab-squash blossom arancini and waffle cone filled with pulled pork.
Amateur and professional bakers are invited to enter The Midwife Center's annual cake competition and fundraiser party, which will be held April 5 at the Pittsburgh Opera in the Strip District.
This year's theme is "Taking it to the Nines: A Roarin' Good Time" in celebration of the growth of the center and the bold attitude of the Roaring Twenties.
"Amateur and professional bakers will compete in two different categories -- tasting cakes and decorated cakes, and you and our panel of judges will vote on cakes based on taste, decoration and use of the theme," says the website.
Winners will receive Whole Foods gift certificates and other prizes, plus bragging rights.
