Strut Your Bake

The rum dessert bake-off will be back on Saturday, September 28! You can also be a VIP taster. More details and registration forms are coming soon!

The bake-off was inspired by our longtime neighbor Katherine Carter, who baked a legendary dessert that brought her the title of Ms. Rum Cake at the very first East Atlanta Strut.

Ms. Carter passed away at age 101, but her spirit, and her spirit-infused desserts, live on.

Maybe you’re not a baker, but you like rum desserts. If so, join us to become a taster at the contest and vote for your top three tastes. Tasting tickets are $15 and are payable by Venmo, Square or Paypal at the event. You will receive a wristband, a tasting spoon, three voting tokens and access to our sponsor’s area. Your tasting donation will go to a local nonprofit. The ticket-buying form will be coming soon.

Big thanks to this year’s Strut Your Bake sponsor, Chairman’s Reserve Rum. We are grateful for their contribution and appreciate their support.
