A winning face
Sugah Rush Bakery in Plaquemine and Brusly native Amanda Olano have been named grand prize winners in the “Make a Cake Face” sweepstakes sponsored by General Mills.
Contestants were asked to name their favorite area bakery and share a photo from a special “cake face” moment through a Facebook page.
Olano submitted a photo of her 1-year-old son’s first cake experience — he was enjoying a birthday cake made by Sugah Rush’s owner, Keri Berthelot.
Olano and Sugah Rush won $2,500 each in the contest.
