Last year’s competition was fierce. As with this year, the Taste-Off saw awards given for best overall plain butter tart, best locally-sourced butter tart, best alternative butter tart and People�s Choice. The winners, in the same order, were Sweet Kitchen, The Whistle Stop, Yellow Cake Bakery and Doo Doo�s Bakery.

Rumour has it, this year will have these barons of butter tarts bringing some pretty whacky concoctions with them to the competition! 

We spoke to one baker who was on a mission to combine the tangy-velvety taste of a lemon meringue pie with a butter tart, while another was attempting to fuse their favorite chocolate bar with a runny, pecan butter tart.

Needless to say, the tasting portion of the day is going to be amazing — whatever your preference.
