Judicial Cake Wars in Sarasota
On Feb. 18 members of the Sarasota County Bar Association were in for a real treat. Eight judges from the 12th Judicial Circuit showcased their cake decorating skills and members got to vote on the winning creations. The jurists paired off into four dessert-decking duos at the Judge Lynn N. Silvertooth Judicial Center in Sarasota and the R.L. Anderson Administration Building in Venice. The teams competed from separate courtrooms so everyone could remain distanced. Bar members viewed the competition by video. After all the good-natured ribbing and competition was over, the unanimous winners were Team Phyllis Galen/ Dana Moss. Also unanimous: Judges David Denkin and Hunter Carroll should never leave their day jobs to open a bakery.
