The four judges and I went through the 64 fabulous DMBLGiT entries and somehow managed to score them in Aesthetics, Edibility, and Originality without pulling out our hair in agonized indecision. But I’m not complaining—stiff competition is a very good thing. So without much further ado… Drum roll… Trumpets… DMBLGiT? pom pom […]
