The icing was slathered and the decorations placed just so during the annual Marbletown Kids’ Cake Decoration Contest Friday in Marble Hall at Delphos Wesleyan Church. Local baker Alex Benavidez provides each child with a 4-inch round cake, icing and gummy worms, frog, gum drops, etc., to create their own sweet masterpiece.

Winners of the annual Marbletown Kids’ Cake Decoration Contest were Tylynn Shaner, 12, and Gwen Wagner, 7.

Teens got in the act to show off their cake decorating skills in the Marbletown Teen Cake Decorating Contest. Winners were Colin White, first place with his Frog Island cake; Kenzie Brinkman, second, with her frog cake; and Kylie Gossett, third, with her flower cake.



Fred Wagner and Nick Mericle were the winners of the second annual Marbletown Corn Hole Contest. The pair battled seven other teams to come out on top. They won $80 and the second-place finishers, Chuck Wilson and Eric “Wally” Wallace, took second and $40.

Events continue Saturday with the 5K at 8 a.m., children’s events from 10 a.m. to noon, the parade at 1 p.m. and the Golf Cart Poker Run at 2 p.m.
