Pi Day - Part 1

At my day job I challenged my coworkers to our first ever Pi Day competition.  I was thinking this would be a friendly little food day, boy was I wrong.  It turned into a no holds barred scrum.  In hindsight I probably should have come up with a list of rules, but it was much more fun watching the contestants duke it out.  Think of a down and dirty high school student body election and you'll start to get the picture.  It was a tasty and entertaining day.

One of our valiant competitors, doubting her baking skills.
It was actually pretty tasty.
This pie was home decorated, but not homemade.  It also happened to be the first place winner.
Lunch!
Our second place winner, homemade chocolate cream pie.
The entries, ready for battle.
Nice try K.!
Peanut butter oatmeal whoopie pies, uh yeah they're that good.
Vote for Pedro, he'll make all your wildest dreams come true!
Our third place winner.
This contestant's husband bought this pie, decorated it at home and brought it to her to enter.  He gets the good husband of the month award.  It was a pretty tasty peanut butter pie too.
A late less than homemade entry but still delicious.
Let the voting (and campaigning) begin!
This competitor, let us call him "Jorge", decided to use the whole no-rules thing to his advantage.
"Jorge" actively NOT bribing people to vote for his pie.  Boss Tweed would be so proud.

The competitors were fierce.

The voting slogan was "vote early, vote often", and we did.
