Cakes should be dropped off at the State Library (1500 Senate Street) between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Friday, April 14, 2017.  Library visitors may vote for their favorite cake any time between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.  When voting is closed, the votes will be counted and winners will be announced.  After winners are announced, the cakes will be cut and served. Winners will receive special prizes and photos of the winning cakes will be posted on the State Library's website and social media.
