Kentucky State Fair to bakers: Make it from scratch, or be scratched

A new sign in the culinary hall of the Kentucky State Fair warns people entering cakes, pies and other homemade goods that they must be just that – homemade.
    
Last year, a blue ribbon awarded for a buttermilk pie was stripped after fair officials learned the maker used a store-bought crust. The woman who made the pie said her own crust doesn't turn out right and she wasn't aware of the rule.
    
Now, the Courier-Journal reports that the new sign at the Louisville fairgrounds reads, "By entering an item in the culinary department of the Kentucky State Fair, you are acknowledging and certifying that you have used no commercially produced products such as frozen pie shells, boxed cake mixes, canned frostings or any like products."
    
The fair is next week.
