Coconut cake takes top prize at Ag Expo photos: RIC DUGAN / staff photographer Mollie Spencer transformed an everyday yellow cake recipe into a grand champion by adding coconut and pecans. Mollie's Coconut Cake won top prize during the Washington County Ag Expo Saturday, Aug. 5, at Washington County Agricultural Education Center in Sharpsburg. And Hagerstown resident Karl Pile paid top dollar - $110 - for it that night at the 4-H/FFA cake auction. Mollie entered a cake using the same recipe last year, but "it didn't really work out," she said.

It looked like a pie of sticky buns, which isn't a bad thing. Most importantly, it tasted wonderful. Carolyn Etzler's topsy-turvy apple pie was one of the more unusual looking pies in The Herald-Mail's second annual pie contest. But more importantly, it was ruled the best pie. "The crust was amazing and the presentation was beautiful," said Hagerstown resident Paul Foltz, 28, retail assistant manager and contest judge. "It wasn't overly sweet, but enough to satisfy your sweet tooth," said Roslyn Levine, customer service/retention manager for The Herald-Mail's Circulation Department.
