In December 2012, DC State Fair sponsor Whole Foods P Street put out the red carpet for our pie and cupcake winners. A team led by Daniel Thaeler transformed the store into an ode to some of D.C.’s best bakers, designing profiles and recipe cards for each baker and confection, and inviting the winners to share samples.

The people who went from Fair contestants on 8th Street to stardom on P Street included (pictured from left):

Best Cupcake: Esther Ventus with the Juan Carlos Cupcake, a chocolate-raspberry creation

Most Creative Pie: Frank Asher and Sarah McLaughlin with Vegan Pot Pie

Best Apple Pie: Megan McConville with her Classic Double Crusted Apple Pie

Most Creative Cupcake: Heidi Goldberg with The Sweet and Salty, a sweet potato cupcake with salted caramel buttercream
