Colony Square Mall in Zanesville was filling up with sweet treats on Wednesday…

The Carr Center is hosting its 26th Annual Cake Auction beginning Thursday. Committee member Yvonne Factor said all the bakers brought in their creations and set up shop Wednesday afternoon.

"All the cake bakers are bringing in their cakes, and we have almost 400 cakes, sponsors, that are participating this year, and that’s very exciting," said Factor.

The auction itself will take place on Thursday and Friday, but voting for the People’s Choice Award will take place Wednesday night from 6 to 9. Factor said everyone’s welcome to enjoy the displays.

"Just want people to come on out. Even if they’re just looking, that’s great. Buying is better. We have some really unique cakes as we always have every year and we just appreciate people being a part of this great opportunity, and supporting the Carr Center."

Chef Bill Bird from Zandex will also host a cake decorating demonstration Wednesday evening. You can hear the auction live on AM 1240 radio and streamed on – starting at 8:15 Thursday morning.
