PORTAGE - Matthew Fyfe's age - he's just 11 years old - is no reflection on his baking ability.
This fifth grader has the touch.
Witness his stunning success at the just-completed Wood County Fair, where his snickerdoodle cookies won best of show for the entire baking competition, adults and all. That's the single top award for all the baking categories.
Asked how it was that his cookies so totally blew away the competition, Matthew modestly admitted he had "no idea why."
Younger sister Anna, 9, chimed in with a possible answer: "They're very yummy."
"I wanted to make sure when I was rolling them out that they were nice and neat and round so when they came out of the oven they would be round," and thus impress the judges, Matthew said.
