For the second year, New Jersey’s Montclair Bread Company is hosting a Retro Bake-Off at its retail space in Montclair.

Set for Wednesday, July 4, the community event encourages participants to create classic desserts from the 1950’s and 1960’s. Desserts such as ambrosia salad, dump cakes, and Jell-O molds will be some of the items entered into the competition.

Each entrant will submit two versions of a dessert – the judged entry, which should serve 6-10 people, and a larger version of their entry, with at least twenty full size servings. The overall winner will receive the Retro Bake-Off Champion trophy, while winners in separate categories will receive medals, baking supplies, gift certificates, and other fun prizes.

There will also be a Kids Category, with entrants expected to submit only one version of a dessert that serves 6-10 people.

Retro attire such as bobby socks and saddle shoes are also encouraged for Montclair Bread Co.’s event. It’s a great way for locals to celebrate America on Independence Day, while also celebrating an iconic era in American history.
