I wanted to pass this onto to all those great bakers out there. Here's a way to win money and help support the battle against breast cancer. It's the "Bake for the Cure" at this years Western Idaho Fair's Fleischmann's Yeast Bread Baking Contest.

Here's what you can win:

There's $400 in cash prizes at the Western Idaho Fair plus $3000 in national grand prizes. For each entry nationwide, ACH Food Companies Inc. also donates $10 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure on behalf of its contestants and its Fleischmann’s Yeast brand.

You can make any flavor or shape of baked good using any type of Fleischmann’s Yeast. There's a main category (calling for any yeast bread) and a second "Whole Grain Bread" category.

The main category awards $150 for first place, $75 for second and $50 for third. The “Whole Grain" category has a $100 top prize and a new $50 runner-up prize.

For contest details and complete official rules, contact the Western Idaho Fair entry office at 208-
287-5663 or visit the contest section at
