Kentucky State Fair

 This year at the Kentucky State Fair, John Marsolek Jr. won first place and a blue ribbon in the Junior Culinary division. 

The 13-year-old made a Snoopy cake for his dog-theme entry. 

He also won a third-place ribbon during the Bullitt County Fair for the Chocolate dessert contest. The previous year, he placed second. 

This was not the first time John won at the Kentucky State Fair. In 2010, his "star" themed cake won a blue ribbon for cake decorating. 

He is a home-schooled freshman who has been blessed with many talents in culinary and other areas.
