The 46th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest

As I post this, the announcement of the million dollar grand prize winner in the 46th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest is just hours away.

The 100 finalists prepared their contest-worthy recipes this morning in a ballroom at the Aria Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, then turned them in for judging.


I put together this photo slideshow, featuring interviews I did today with a few of the finalists. It also includes some thoughts from Mark Addicks, senior vice president and chief marketing officer at General Mills.

I also interviewed Ann Simonds, president of Pillsbury USA, about the Bake-Off Contest.


And, I talked about the Bake-Off Contest this morning with Anton Vincent, president of our frozen food division.


For more photos, check out Pillsbury’s Photo Galleries. In addition, Pillsbury posted a time-lapse video of the setup for the contest, and video of the Grand March by the finalists this morning.

Don’t forget to follow the #BakeOff hashtag on Twitter or Instagram.

We’ll share the exciting news about the winner, later tonight!
