Cream Puff Eating Contest

Heather Wojciechowski-DeCaire was declared the winner of the annual Celebrity Cream Puff contest today at the Wisconsin State Fair for the second year in a row.

Wojciechowski-DeCaire, a an employee and representative of the Milwaukee Admirals was chosen the winner by audience applause when the contest was declared a draw by judges.

“It feels super good to win for a second time,” she said.

Although the cream puffs are the main event, celebrities are part of the draw for some attendees.

“I am excited to see who shows up as a celebrity.” said, Gale Pearson, of Wauwatosa, who was attending the fair from nearby.

Local celebrities included the 2014 winner of the Fairest of the Fair Kaitlyn Riley, several popular local radio hosts – Riggs from 103.7, Ryan Miller from 102.1, Stan Atkinson from B93.3, and a staff member from onmilwaukee.com.

Each of the ten contestants first introduced themselves, received a box of 18 miniature cream puffs and was given only 90 seconds to eat as many as they possibly could. If that wasn’t hard enough, a rule was announced that the competitors could only pick up the box with their hands.

Then, the competition began.

Cream puffs were flying all over the table, as each contestant ate as fast, and as much as they could.

Before they knew it, the time was up, and the contestants were ready to be judged. The referee and the cream puff representative intently walked around the table, assessing each person’s box.

“I feel really full,” says Wojciechowski-DeCaire, after eating more than half of her mini cream puffs.

“I prepare in my head mentally.”
She attends the fair nearly everyday and although she enjoys the variety of activities that the fair has to offer, winning the cream puff eating contest is her favorite memory.
