Daily Caller Editor Julia Nista and Daily Caller News Foundation Editor Emma Colton go head to head in an office-wide bakeoff.

Nista came to the office prepared. Armed with what can only be described as a delectable peanut buttercream chocolate cake, the spunky editor attempted to claim the title of the best baker at the Daily Caller offices.


Not allowing such a challenge to go unanswered, Colton came in with guns blazing, offering judges a traditional New York-Style cheesecake, a simply scrumptious double chocolate chip cookie, and a homemade brownie before delivering the final blow: her “complex” and seasonal pumpkin cake.

As the debate raged throughout the offices high above the derided K street in Washington, judges Phillip Stucky and Amber Athey were determined to declare a winner.

Only one question remained: who would emerge victoriously? Which editor would claim the title of “Best Baker In Washington?”

“I think I won,” Nista told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “Emma, I love you, but when it comes down to who baked better? Girl, it was me.”

“Emma should totally win the bake-off,” DCNF reporter Grace Carr opined on the epic battle. “It was like heaven in my mouth. Julia just doesn’t compare.”

The judges were shockingly split on the issue. “First of all, the peanut butter buttercream is amazing,” Stucky said about Nista’s dish.

Although the Daily Caller editor scored some key points with the judges based on presentation and taste, Colton’s near-perfect execution of the cheesecake wowed Athey.

“The crust is perfect,” the judge said about the soft, tender cheesecake. “That’s what you want on the edge of your cheesecake, that means it was baked well.”

Ultimately, the question could only be decided with a classic game of rock, paper, scissors, leading to a narrow victory for Colton and her plethora of baked goods.
