ZEELAND — A small-town baker has earned an impressive honor, claiming the title of champion during the first-ever Silos Baking Competition in Waco, Texas.

The competition aired on Magnolia Network — owned by Warner Bros. Discovery and Chip and Joanna Gaines of “Fixer Upper” — on Sunday, June 12, and remains available to stream on Discovery+.

Annie Paul poses with her Summer Berry Bars during the first-ever Silos Baking Competition in Waco, Texas.

Chip and Joanna own several businesses under the Magnolia name, including a remodeling and design firm, a realty brokerage and a high-end furniture store. But located just next door to Magnolia Market is Silos Baking Co.

The little white building was remodeled by Chip and Joanna during season four of “Fixer Upper” and now carries Joanna’s personal recipes. This year, the couple decided to invite six bakers from across the country to compete for a chance to win $25,000 and have their treat featured on the bakery’s summer menu.

Annie Paul was one of them.

Paul is the owner of wholesale bakery A P Baked Goods in Zeeland. She’s a West Michigan native, and she’s always had a sweet tooth.
