The amazing moldy pies of the 2011 Montgomery County Fair

This year's Montgomery County Agricultural Fair had oversize cows, playful pygmy goats and adorable piglets running races. But there was another life-form lurking in the wings. After days of sitting around in hot and humid weather, the baked-goods exhibition had become completely overrun by mold. Here are some of the formerly delicious pies and cakes, now more of a prize to curious microbiologists.
