Cupcake Wars at C-NS

Ashley D'Imperio, a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher at Cicero-North Syracuse High School, shared pictures from a recent project done by students in her Hospitality and Pastry Arts class. The students completed their own version of Cupcake Wars as part of their class.

Ashley said, “We had previously discussed recipe reading, and different cake decorating methods, and we even practiced piping skills using instant mashed potatoes.”

For the project, students brainstormed a class theme, and voted on the theme “childhood memories”. Groups then found their own recipes for cupcakes and frosting from scratch, as well as planned how to creatively decorate and present cupcakes that fit our class theme.

In the end, the groups ended up with cupcakes representing Sesame Street, Mickey and Minnie, Monsters Inc, and the cake from Max and Ruby.
