The Cupcake Wars have arrived at Great Hollow Middle School this week.
After school on Wednesday, students in the FCCLA club collaborated to bake cupcakes. And on Thursday, the competition began as members of the club used designs they had sketched to decorate their cupcakes, which will now be reviewed by judges.
Students added coloring to their icing to fit their concepts, and some painted faces on marshmallows to enhance their cupcake designs.
Sprinkles, melted chocolate, pretzels and Twizzlers were among the other sweets used.
One student confessed at the start of Day 2 that the only thing about the competition that concerned her was eating too many of the sweets and not having enough remaining to design her cupcake.
A clock counted down as the students decorated their cupcakes to increase the feel of a competition.
The Family, Career and Community Leaders of America club at Great Hollow is led by advisors Erin Hall, Anne D’Addario and Kristen Grismer.
Donning aprons, the trio offered tips, including how to set up the piping bag that allows icing to be dispensed onto the cupcakes.
