Students participating in the first competition (the bake off) will have three categories to choose from -- baking, pastries and confectionary. Each student will register for the category he or she wishes to participate in. There is no participation fee for this event.
The participants will be judged on a number of different criteria such as taste and presentation. Because students will be judged on taste, they should prepare some samples for the judges and other guests. Each participant should plan on enough samples to feed about 10 people. The winner of each category will receive a prize.
Students will also have the choice to compete in a cake decorating contest with a partner. They will be required to be bring a plain, two-tiered cake (already prepared with their choice of frosting) in advance. They are also required to provide their own cake utensils and tools. In addition, students are welcome to bring another frostings, food coloring or piping tools; however, it is not required.
They then will be required to come up with a cake design with the decorations given to them. The decorations will be follow a certain theme (e.g. wedding, birthday, Fourth of July, etc.). Each partnership will have 30 minutes to complete their cake. They will be judged on certain criteria such as taste, execution and presentation. There will only be one overall winner for this competition.
Door prizes will offered to those who come and support their friend. They will be given out at 6:45 p.m., 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. The event will be held Friday, March 14 from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
