Bakery students took a mental vacation from the cold last Thursday to heat up the kitchens in GRCC’s third annual “Cupcake Wars” event. Students worked in teams to create over-the-top cupcakes which they then presented in elaborate, Dr. Seuss-themed dioramas. Teams prepared, baked, and decorated cupcakes from 7:30-10:30 a.m., and judging began at 11 a.m.
Here are this year’s winners in all categories:
- Best overall cupcake: Horton’s Whos – Kortni Dicks, Laura Kersten, Kris Poleski
- Best display/presentation: Gio and the Pussycats – Gio Toffolo, Alison Dopke, Katie Courtney
- Best packaging: Horton’s Whos – Kortni Dicks, Laura Kersten, Kris Poleski
- Overall highest score: Gio and the Pussycats – Gio Toffolo, Alison Dopke, Katie Courtney (the second place team was only 0.5 points behind – the closest competition yet!)
Congratulations to GRCC’s 2019 Cupcake Wars winners and to all of the students who worked so hard to create these amazing displays!
