Fallbrook High students achieve sweet success with cake creations

The Foods & Nutrition classes at Fallbrook High School held their annual Decorated Cake Contest the last part of February. Six teams of four students each designed and constructed a cake in each class period with judging held on Feb. 27.

The students had 10 class periods to design, make and decorate their cakes with two boxed cake mixes, homemade fondant and a choice of nine decorating techniques. Teachers from around the school rated the cakes on the base coat, edge trim, use of color, neatness, creativity and overall presentation.

The project required the students to use their planning, team work, leadership and time management skills. The winning cakes from each class period were put on display in the school library.
