The West High Advanced Foods Class put on a Cake Walk Demonstration. This project incorporated the demonstration of skills in food preparation, presentation, creativity, and teamwork in order to create a unique, tasty cake. Each group decided on a “new” cake to research and put together for a contest, and of course taste test, for several members of the West High Staff. The students worked extensively to research, plan, and make their cakes. Cakes that were made for the contest included a multicolored, red velvet cake, three-tiered Snickers Cake, a Batman-themed cake, a multi-tiered peanut butter cake, chocolate covered strawberry cake, and the favorite of the day, Oreo cake, as pictured.
