Students in the Davies High School Family and Consumer Science (FACS) Culinary Academy classes are in the midst of an exciting part of their baking unit. The students will face off Thursday, April 25 to see who can create the best cupcake in a contest patterned after the hit show “Cupcake Wars” on The Food Network. Approximately 48 FACS students will compete as teams, each composed of three or four students.

Teams have been required to use two “secret” ingredients in their cupcake recipe, revealed to them during the trial-run baking phase of the contest, which took place in class on Monday. The teams baked their final cupcakes during class on Wednesday.

On Thursday, students will decorate their pre-baked cupcakes and plate them for a judging panel. As in the television show, the contest is themed. The theme for this year’s contest is “Never-Ending Winter,” so final cupcake presentations must reflect that subject in some way. The judges will rate the final cupcakes on the criteria of taste, appearance, and the use of the theme and secret ingredients.
