Hillcrest Students Bake Up Some Christmas Spirit


A creation from Mrs. Sweeney’s Baking Basics class.

Students at Hillcrest High School in Mrs. Sweeney’s Baking Basics classes were baking up some Holiday Spirit and creative designs this week.  The students successfully completed their cake decorating assessment with creativity and skill.  The students worked in groups of 2 or 3 to complete the assessment.  

Collin Miller and Renisia Thurman made a christmas tree and presents out of cupcakes in Mrs. Sweeney’s Baking Basics class.

They demonstrated the following skills: safety and sanitation, workmanship, decorating skills, theme application, attractiveness, cake presentation, time management and work station organization.
