Students Get Creative at Cupcake Wars

By Emily Ye

Cupcake Wars, a competition for student bakers, was held at Bay Farm School on Nov. 5.

7th grader Valentina Suarez, who participated in the competition, said, “It’s a fun experience and the best part isn’t winning, but baking the cupcakes.”

Awards were given in three categories: creativity, taste, and uniqueness. One prize was awarded for each category in groups: K-2, grades 3-5, and grades 6-8. The prizes were golden cupcake trophies.

“It’s a fun, cool way to show off,”  Ryan Liu, an 8th grader and winner in the Grades 6-8 category, said.
