My 8th grade students participated in a cake bake off the last 2 days.  One group actually made their entire cake from scratch, however they ate their's before pictures were taken!  It was delicious so there was not much to take a picture of.  The other 3 groups used boxed cake mixes.  One group made their own icing which was better then what I make!  They all did a great job.  I love seeing their creative minds come alive with the food they make.
