Valley Stream Memorial Junior High School students in Susan Krause’s Food and Nutrition classes participated in their own rendition of the Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” on April 12. The ninth-graders who take this elective course worked together in teams to select themes for creative cupcake confections.

A total of 19 groups planned out their designs from start to finish. Students used marshmallow fondant that they made from scratch to embellish their freshly baked desserts with decorations. Teachers and students from different classes volunteered as judges and shared in the excitement as they tested the treats.
