Pastry Arts students to provide “landmark” cakes for 200th celebration
Tommy Tucker, owner of Babykakes bakery, discusses his bicentennial birthday cake
project in class.
You could call it the icing on the cake for some baking and pastry arts students at
Columbus State who are taking part in a very unique cake competition. It’s all tied
to the 200Columbus Bicentennial Birthday Celebration.
The dilemma for organizers was how to make - and pay for - birthday cakes for the
estimated 3,000 guests expected at the birthday celebration February 10. Columbus
State had an educational solution: Students would come to the rescue! 200Columbus
organizers ate it up.
