Temple University’s student organization, Let’s Bake! TU, hosted their inaugural cupcake decorating contest. As a student organization with a mission to bring the delight of baking to Temple students, their competition allowed for members to compete using the techniques they’ve been learning all semester.
Let’s Bake! hosts workshops, as well as campus fundraisers, to teach decorating techniques. Their purpose is to bring this recreational activity to students, allowing them to destress and create something beautiful and delicious! This organization has over 250 members, and has progressed from a one star organization to a three star one in just one semester. The increasing popularity of baking by Temple students has allowed Let’s Bake! to host even more events, like the gingerbread house workshop the organization hosted just before the holidays.
This contest consisted of three rounds, each with their own themes. Each round lasted ten minutes, with Temple sophomore and the organization’s President, Jemi Patel, serving as judge. The first round was Beauty and the Beast-themed, meanwhile the second round served as a tribute to popular college student hangout, Starbucks. The final round was inspired by the popular springtime adage, “April showers bring May flowers.”
The winning student, freshman film major, Jasmine, won with her interpretations of Princess Belle’s beloved dress and rainy cupcakes.
