The Ninth Annual Cupcake Wars took place on 2/13 and 2/14. It was run by 6th grade boys and 7th/ 8th grade girls student leadership groups. The money raised was donated to the Cohen Children's Medical Center for children who are diagnosed with cancer.
What were the rules? Students had their parents sign a permission slip in order to participate. Each baker had to make 2 dozen cupcakes, and transport them in a disposable tray or dish. NO NUTS! Cupcakes had to be at the middle school library by 7:15 A.M. so if you baked cupcakes you had to make sure your parents dropped you off early at the front circle. Bakers had to tape an index card onto the dish or tray with their name, grade and a description of what they love.
The cupcakes were amazing! There were many great looking cupcakes that symbolized what we love! Some examples were Minecraft, Minions, Cookie Monster, Pancakes, and Chicken and Waffles.
