Previous Student Labs
ICA Group Cake Projects
Student groups were expected to produce a Six inch, four (4) layer cake with either a Butter Cream, Cream Cheese, or Fondant icing. Each cake has a crumb coat prior to the regular decorative icing. Student groups created a poster drawing of their designs prior to the production. For most students this was their first attempt following a baking formula using Grams and/or baking a cake in general. Students demonstrated their ability to follow direction, show their creativity, and work as part of a team.
