Sugar and zest are put to the baking test

Culinary students prepare cake walk to showcase their work

The students in Del Mar’s baking and pastry program prepared sweet treats for their final exam in the advanced pastry course.

The combinations of flavors and creativity tempted everyone to break their diets April 26 in the Restaurant Management Building at West Campus.

The event included a cake walk, with elaborate, themed cakes meant to resemble the hit video game “The Legend of Zelda,” a guitar and more. Students also created a special cake to celebrate their 2018 graduation and another spotlighting the baking and pastry program. The students tested their creativity, decorative skills and other techniques learned during the semester.

The instructor of course, Claudia Hurt, said students had been collaborating on the assignment for at least the past six weeks.

Student Ebra Martinez called it a great experience.

“A lot of work and stress before the preparation. My cake was the one of the promotion 2018,” Martinez said.

In addition to the cake walk, cupcakes were also sold for $1.
