Abaco Central High School (ACH) Teacher Ruby Rolle spearheaded a Baking Competition dubbed “Battle of the Cakes” at the school on Feb. 25. Although the competition was open to the entire school, only 10th grade students participated.
The competition was based on a 10-point scale being awarded for presentation, taste, texture and icing. With five entries, the competition was underway once judges cut a sample of each cake to taste and then grade them following the criteria given.
The cakes came in all sorts of exciting flavors, colours and descriptions: Coconut Raspberry with Cream Cheese Topping; Chocolate Cake with Buttermilk Topping sprinkled with nuts; Old-Fashioned Pound Cake with Cream Cheese Topping; Pink Velvet with Buttermilk Topping; and Blue and Red Velvet with Yellow Cream Cheese Topping.
The bakers of the cakes were revealed after the cakes were judged. Amelia Gomez placed first with her Pink Velvet with Buttermilk Topping cake; and Mrs. Rolle captured second and third with her Chocolate Cake and Old-Fashioned Pound Cake, respectively.
The other two participants were Traeshoun Swain who baked the Blue and Red Velvet cake; and Deltinique Greene with the Coconut Raspberry cake. Judges were Julia Mills, Marisa Allen and Canishka Alexander.
