Overcoming challenges

Students sometimes face a challenge, which Godbold helps them overcome. For example, eighth-grader Jordan Gardner is diabetic, so his cake is sugar-free. To top it off and decorate it, Jordan and Godbold experimented with a cream cheese icing sweetened with saccharine.

Because it was thicker than the butter cream icing that other students used, mixing in the food color took some elbow grease, but Jordan was up to the challenge.

"It's hard to stir but it's getting there," he said as he worked the mixture into a bright green icing for his cake's wreath design.

Richbourg teachers Karen Lusk, Cindy Brunson and Diane Caton, who judged the finished cakes, awarded Alexy Trott and Cierra Leduc first prize for their elf-decorated cake.

Jesse Dobbs placed second for his ornaments design, Haley Stanton and Kaitlyn Potts placed third for their Christmas gifts, and Allysa Whitehead received honorable mention for her wreath with a pink bow.

The culinary students then shared their cakes with other Richbourg students.
