Lynbrook High School students, staff and community members competed in the Culinary Arts Club’s Cupcake War to Fight Hunger. Each of the 15 contestants baked 24 cupcakes representing a springtime theme. Among the entry names were “Blissful Blossoms,” “April Showers Bring May Flowers” and “Peach and Apricot Cobbler.” The first-place prize went to senior Alekki Markou for her entry entitled “Whimsical Lemon Cupcakes.”
Contestants sold their cupcake creations to raise money for Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale, a national campaign that mobilizes Americans to help end childhood hunger by holding bake sales in their communities.
“We raised over $800 for Share Our Strength’s fight against childhood hunger,” said club advisor Lauren Reganato. “Every dollar donated connects a hungry child with ten nutritious meals, which means we provided over 8,000 meals through the cupcake war bake sale!”
