Remington College’s Dallas Culinary Arts degree program encourages creativity in student projects, but the “Wedding Cake Design Challenge” in Chef Sandra Cohen’s Introduction to Bakeshop class literally takes the cake!
Chef Cohen assigns her Culinary Arts class two group projects each quarter, and with her guidelines and requirements in mind, the students begin researching a wedding cake design that reflects their styles and personalities.
Drawing inspiration from books, websites, photos, and their own lives, the students work together to create a unique wedding cake design that is entirely edible.
Chef Cohen encourages the students to test their creativity in learning how to create each piece, no matter how intricate or delicate it may be, and she stands by prepared to assist students with the skills and procedures it takes to produce each masterpiece.
Once the cakes are completed, the students display them in the Culinary Arts building, where other students and staff are encouraged to come by and vote for their favorite.
Winners are selected from both the morning and evening Culinary Arts classes, and once the voting is finalized, students are welcome to take their works of art home to share with family and friends.
Students Dominique McFarlin, Sonya Danforth-David, and Meghan Lynett set out to “make a simple cake while at the same time surpassing the norm by going over and beyond with a touch of elegant, creative detail.”
Their cake, pictured left, features hand-made pink lilies crafted from gum paste and a black fondant ribbon with delicate edible pearl detail.
