It’s time for one of our FAVORITE Pack activities- the CUB CAKE BAKE, Friday, February 25th at the Hillsdale Cafeteria.
It should be a great, messy time. Please plan to arrive no later than 6:45 PM with your baked cake, icing, decorations and decorating tools so you can get registered and be ready to start decorating. The Pack will not be providing icing this year (the bulk icing we used to get did not spread very well).
Below you will find the rules as well as some other details regarding allergy information. I know it is a lot of information, but please read through so you have all the information needed.
**** Since everyone will be busy working on their masterpieces, no food will be for sale at this Pack Meeting.
Now on to the Cake Bake Rules:
- This is a Cub – Parent/Family/Mentor project. If 2 or 3 Cubs and their partners want to coordinate with each other and work as a Team, that is OK, too. They will just have to share the prize if they win.
- Baking will be done at home; Decorating must be done at Pack Meeting. Please decide on a theme and bring appropriate supplies. White, butter cream frosting will be supplied (please bring your own food coloring if you want different colors).
- Just about any (appropriate) cake theme is welcome.
- No store-bought cakes!
- Cake mixes are fine.
- Must be a cake, no rice crispy treat sculptures.
- Entire creation must be edible, including all decorations.
- Please register your cake when you first arrive.
- Cakes will be judged and prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
- Most Colorful
- Most Creative
- Best Looking
- Most Interesting
- Most Unusual
- Best Scout Theme
- Judges’ Choice
- Scouts’ Choice
- You are responsible for your work area and your cake. Please remove all debris and clean your area prior leaving the Pack Meeting. Floors and tables will be lined with plastic sheeting. If time allows, after the judging, several cakes will be selected, via a drawing, to be cut and shared with the Pack. If you want to take your cake home intact, please do not submit your cake for this drawing. Intact cakes may also be donated to the Salvation Army or West Chester Food Cupboard. Any other cakes or cake remnants must be removed by their owners.
If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Beam.
To be sure our kids are safe, please bring a list of the ingredients used in your cake.
