As Chef Maiden's "Baking Fundamentals" courses near an end, students have to complete a performance and written assessment as part of their grade requirements. This semester's performance exam is to compete in the D-R version of Cupcake Wars. The requirements for the "war" are that there had to be 4 cupcakes, and the bakers had to include peppermint and cinnamon in their ingredients. All cupcakes had to be based upon a "winter" theme. Three more sections will be conducting their "wars" within the next week.
