Our American Heritage Girl Troop has 3 award ceremonies a year. At the first one we had some of our girls share a musical piece with us and that was really great (plus it counted towards a badge for them). This time I wanted to do something a little different and so I took a cue from Cub Scouts and did a cake bake.
The girls were asked to bake and decorate a cake – all homemade (though mixes were okay) and completely edible. These were the categories for awards:
Best Patriotic theme (flag/red,white&blue/USA!)
Most Suitably Named
Not all the girls participated but the ones that did really seemed to have loved doing it. Every girl got a patch for participating plus some of our awards were 1st, 2nd, and 3rd so every girl ended up with a ribbon. I was really impressed with the cakes and ideas! I only wish I had taken pictures. I just can’t get pictures of all these events when I’m in charge and Roy isn’t there to do so for me! One of our dads took a lot of pictures though so I hope to share more with you later.
For now I want to share Sam’s cake. She researched online. Picked one – and came up with a plan. There are 3 layers and they are books. She did everything – baking, decorating, cleaning. I’m really proud of her.
