Seven culinary students participated in the Regional Proficiency and STAR events competition in February offered by FCCLA (Family, Career and Community Leaders of America).  On February 6th, at the College of DuPage, five students competed in Fondant Cake Decorating for Occupational Students and 2 competed in Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation.  Cake decorating involved demonstrating several piping techniques and decorating a cake in fondant.  The Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation event had students creating a company, a website and presentation on their business.

Second Place ribbons were awarded to Hannah Eichelberger (Romeoville) and Alyssa Warren (Reed Custer) for Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation.  A First Place ribbon along with special honors of Most Outstanding Performance and Product in Fondant Cake was awarded to Carolyn Lebica (Romeoville) for her Ratatouille movie themed cake. A first place ribbon was also awarded to Ryne Thacker (Plainfield East) for The Fault in our Stars, a second place ribbon was given to Taylor Toures (Plainfield East) for Finding Nemo, Heather Walsh (Plainfield East),  and Merielle Marshall (Plainfield East) for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  These students will now be competing at the State level in Springfield on April 17th.      Let’s wish them luck.
