20140424_190455On Monday April 17th 2014, local visiting artist and Westfield alumni Alicia Eisenmann, proud owner of Delish Cakes in Old Town Bloomingdale, demonstrated to students and staff how she creates beautiful, as well as delicious, cakes that look like works of art themselves.

Students, staff and community members then registered to join Westfield’s own Cake challenge for Charity by creating their own cake to be raffled off at Portfolio night with all proceeds going to the Bloomingdale Township’s Food Pantry.

Everyone who participated in baking and decorating a cake for the Challenge received 1 free raffle ticket to try and win whatever cake they wish from the cake raffle. Additional raffle tickets were sold for anyone who wanted to win a cake. Tickets were $1 each or 6 for $5 or 13 for $10 or a wingspan for $20.2

All of the 66 cakes entered into the Cake Challenge were raffled off during Portfolio Night, April 24th 2014 at 7:00pm just prior to the start of the Honors Award Assembly. With all of the Raffle tickets sold, we raised a total of $628.00 for the Bloomingdale Township’s Food Pantry.

Based on all of the cake creations entered into the Cake Challenge for Charity, there was 1 Cake Challenge Student winner and a Cake Challenge Teacher winner who each received a Delish Cakes gift card from Alicia Eisenmann, our visiting cake artist and proud owner of Delish Cakes in Old Town Bloomingdale. The student winner was 7th Grader Emily Kress and the Teacher Winner was Mrs. Jensen. For more information about Delish Cakes, visit their website at http://www.delishcakes.net/   

A huge ‘Thank You’ goes out to everyone who made this event such a great success – we could not have do it without the support of everyone who participated and showed support at the raffle!
