Cy-Fair ISD students sweep Cupcake Battle

Cy-Fair ISD culinary students had an impressive display at the Greater Houston Area Cupcake Battle, sponsored by the Hospitality Educators Association of Texas and held last weekend at Pasadena Rayburn High School.

The students swept first- through third-places and took home two other superlatives at the event, which featured approximately 140 entries from high school students in greater Houston.

Cy-Fair High School senior Kaylen Gonzalez won first place for her “Reese’s Cupcake,” followed by Cy-Fair senior Phillip Morado in second place for his “Triple Chocolate Pistachio Cupcake.” Cypress Ridge High School senior Nancy Lopez placed third for her “Mocha Cupcake.”

Cypress Woods High School sophomore Shelby Richey won the award in the Best Cake category for “The Turtle Cupcake,” and Cypress Springs High School senior Ajee Hayes won the award in the Most Elaborate Technique category for her “Peach Cobbler Cupcake.”

“Congratulations to the Cy-Fair ISD culinary students, who took five of the eight awards. It is a remarkable achievement to have their cupcakes chosen from the approximately 140 entries,” says career and technical education coordinator Mark Williams. “These students and their teachers worked diligently and their hard work paid off.”
