Of the Icing

Three times each school year the high schoolers at PSCS engage in what we call “Intensives Week.” We stop the regular schedule and for a week the students participate in just one activity all day long for 5 days. Yup, it’s intense.

Ella chose to participate in a cake-decorating intensive called “Icing” so she spent the week learning how to make various icings and apply them to cakes. Her final project was to conceive of and decorate a cake, the end result being shown in today’s photo. As you can see, she went for a seasonal theme.

Oh, if the blog title isn’t resonating for you, think of the song “My Country ’tis of Thee.” There’s “sweet land of liberty,” followed by, “of the icing.”

    1. Funnier yet? That’s what I actually thought the lyric was when I was a kid and had to sing the song in school. What 9 year-old understands the phrase “of thee I sing?”

  1. I love this. I so want to visit your school one day. I am just tickled that you all have intensives such as cake icing. This looks fun in every way. 🙂
