Normally, Brent Mosley’s two culinary arts classes can decide what dish they want to make each week; however, this particular week, they were given a challenge.

The challenge was to concoct a Halloween-themed dish from scratch that had the best texture, flavor, and presentation in the class.

Two days, Oct. 26 and 27, were given to complete this challenge. The winning group in each hour received extra credit and certificates for free wings from Buffalo Wild Wings.

Juniors Tieanna Burns, Josh Grigsby and Jacob Wahlberg, and seniors Angelina Davros and Chris Brown made up the second-hour winning group. They created chocolate cupcakes topped with white frosting and a spider oreo, along with pudding fluff topped with candy bones, gummy worms, and headstones. The three judges, Spanish teacher Josh Reister, assistant football coach Aaron James, and science teacher Chad Martin, decided their dishes were the best.

“Not to be that person, but I had a feeling that my group would come in first place,” Burns said. “Most groups in my class had some version of the pudding cups; however, my group also made the cupcakes, which I think made us stand out more.”

The fourth-hour winners were seniors Madeline Farnquist, Jaise Jones, De’ondre’ Gardner, Brian LeFear, and James Taylor. Their strawberry cheesecake made to look like the devil, complete with horns and bloody strawberry jam, was determined by the three judges, business teacher Judy Hunt, English teacher Emily Cook, and math teacher Kristia Whitaker, to be first-place worthy.

“Personally, I did not expect to win,” Farnquist said. “It seemed like all of the other groups in my hour put so much thought into their dishes while my group just kind of went with the flow and rolled with it. Our dish did taste really good, though, which definitely played a factor in our victory.”
