South Hills Middle School Teacher Turns “Cupcake Wars” into an Educational Lesson

Students in Mrs. Dayton’s food and nutrition class at South Hills Middle School are learning about carbohydrates through a baking competition. The class split into teams to strategize and built their treats for the ‘Cupcake Wars’ inspired competition. Faculty and staff at SHMS then judged the finished cupcakes, but the decision was hard with so many outstanding designs. Mrs. Dayton says she got the idea to turn ‘Cupcake Wars’ into an educational opportunity from other teachers in the District.

Great job South Hills’ 9th-grade students on your imaginative and interesting creations. You can check out the cupcake art for yourself in the photo gallery.
