First of Two Holiday Dinners for Senior Citizens at Parkland to Feature Cupcake Wars Winners

Students at Parkland High School will host area Senior Citizens for dinner followed by a show.


A different kind of senior will be eating in Parkland High School's cafeteria tonight. The first of two holiday dinners for Senior Citizens will begin at 5:30, followed by a concert performance at 7 from the freshman and sophomore bands.

A special treat will be featured tonight from students taking a Family and Consumer Sciences unit on advanced baking. These students recently competed in a Cupcake Wars-style competition, modeled after the popular Food Network show.

Students worked in groups to come up with original cupcake recipes and icing combination. Teachers voted for their favorites and 800 winning cupcake combinations will be featured tonight. The two winning flavors include a Pumpkin Spice cupcake with a Cinnamon Cream Cheese icing and a Vanilla cupcake with a Hazelnut Buttercream icing.  

The next senior citizen dinner is scheduled for Dec. 19 at 5:30 p.m., followed by a Parkland High School Orchestra/11th & 12th Grade Chorus/Chorale Winter Concert at 7 p.m. in the auditorium.
