Pictured above: Castle Pines third grade girl scout brownie troop #2687 held a “He & Me Cake-Off” on Saturday, September 20 at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. The event provided an opportunity for fathers and daughters to spend an afternoon of fun together. In addition, they were able to participate in serving our local community.
Each participating father/daughter team decided upon a cake theme, submitted their idea to troop leadership, and then brought an undecorated cake that they baked together, as well as all of their decorating supplies to the event. They were not allowed to seek advice or assistance from any females. The teams were given an hour-and-a-half to decorate their cakes.
The cakes were then scored by a team of five judges. Awards were given for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place as well as People’s Choice, Scout’s Choice and a variety of other categories. At the culmination of the event, the cakes were donated to a local senior care facility and a women’s crisis center in Castle Rock.
