Our students at Helms College recently had the opportunity to participate in a Girl Scout Cookie Competition where they had to take one of the Girl Scout cookies we all know and love and make a delectable dessert from it. Student Lynae Radke’s Samoa Bundt Cake featured a salted caramel sauce and toasted coconut for a bit of crunch over ice cream. Finished off with an artful drizzle of chocolate, Lynae’s miniature Bundt cake is as pretty as it is delicious. This competition gave our students the opportunity to test their skills and support the Girl Scouts of America.
