Blue & Gold- February's Pack Meeting
Most Cub Scouts celebrate Scouting Anniversary February 8 1910 with a "birthday party" called the blue and gold sometime in the month . Pack 214 is no different, so on Tuesday February 11th at our Pack meeting we will celebrate scouting with a presentation from our Friends of Scouting Chair and a cake contest. Yes we will let them eat cake!
Since the cakes will be shared with everyone PLEASE keep in mind that we do have several boys with tree nut allergies in our pack and ask that none of the cakes or cake ingredients contain them.
1) Theme =Sports
2) 8" or 9" square or round cakes * there is NO prize category for the biggest cake
2) Edible! That means everything except the tray it sits on. Whatever you build or use to decorate must be edible. Examples: Toothpicks NOT edible, pretzel sticks ARE edible. Matchbox cars and Legos are NOT edible, candy and chocolate ARE edible.
5) Mixes or homemade! Go ahead, rely on the box. But, NO STORE BOUGHT CAKES! Mixing is the plan!
3) Scout Made! An adult may help with the oven, appliances, sharp knives, etc. as needed. However, please allow the Scout to do as much as possible.
6) Scouts clean up the kitchen! All scouts are old enough to load a dishwasher or wash items by hand. Just bring a stool or chair to the sink if needed. Wipe down those counters, too.
**No Fridge/Freezer items! The cakes will have to sit out at the Pack meeting for a while. Do NOT make the cake out of ice cream or other melting foods unless you are bringing a mop or a case of paper towels and plan to clean up the puddle.
**Please Bring it on a disposable tray like foil wrapped cardboard to aide in cleanup or you may be there a while and/or have to take leftovers home. Although this last is not a requirement, it is highly recommended.
**We will have tent cards for each cake when you arrive where they can also be marked if the are gluten free or contain any other common allergen.
