At the Special Council Presentation Ceremony, Councilwoman Jenifer Bailey recognized Homestead students Aaron and Michael Berry for winning Disney’s Magic Bake off with certificates of recognition. This televised competition consists of three teams of young bakers, between ages 6 to 14, who compete against the clock to design a Disney inspired cake in the hopes of being named “Disney Baking Champion”. Aaron and Michael participated in Episode 1 of Season 1; their challenge was to make a Disney Descendants themed wedding cake.
“One of the reasons we wanted to honor these two students, not only for this achievement but for their program Boys That Bake” Councilwoman Bailey commented, “they not only teach other boys how to bake but also talk about bullying.”
The Berry siblings created Boys that Bake, to promote brotherhood amongst other boys who not only enjoy baking but have been bullied in the past for it. It’s an initiative that started as a community service hours project and evolved into zoom classes, events, and this summer they will be teaching in local summer camps.
