Students in the Pastry Food Show and Buffet Presentations Concepts course – a capstone class in the baking and pastry arts major – presented a delectable fall-themed Grand Pastry Buffet on Nov. 20, just in time for the Thanksgiving feast. Seven students displayed their skill through chocolate and sugar centerpieces, taste-tempting cakes and bite-sized confections during an event that honored the college’s 1914 Society, who were guests of Institutional Advancement at the event, held in the Community Arts Center’s Capitol Lounge.
