Talented Students Say ‘Bon Voyage’ to Newlywed Travelers


Eight Pennsylvania College of Technology students enrolled in an advanced-level cake decorating course showed off their intricate artistry Thursday, displaying with deserved pride their “Destination Wedding” cakes. Following judging and an exhibition in the Thompson Professional Development Center, the cakes were moved to the college’s Madigan Library. Participating students are Samantha-Jo M. Bradley, of Middlebury Center; Ashley E. Gentzyel, of Lock Haven; Amy E. Lynn, of Bloomsburg; Katelyn E. Paulhamus, of Montoursville; Theodore J. Persing, of South Williamsport; Taylor Potter, of Towanda; Lynnette F. Stegmaier, of Muncy Valley; and Kristina M. Williams, of South Williamsport. All are baking and pastry arts majors, except for Gentzyel (technology management) and Stegmaier (professional baking).
