Although this is the first time for these five Nyack High School students to create a cake of this kind, it was good enough to win a school-wide vote.

Team Krab made a Krusty Krab themed cake and it won out over nine other cakes in the high school’s 7th Annual Cake Off Competition in Wendy Cummings' Foods & Nutrition.

On Team Krab are:

  • Adriana Disimone
  • Brennen Ramos
  • Nicolette Paletta
  • Daniel Minunni
  • Alanna Falchiccio

Nyack HS voted from Nov. 19-21. Patch also ran a fun poll at the same time, in which the Snoopy cake won, Snoop Dawg.

The winner was announced Monday, Nov. 26 during morning announcements.

“It started two weeks ago,” said Ramos. “Everything was made from scratch.”

“Everything had to be edible,” said Minunni, adding that the building was made out of two stacked cakes. “We used fondant for Spongebob and Plankton. We had four days to put it together. Making the sign was hard because we used a pretzel rod that wouldn’t stand up with the fondant.”

Disimone came up with the idea to do a Spongebob themed cake and the team of five worked together to get to the final design.

“Our team really came together,” said Paletta.

“The girls did the special effects, the details,” said Disimone. “The guys did the structure and decorated it with fondant.”

“Through previous projects we had difficulties getting together,” said Ramos. “With this one, we really collaborated to make this masterpiece.”

Out of all the other cakes in the competition, they said that the one they were worried about was the popcorn one, Don’t Stop, Pop That.

Cummings said that up next is the gingerbread house competition and never has the winner for the cake-off gone on to win the gingerbread contest as well.

“There’s going to be a gingerbread competition and we’re going for it,” said Paletta.

“We’re going to get the double crown for the first time,” said Ramos.

Minunni added “We’re here to make food history at Nyack HS.”
