What's new at the CAM this weekend?

We're glad you asked! We have two items to report:

First up:
There is a new wedding cake on display in our bakery case, and it was made by our very own
Student Assistant, Emmalee Santioni.

According to Emmalee, "this Wildflower Wedding Cake was made for a bride who is a 'lil bit country.' It is decorated with leather bands, lace, and the classic cowboy necktie - the bolo tie. The Keith Anderson song 'Pickin Wildflowers' was the inspiration for the cake design."

All decorative elements on this cake are crafted with edible material.

And the next bit of news:
It's ICC (Intra-collegiate Culinary Competition) time! On Saturday, February 4, the Denver, Miami, and Charlotte campus teams will come to Providence to compete against one another for the coveted ICC trophy. Museum Student Assistant, Courtney Staiano, is a competitor on the ICC Pastry team. Join us in wishing all teams the best of luck. But because we're a bit partial here, let's focus most of that luck on the Providence team. After all, we have been looking at a mere photo of the trophy here in the museum since 2009.
