AUBURN, Mass. -The smell of frosting, candy and baked goodies filled the air at Cub Scout Pack 53's Annual Father / Son Cake Bake on Friday at the Faith Baptist Church.
"It is a fun, friendly competition where only the boys and their fathers or other adult male is allowed to do all the baking, decorating and even the cleaning up afterwards," Christine Ganong said.
According to Pack 53 Cub Master Scott Taylor, the entire creation must be edible including the decorations and no female assistance is permitted.
"No moms were allowed to help, especially during the clean-up," Taylor said.
Cub Scout Matthew Wolner, 9 and his father designed the 'Best Camping' cake using Swedish fish, Sour Patch candy, Fruit Roll-Ups and lots of blue cake glaze to create a small "fishing pond" in the cake center.
"It was all his idea," Wolner's father, Branden said.
Awards were presented to the winners of six different categories including:
- Best Scouting - Ethan Keeler
- Best Sports - Cameron Ganong
- Best Camping - Matthew Wolner
- Best SUPERSIZED - Nathan Taylor
- Best Anything Goes - Jacob Baker
- Best Overall - Kieran Keaney
