Baking Challenge

Star Baker

How did this baker brighten our summer?

Props, set pieces, tchotchkes! Accompanying each entry from Ainsley and Cammy was a visual story adorned with tokens. Whether a plush Bucky Badger dressed up like Harry Potter for their “Bucky Potter Treacle Tart” in Week 3, a set of Star Wars Funko Pops to characterize (literally) their “Leia Buns" in Week 7, or a teensy Aaron Rogers zooming around in a mini-convertible atop a “Lemme Go Lambeau” American pie in Week 5, their bakes boasted thoughtful context and scene-setting throughout.

Our favorite Wisconsin Twist (pictured)!

As we got to know Ainsley and Cammy over ten weeks we designated them “Super Badgers,” so we think it’s fitting that our favorite Wisconsin Twist was their flying “W” — a UW trademark — nestled in their “W for Wisconsin” Hidden Design Cake in Week 1.

A choice quote or piece of Star Baker wisdom:

Cammy studied in Vienna and taught us a thing or two about Viennese coffee culture making an apple Nussestrudel (also Nusse Strudel) for Puddings Week!

How did you do?
