There was a Christmas cupcake carousal at the Mattapoisett Free Public Library on Wednesday, December 5. Old Rochester Regional senior Mattie Boyle was invited by the youth group, S.K.W.A.R. (Strange Kids Who Actually Read), to teach local children how to decorate cupcakes for the holidays. Boyle, who was recently accepted to the Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts in Charlotte, N.C., brought with her vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet cupcakes. She made the frostings from scratch, allowing the younger kids to help sift together ingredients. She then led a step-by-step lesson on how to use fondant and the different shaped tips for the piping bag. Check out our gallery of photos from the event. Photos by Eric Tripoli.
