The Pierpont Community and Technical College invited the public to its campus Monday to view and taste a final class project.

Pierpont Culinary Academy students competed in a "Cake Competition" for Pierpont Pride and some extra credit.

The students have worked on a three-tiered cake for several weeks.

The requirements included two flavors, two fillings, and different techniques for icing.

"I'm very pleased. I think it was definitely a good learning experience. They haven't had experience of a cake of this size. We made smaller cakes in class but never anything like this. For their very first time, I think they were very creative in their design," said Allison McCue, of the Pierpont Culinary Academy.

A black and yellow tier cake won the People's Choice award.

A purple cake was voted Best Tasting.
