Letter To The Judges

  1. 1. 1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115April 18th, 2012Judges, Senior projectCreekview High School1550 Owens Store RoadCanton, GA 30115Dear Judges:My name is Britney Boltz. I am eighteen years old and I plan on training horses all my life. Ioriginally wanted to become a veterinarian, but recently I have learned that even though I loveanimals and would be helping save their lives I couldn’t perform surgery on them. I used to fightin full knock out Olympic Tae Kwon Do, I was sponsored by Nike, and was going on to theOlympic trials to fight in the 2012 Olympics’ until I got severely injured three years ago. Aftermy injures I took a deeper interest into horses, although I have had them my whole life, and Ihave realized that I enjoy the one on one connection with a horse and rider. My mom used tobake all my birthday cakes until I was sixteen, and I always went to her classes where shelearned new techniques, and I enjoyed laughing while she struggled to learn how. Which lead meto choose how to design a wedding cake.My product is a four layered wedding cake made of eight cakes, butter crème frosting, a fondantcovering, and a cascade of flowers down the front of the cake. I was able to construct this cakewith the help of my Wilton class at Michael’s arts and crafts, my Wilton supplies, and my projectfacilitator. I had trouble with making the flowers for this cake because the fondant would notstick, it would not form properly, or it would break. Then I had trouble learning how to place thecakes to make the proper layered appearance.My choice of project showed me what it takes to become a pastry chef. I learned that cakedecorating takes a lot of patience and time. I lack in patience therefor, I would end up workingon the cake for twenty minutes then find myself watching television on the couch. I found outthat I would not pursue to become a pastry chef but I would enjoy making cakes for friend’sbirthdays.In the end I found the project to be very stressful, and an unnecessary assignment to have whiledealing with graduating. It’s just and extra assignment that could possibly cause me to fail mysenior year and I did not need that extra stress. Therefore, I would vote to get rid of seniorproject for good.At this time I thank you for taking your time.Sincerely,Britney Boltz
