Culinary Students Build Cake Replica of College’s Oldest Building

SUNY Cobleskill culinary students have been stacking layer after layer of sheet cake and frosting to build a sweet replica of Frisbie Hall circa 1913, the College’s oldest building, for the Inauguration of Dr. Marion A. Terenzio on Friday, April 8.

Seven culinary students, under the direction of Professor Jo Anne Cloughly, have been working day in and day out to build, smooth, and decorate the cake based on historic photos of the building. The construction has so far involved more than 60 pounds of pound cake and 60 pounds of buttercream frosting.

The cake commemorates the Inauguration of Dr. Terenzio, the College’s twelfth president, as well as SUNY Cobleskill’s ongoing Centennial Celebration.



And so it begins… construction of the Frisbee Hall for inauguration… 20 cake sheets, 50 pounds of frosting so far! #sunycobleskill
