Diboll FCCLA students pose with their cake mix boxes.

Diboll students are ‘Cake Angels’


Diboll FCCLA has been working with students on each campus to see who could collect the most boxed cake mixes. The class from each grade that collected the most boxes won a cupcake party, with the cupcakes made by the Diboll Culinary Classes — a portion of the FCCLA.

Collectively all campuses gathered more than 1,100 boxed cake mixes to donate to the Cake Angels Foundation. This organization makes custom birthday cakes for children who are in situations that might not permit them to have a birthday cake.

This program directly benefits students in Angelina County, and the Diboll FCCLA students wanted to make sure they did their part, said sponsor Jennifer Garcia.

The culinary classes met a Cake Angels representative Tuesday at Bryan’s Smokehouse to donate the massive amount of cake mixes. After the exchange, the culinary students toured the kitchen at Bryan’s and enjoyed lunch. The episode of “Restaurant Impossible” will air on Sunday, and the students had the opportunity to see firsthand the renovations the restaurant experienced.
