Girl Scout’s delicious dream doubled

By From page A10 | April 25, 2012

Nicole Shedd, a Lake Forest Elementary fourth grader, thought it would be cool for her Girl Scout troop to have their own unique project. After all, her younger brother had just finished building a race car for his Cub Scout den’s Pinewood Derby.

Nicole recruited the nine other girls in her El Dorado Hills’ Girl Scout Troop 10 to bake 100 cupcakes to celebrate the organization’s 100th birthday.

The troop has gotten used to that magic number. Under the guidance of leaders Ann Van De Water and Kristin Culcasi, the Girls Scouts have already collected 100 pairs of pajamas and 100 cans of cat food for the needy this year.

So Troop 10 scouts took their 100 cupcake plan one step further; they baked 200 cupcakes for the annual Girl Scout Father/Daughter dance held at Lakehills Church last Friday night, where dads and their girls feasted on the treats while dancing to music from just about every decade of the past century. Joining Nicole, the other Troop 10 bakers are: Carmela Culcasi, Makenna Downing, Melissa Gomes, Andi Liaty, Annalise Nicholson, Cassie Soldavini, Sophia Sonsini, Charlotte Van De Water and Savannah Van De Water.
