March 26, 2009 // 0 Comments

From castles to snowmen, volcanoes to teddy bears, dads, uncles, grandpas and their favorite Girl Scout arrived with their entries for the third annual Father/Daughter Cake Bake held at Our Lady of Consolation on March 14.  Twenty-seven cakes were entered in this year’s auction and sold for a total of $1,180 for the financial assistance fund for the Girl Scouts of Michigan Shore to Shore council.  The girls and their baking partners were also recognized for their culinary designs. Tia Hawkes, Lydia Kolbe and Sarah Bloem each won prizes for the cakes depicting the best Girl Scout spirit. In the cutest cake category, Olivia Baldwin, Amanda Zeboor and Baily Knittle took the honors. The judges chose the cakes created by Emilee Frost, Danielle Dettloff and Shelby Taylor as the most creative. Every color of the rainbow was represented in the cakes designed by Katherine Parker, Emma Gearhart and Skylar Fabish in the most colorful category. Most artistic honors went to Julie Fitzhugh, Micha Merren and Maddie Ripple. A salute to patriotism was represented in the designs of Marissa Dettloff, Violetta Vega and Sarah Nicklowitz and were awarded prizes in the most patriotic category. “The turnout was great for this year’s event. We raised more money this year then ever in the past-that says a lot about the caring community we live in and their support of our young people,” said Lori Dettloff, co-chair of the event. “As Girl Scouts celebrates their 97th birthday, it is great to know that this organization is stronger then ever in the Rockford community.” The Rockford Girl Scouts would like to extend a “thank-you” to Our Lady of Consolation for donating the use of their building for the event, Wiley and Company for the assistance with decorations, judges Candy Lancioni and Jeannie Gregory and to all our bakers and bidders that made this event possible.             To learn more about Girl Scouting in our area, visit
