YW Iron Chef

So 3 weeks ago we had the best Combined YM/YW activity. We did an Iron Chef competition that we split the kids into teams according to their classes and gave them cakes and frosting etc... and then we gave them someone from the scriptures that they had to do a cake representing. We had lots of fun and it was great to see how creative the kids were with what they were given. Everyone had a lot of fun. Definitely something to repeat in a couple of years!

The Winning team with their creation of Lehi's dream of the iron rod! It was spectacular!

Erica and Sierra working on the "Moses" cake.

The priest hard at work, they were super creative.

Gathering ingredients

Breanna and the "Joshua" cake, they used the theme for this year and it was great!

Brook, piping frosting onto the Golden Plates or the "Nephi" cake

Get creative!

Sister Johnson handing out supplies!

Sarah working hard on her cake.

Frosting can fix just about any mistake, except when you are missing a whole cake. Everything turned out alright though!
Joshua 1:9 BE thou Strong and of a good courage

Lehi's dream, iron rod, tree of life, mists (white swirls) of darkness, the river, the great and spacious building with the mocking people! It was really cool!

Moroni's "Title of Liberty"

The Golden plates

The hill Cumorah, thought this was funny because Mormon was their person and Moroni hid the plates at the hill.

Jonah's Whale, Jonah is in the mouth of the whale if you look closely!

This was my biggest disappointment, the was the Ammon. A depiction of one of the cut off arms. I thought the girls could have done so many things, but oh well.

The Samuel the Lamanite cake, he is on top preaching with arrows aimed at him but not hitting him and the army on their way up the stairs to get him.

This is the Moroni cake, the hill Cumorah and the burial chamber. They had plates and the sword and the liahona in the chamber that opened up.

Another spectacular cake, Moses parting the Red Sea and leading the people through, he is at the front with the staff. The fire that was the Lord that protected them from Pharaoh and his chariots from reaching them before they were safe.

Alma the Younger, the angel "the white thing, and the sons of Mosiah all struck down.

The story of Esther in a loose depiction, the gallows that Haman meant for Mortichi to be hanged in, where he was ultimately hanged!

This was a great activity, our Leader, my friend Laurel is so awesome! I am so grateful to serve with her and get to partake of her spirit she is wonderful!
