STARKVILLE, Miss. — A cake designed and created by MSU Dining staff has won an international Aramark competition.
The carnival-themed cake, designed by State Fountain Bakery Lead Decorator Angel Jennings, recently won Aramark’s Employee Appreciation Day Cake Competition, beating Aramark teams from around the world.
“This is no small feat as Aramark Employee Appreciation Day includes national, as well as global, accounts within all lines of business,” said MSU Dining Marketing Coordinator Keri Lum. “We at MSU Dining are very proud of our team’s efforts in creating this award-winning cake and for all that it does for our students and campus community on a daily basis.
