Santa’s Bakeshop Puts the Icing on Top of Christmas at Saint Cols with Festive and Tasty Treats
Christmas at Saint Cols was a huge success this year! New in 2019 for Santa’s Bakeshop, a panel of judges consisting of St. Columbkille Church leaders and Saint Columbkille Partnership School administration combined votes in the festive confection competition. This year marked the most submissions thus far in the baking competition, which made for a Bakeshop with a wide variety of beautiful and delicious treats. Santa did a walk-through of the goodies and gave his seal of approval.
Additionally, an extra special treat was provided just for students with allergies. Saint Cols mom Kim Herzig spearheaded making and giving each of these children an extra special treat of allergy-safe fudge, complete with its own keepsake cookie cutter.
While the cookie room was extremely popular and the school sold hundreds of bags full of cookies and treats, the remainder was delivered to our local first responders, as an annual tradition. Police officers at Brighton Center’s Station 14 as well as firefighters at Union Square Ladder 14, Engine 41 in Allston were delighted to have wonderful homemade sweets as a thank you for all that they do for the community.
Also, grade 1 students won a pizza party for 100 percent participation in bringing in treats for Santa’s Bakeshop. And without further ado, the most festive confection winners:
First Place: Lisa Parcell with her St. Columbkille Gingerbread Church and accompanying STCPS & Fr. Fitz cookies
Second Place: Moema Nicolau with her Snow Globe Cupcakes
Third Place: Mark Mullins (a K1 grandfather from Seattle) with his St. Columbkille cross and dove cookies.
Staff Champion: Jen Lynch with her Brownies with Crushed Peppermint
