Atchison County 4-H held a cake decorating class on Tuesday, May 24th for youth in the cake decorating project. Michelle Oswald from Memories in the Baking taught youth how to frost a cake, smooth it out, and how to use different decorating techniques. The youth, and even the adults, had quite a time learning different techniques to use for their local Achievement Day during the Atchison County Fair as well as the State Fair if their item was sent on. Cake Decorating is just one of the many projects that 4-H has to offer at the University of Missouri Extension in Atchison County. If you are interested in lending your skills to teach youth in different areas please contact, Youth Program Associate, Sam O’Riley at 660-744-6231 or e-mail at
