MPS students participate in ice cream making competition
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Public School students were testing their dessert-making skills Thursday with ice cream.
More than 20 students took part in an ice cream making contest.
The students are part of MPS' "pro-start" program. It's a two-year program that aims at getting kids job ready so they can get an entry-level cooking job at any restaurant in Milwaukee by the time they graduate.
"We try to expose them to different jobs in the field so that the idea is maybe one of them will really click with them and motivate them to head down that path," says ice cream judge Jennifer Bartolotta
The students were judged on the taste, texture, appearance, and creativity of their ice cream. Students created flavors like strawberry balsamic, peaches and cream, and cinnamon toast crunch.
