Miss Jane Kulesza’s Sugarcake Workshop has become a Brunswick County 4-H tradition!  4-H members made delicious sugarcakes and learned about the history of the Moravians in North Carolina.  Participants also made a Christmas ornament when the dough was rising with help from 4-H alum, Perry Grosch.

Abby and Tyson cut chunks of butter to top their cakes.
