A group of Ridgefield students turned the (entirely fact-based, I’m sure) history of the cupcake into an educational music video.
The video, posted to YouTube, chronicles the historic importance of the cupcake, from adorning the pyramids to crossing the Delaware River with General Washington to a future that will include uranium-laced synthetic milk.
The song was composed by a team of 15 Ridgefield 5th graders working together at the Young Writer’s Conference. Team leader Noah Manheimer then took the song to the teens at the Enchanted Garden workshop in Ridgefield for production.
Production also included filming on scene at The Cake Box.
