Megan Lashley, Rachael Vitale, Emma Hohenstein and Peyton Pfeiffer try to encourage a student to pick their dessert over somebody else’s at the Renaissance Dessert Bar on Thursday.

Renaissance members were ecstatic when students were coming through the Dessert Bar on Nov. 30. Students earned the right to attend the beach-themed party for ‘Keeping Their Grades A-Float’ and getting a 3.0+ GPA for Grading Period 2.

Lines were long during each lunch shift, but the red carpet affair mixed with a dance party turned to a competition between four Renaissance members at the end of the tables filled with cupcakes and cheesecake slices during the last lunch session.

During the third lunch shift, four girls at the end of the dessert bar were working hard to make sure their treats were taken instead of somebody else’s.

Emma Hohenstein was one of the girls hawking her cupcakes to the students coming through the line.

“They should get their dessert from me because they are from me and I am better than them.”

Megan Lashley countered that argument using her position at the table.

“I am at the end of the line and everyone knows the best is always the last,” she said. “The first is the worst.”

Rachael Vitale tried using the holiday spirit to make sure that students took her red- or green-frosted cupcakes.

“Mine are all put together and shaped like a Christmas tree,” Vitale said. “‘Tis the season.”

Since school was still in session, some students avoided the blue-frosted cupcakes because of the fear that they would stain their mouth that color, and Lashley said she had given away more pink-frosted cupcakes than any other color.

Each girl was trying to find an advantage to make students take their treats, and Peyton Pfeiffer tried using her personality as the tipping point.

“I think I’m selling them the best because I’m using my good looks and charm.”

And as any 3.0+ student would do, Lashley used what she has learned in the classroom to respond to that claim.

“I’ve taken Economics, and honestly, looks don’t sell.”

“They’ve worked for me,” Pfeiffer said. “So yeah.”
