SOUTH LYON, MICH (WXYZ) — In a year of uncertainty, South Lyon middle school teachers Sara Gage and Rebecca Mann cooked up an idea that has succeeded beyond all expectations.
They started up The Baking Club - a highly-successful extracurricular activity for Centennial and Millennium middle school students. About 250 students from both middle schools (and sometimes other teachers!) participate.

On June 9, the group will be attempting to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the largest virtual cooking class. The recipe they'll be using is posted below. Enjoy.
