This evening we took part in the Leading Edge Inter-school Bake Off along with Mount Carmel, Norden and Hollins. We’re very pleased to announce that we won!

The theme was the World Cup, and we had to choose a country and then produce an afternoon tea with 2 sweet and 2 savoury dishes of our choice. We chose Australia, and Miss Bedwell provided us with a range of props for the table setting and some recipe ideas.

Ryan Richardson, Morgan Herne, Charlotte Allonby and Luke Tomlinson were our competing students, and they did us proud. Ryan cooked a savoury damper, Morgan made mini pavlovas, Charlotte baked lamingtons and Luke made some mini Aussie burgers. The students were marked on teamwork, taste, presentation, skills and sticking to the brief.

I’d like to thank Miss Bedwell, Mr Mercer, Ms Widdowson and Sandra in the kitchen for all of their help. It was a team effort all around!
