Throughout the afternoons of the 23rd and the 24th of March two teams went head to head in a bake off in support of Comic Relief. The two teams were the year 9/10 team and the year 11 team, both putting in a valiant effort to support the cause and create the best tasting and looking cakes that they could muster, in hopes of winning an extra ten pounds to their sponsor money.
With all students armed with sponsor forms, to get themselves sponsored for Comic Relief in hopes to raise as much as they possibly can, each one coming back with an impressive effort, and a smile on their faces ready to raise some more.
On Thursday afternoon the bake off commenced, with a brief intro to comic relief we set both teams off planning their designs, making shopping lists, going and buying what they needed and baking plain cupcakes for them to decorate the next day. Both teams went for two different designs of cup-cakes. The year 9/10 team made “emoji” cupcakes, and the year 11 team making a “Larry the unicorn” cake out of different cupcakes put together and iced all over.
After two afternoons of designing and creating the cupcakes, the judgement day had arrived with Cheryl and Linda arriving to judge the cup-cakes on their looks, taste and creativity. Both teams made great cup-cakes, and both made an amazing effort with presenting their cakes, but in the end there could only be one winner of the ten pound sponsor money. With both teams on the edge of their seats, eager to find out who had won. The winning team ended up being the year 11s, with their “Larry the unicorn” cup-cakes.
All students enjoyed the competition as well as staff, and we all look forward to the next event like this.
