House Bake Off Goes Green With Environmental Theme
House Bake Off is always a popular competition and what a tantalising display of creative cakes the entries made when they were all lined up in the Food and Nutrition Room.
The ‘Environment’ theme had produced an incredible array of ‘green’ themed bakes with brilliant bugs, fabulous flowers, plastic planets, edible earths and of course reduce, reuse and recycle messages in every shape and form.
The excitement was palatable as pupils and staff crowded in for the lunchtime viewing with everyone marking their favourites with a sticker. This year’s judges took their time considering the presentation, taste and relevance to the theme. Miss Verleure, Miss Law, Mr Turns, Ms Lewis and Ms Scott had all volunteered for the arduous job of judging all the entries.
House Activities Co-ordinator, Katharine Darwood-Bredin commented, “Our House bakers are just incredible, the effort and creativity put into making these cakes was amazing. House Bake Off is always a super competition. Well done to everyone who took part.”
