Friday 18 March was a very exciting day as we held the final of the Junior Bake off competition.
Eleven teams from six different primary schools had battled through the semi-finals and six teams took part in the final. Each finalist was given an embroidered apron before they began - a ‘well done’ for getting this far!
The teams were baking an Easter cake and could bring along any items that they felt would enhance the look of their cake and add to the theme.
After much prepping, measuring, rolling out and baking the cakes were ready to be decorated and they did not disappoint! All manner of items were used to decorate the cakes such as chicks, bunnies, eggs and marshmallows.
The guest judge was award-winning chef Victor Yu from Yu and You restaurant in Alderley Edge. Mr Yu spent time chatting to the bakers, admiring the cake designs and then came the all important taste test.
After a nail biting wait the winners were announced as Hammad Khan, Aisha Nassar and Shifa Kapadia from Roe Lee Park primary school. They were delighted to take the trophy back to their primary school.
Well done everyone – we can’t wait for the 2016/17 competition!
