Crescent’s Great Coronation Bake Off
Year 6 pupils at the Crescent School took part in a special DT Challenge this week when they channelled their inner Mary Berry and went all out to win the school’s Coronation Bake Off.
Their task was to design, bake and decorate a Victoria Sponge cake to mark His Majesties King Charles III’s coronation.
Pupils worked in teams and began by carefully designing their cakes. Mrs Johnson then provided all the ingredients, and, on Thursday, Year 6 got busy baking. Friday morning was all about the decoration and the youngsters spent period 2 excitedly creating their stunning designs, we had crowns and bunting and all sorts of creations!
Judging all the cakes were Mr Adkins, Mrs Dowling and Mrs Stephenson, who happily took on the hard work of tasting them all. In addition to the texture and taste of the sponge they considered, the creativity of the decoration and how the fillings complimented the cake.
After much deliberation the results were: in first place Ellie, Grace M and Zahra, in second place Charlie, Harry and Sam and in joint third place Chloe, Mya and Bella and Ava, Alex and Grace C. A really big well done to everyone though, as it was a very close decision.
Mrs Johnson, said, “Our bakers were just incredible, the effort and creativity put into making their cakes has been amazing. Well done everyone.”
