Christmas Cake Competition 2012!

 Year 10 Catering Students have once again been baking and decorating to take part in the annual Christmas cake competition.

The students chose the size of the cake they wanted to make using Mrs O'Brien's special recipe. After baking, the cakes were covered in marzipan and icing and then the students were encouraged to use their imagination and skills to produce their own individual designs.

Mrs O'Brien, Subject Leader for Catering, said "The students have worked so well and with great enthusiasm, diligence and focus to produce their cakes and have all shown a high level of creativity in designing and creating the decorations".

The finished cakes were then judged by Ben Piette, owner and Head Chef of The London House Restaurant and Mr Smith, Headteacher, with special attention being paid to the cakes where the students had made their own decorations.

The winners were:

1st place - Sophie Gooch

2nd place - Gavin Thomas

3rd place - Josie Schifano

Highly commended - Erin Cullen
