Winners of the virtual bake off to mark this year’s European Day of Languages enjoyed the sweet taste of success when they were presented with their well-deserved awards in school yesterday.
The competition, arranged by the Languages Department, inspired students from all year groups to put their baking skills to the test at home, then submit photos of their creations for judges to score.
With an exceptionally high standard of entries to choose from, the task of judging was quite a challenge, but Mr Butler and Mrs Lowden eventually singled out their top three bakes of the contest.
Isobel Onions, from Year 7, was announced as the winner for her magnificent cake covered with a detailed map of Europe, crafted entirely from icing and decorated with handmade flags.
About the winning entry, the judges commented: “This cake was an extraordinary effort of icing cartography and flag-based greetings from around Europe – a brilliant construction by Isobel.”
Mia Campbell Spence (Year 8) took second place and was praised for her “brilliant food colouring skills” and Evie Power (Year 7) came third with her colourful cake depicting the European Union flag.
Well done to this year’s worthy winners!
