Lower 4 Bake-off

Winner 250wAs part of Languages Week, and to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support, the Lower 4s were set a challenge to make a cake from, or decorated like, any country.  We brought our cakes into the kitchen in the morning and they were judged at break time. They were then sliced up and we could buy a piece for 50p. We raised over £150 towards Macmillan Cancer Support. The winner of the taste section was Lauren with her Black Forest gateau, the creativity prizes were won by Felicity with a Rainforest cake and Kenzie with a Panda cake.  The winners of overall appearance were Greta with an Antarctica theme and Ella with her New Zealand kiwi cake. I think it was a great thing to do to help support this charity and I am glad that St George’s has helped another charity.

On Friday 29 September, there was an international themed cake-decorating competition to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. Most of the Lower 4s baked and decorated a cake with theme of a country. As last week was 'International Languages week' and 'Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee week', it seemed fit to raise some money and have some fun.

At least 80% of the Lower 4's baked and there were a huge variety of creative cakes baked. Some of the cakes were; a Jungle, Sushi, Kiwi, Tartan, Parthenon, Pandas, Ice Cream, World Map, Pasta and lots more from every corner of the world. There were also cakes based on countries for example: France, Italy, Netherlands, China, New Zealand, Rome, Hawaii, Scotland and many more. All of the cakes were very creatively presented and tasted delicious!

When the cakes were judged, there were three sections: 'taste', 'presentation' and 'creativity'. At the end, we had raised over £150 for 'Macmillan Cancer Support'.
