Bake Off: The Results

Thank you to everyone in years 3,4,5 and 6 who baked a cake for this year’s bake off. And thank you to Aisha (year 6), Susannah (year 4), Mr Kelly and Miss Solanki for taking the time to judge all the cakes! I know that it was a hard task deciding on the winner from each class. Here are some of the creations:

The finalists were: Anya (Mrs Engleman’s class), Jacob (Mr Snowden’s class), Anya (Miss Ekers/Teale’s class), Tamaris (Mrs Walton’s class), Daisy  (Mrs Wilson’s class) and Poppy (Miss Rees/Mr Burnell’s class).

A cake stall was held after the year 3/4 and 5/6 bake offs raising an amazing £180 for school.

Each class winner created an amazing Christmassy themed cake for the final of the inaugral Fishergate Bake Off.  We think that the winning “illusion cake” in the form of a Christmas Pud is a real showstopper!  Well done to a very worthy winner.
