Year 7 channel inner Mary Berry at special Bake Off competition
19th May 2017

Eager bakers at Rydal Penrhos channelled their inner Mary Berry for a special competition.

The Year 7 group held their own Bake Off on Friday, May 19, where they designed and made a selection of cakes in the hope of achieving first prize.

After a frantic morning in the Food and Nutrition department, a host of superb creations were put before Headmaster Simon Smith, who was given the responsibility of judging the event.

The Head ran the rule over the cakes and was highly complementary of the group’s work, before crowning John Williams as the winner for his Eton Mess inspired cakes.

Sophie Madden was awarded second prize for her fantastic chocolate-themed cakes, while Lili Northcott was given third for her efforts, narrowly beating out Niall Richardson, who came close to claiming the spot, said Mr Smith.

All three pupils received a cooking book as a prize to mark their achievement, and the competition was the latest in a long line of themed competitions put on by Department Head Lynne Williams.

Also taking part were visiting pupils from San Carlo in Portugal, who also tried their hand at cake making as part of their integration week at Rydal Penrhos.
