Highfields to host bake-off competition



Budding Mary Berrys and Paul Hollywoods are being given the chance to get creative in the kitchen with the launch of a bake-off competition.

With the country still in the floury grip of Great British Bake Off fever, Highfields is urging Year 9 students to whisk up their own cake creations based on the theme of Christmas.

Students from four local schools will be joining in the challenge on Wednesday, December 9, which will be judged by experts from Wolverhampton College and The Nuthouse Bakery in Brierley Hill.

A host of prizes are up for grabs including aprons, mugs, decorating ingredients and a professional cake-baking course for the winner and a guest at The Nuthouse Bakery.

The competition will run from 2pm-5pm when parents will be invited to get a glimpse of the cake creations in the Lecture Theatre.

After-school cake decorating classes will take place every Wednesday from November 11 run by Miss Legister and Miss Williams.

Food Technology teacher, Miss Williams said: “Great British Bake off has really inspired the country to get baking and we are looking forward to seeing how creative our students can be in the kitchen.”
