Great Highfields Bake Off!

Highfields' budding Mary Berrys and Paul Hollywoods are getting creative in the kitchen as part of a Christmas bake-off competition.

After the country was once again taken into the floury grip of Great British Bake Off fever, Highfields has given Year 9 students the challenge of whisking up their own cake creations based on the theme of Christmas.

Students from four local schools will be joining in the culinary contest 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 finished cake creations in the Lecture Theatre.

After-school cake decorating classes have been taking place every Wednesday over the past month in the run-up to the competition, led by Miss Legister and Miss Williams.

Food Technology teacher, Miss Williams, said: “Great British Bake off really inspired the country to get baking and it has been great seeing how creative our students can be in the kitchen. There is a lot of culinary talent in the school and we're really looking forward to the event."
