Bake Off contest features in international magazine

Highfields’ Bake Off competition, which saw students from city schools get creative in the kitchen to whisk up Christmas cakes, has been featured in an international magazine.

The annual competition, hosted by Highfields, challenges Year 9 students from five schools to make their own sweet creations based on the theme of Christmas.

The 2016 contest was judged by Laura Nolan, from the Nuthouse Bakery in Brierley Hill, who selected Highfields pupil Chloe Peters to win first place. Fellow Highfields pupil, Florence Waite, came in third place while a student from Aldersley High took second.

The efforts of all of the competitors have now featured in Cake Masters Magazine, which is distributed across the UK in major supermarkets and High Street retailers. It is also delivered to 44 other countries, including the USA and Australia.

Food Technology teacher, Miss Williams, said: “The cakes served up in our Bake Off competition were a fantastic standard and it is wonderful to have the efforts of all of the students honoured in Cake Masters Magazine, which is seen around the world.”
