Christmas cake creations to take centre stage in contest


Sweet-toothed students have been dusting up on their cake-making skills as part of an annual Christmas Bake-Off competition.

Highfields has given Year 9 students the chance of whisking up their own cake creations based on the theme of Christmas.

Weekly after-school cake-making and cake decorating classes have now kicked off ahead of the competition, which will also feature students from four other city schools.

The semi-final of the contest is due to be held on December 12th, with the final taking place on December 19th.

The cake creations will be judged with the help of a professional baker from The Nuthouse Bakery, in Brierley Hill, with a host of prizes up for grabs.

Food Technology teacher, Miss E Williams, said: “Students enjoy learning new skills and being creative.

“Each week they learn a new cake decorating technique and then they can show off what they have learnt by designing their own Christmas Cake for the Bake Off Competition.

“They get to make new friends and will be working alongside students of the same age from different schools.

“There is a lot of culinary talent in the school and we're really looking forward to another fantastic event.”
