Bake Off Finalists present their finished cakes to our panel of judges
On Friday 30 May, our Home Economics department was a frenzy of activity as S2 pupils competed in our Great Scottish Bake Off final. From 9am until noon, pupils had to make, bake, and decorate a Scottish Themed Cake.
Our Judges, consisting of local Master Bakers Harry Gow and son David Gow, Javier Dominguez (Head Chef at Rocpool), Garry Millard (former pupil and Albert Roux Apprentice) and some of our own staff watched proceedings closely, judging pupils on design, preparation, technique, safety & hygiene and the all important final presentation.
The quality of the cakes was outstanding especially with such pressure on the pupils in the presence of such renowned judges. The overall winner was Morvern Carmichael whose Kilt and Bagpipe themed cake impressed the judges, right down to the music themed base too. The judges awarded five prizes overall and these will all be given out at assemblies later.
Well done everyone for participating and putting in such a great effort. Thank you also to our judges for giving up so much of their valuable time.
