Severn Bridges Multi-Academy Trust held its very first Bake Off today in a three-school wide cookery competition.
Severn Bridges MAT launched the baking contest to all children across the three schools earlier this month. The first round of the contest invited the budding bakers to create celebration cupcakes at home, and bring them into school to be judged. The colourful creations were then sold off in a cake sale to raise money for the Trust’s chosen charity, Empathy for Special Children.
Judges had the near impossible task of selecting a winner from each school to compete in the Bake Off final, which was held today at Mount Pleasant Primary School. The finalists, Tillie, (Year 6) from Greenfields Primary School, Bonnie (Year 5) from Mount Pleasant Primary School and Finnley (Year 6) from Radbrook Primary School, were tasked with baking a Victoria Sponge Cake, independently and from scratch, under the watchful eye of the competition judges.
Congratulations to Mount Pleasant’s Bonnie who scooped the top prize and won a Nadiya's Bake Me a Story cookery book and a £15.00 voucher to spend at Crystals Cupcakes in Shrewsbury.
CEO Andrew Morris welcomed the MAT-wide event: “We’ve all faced a challenging time, with many of the inter-school events and activities curtailed due to Covid restrictions, so it was wonderful to see the children together, competing against each other, representing their three schools and having fun.”
