NW24 Bake Off

1st February 2018
On Thursday we hosted our first NW24 Schools Collaborative event - the Great Bake Off - at Christ Church School.  It was fantastic to see children from 10 different schools across North West Bristol come together baking, designing cake boxes, and trying each other’s different flavoured biscuits!
Thank you so much to Amy from Anna Cake Couture in Clifton Village for supporting us all day and being our expect Bake Off Judge!
On Thursday morning we (Beth and Alex) went to a fantastic baking competition. First we went into the activity hall to wait for the other schools from NW24 to arrive. When they had all arrived, we went into the practical room to get ready to bake. We got to pick two special ingredients to include in our biscuits; we chose peppermint extract and choc-chips! We faced three problems whilst we were baking:
1) When we were rolling out the dough it went all sticky.
2) We struggled to separate the egg yolk from the egg white.
3) We forgot to sift the flour.
But we managed eventually to make 17 super scrummy biscuits. After we finished and had done the washing up, we took the biscuits to the kitchen to be cooked. Then we went back to the activity hall to design our biscuit boxes. A lady from a bakery came to judge our biscuits. After we finished our boxes and put our biscuits in them, we took it in turns to come up and present our biscuits and flavour combinations to the other schools and the judges. We let her taste them and then waited to hear who won. Sadly, we weren’t the winners but it didn’t matter because it was still really fun! Finally, we said goodbye to the other schools and made sure that they took their biscuits back with them.
