The Great British Staff Bake Off at Sherborne Primary School


With the ever-popular Great British Bake Off on our televisions the wellbeing team at Sherborne Primary School thought it would be a wonderful idea to have their very own Staff Bake Off Challenge.
Participants were asked to bake a sponge cake with an autumnal theme.
The cakes were baked at home and brought into school to be judged by the school council representatives, with marks being awarded for both taste and appearance.
The children were amazed at the standard of the cakes and thoroughly enjoyed tasting them! Among the entries there were cakes designed to look like a lit bonfire, a hibernating hedgehog and a crackling woodland chocolate delight.
The overall winner was Sue Read who baked a magnificent
Cake entitled Mouse House.
The cakes, along with some donations baked by members of the school council, were all sold after school and they raised a total of £119.66.
A wonderful time was had by all and there’s now talk of an Easter Bake Off Challenge …
