Lepton youngsters rise to bake-off challenge

Children enjoy cake making event

Bake-off challenge for Lepton children. The REACH club at Rowley Lane Junior and Infants School held a cake baking workshop

Children emulated TV chefs Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood with their own bake-off event.

Youngsters aged between three and 10 were given recipes and challenged to “rise to the occasion”.

The event, hosted at the REACH club at Rowley Lane Junior and Infant school at Lepton, was designed to get children interested in baking and cooking.

Organiser, Mary Moss, said: “We tried to imitate “The Great British Bake Off” .

“The children were all so excited and it really turned out to be great fun for everyone and a great way to get children into baking!

“The room was decorated with bunting and each child was allocated a recipe card, their own workstations and encouraged to weigh out the ingredients for the cupcakes they were to make, bake and decorate.

“An independent judge then tested the cakes and selected an ultimate winner. “Bearing in mind the children were so young they all did extremely well and although all the cakes were extremely tasty there could only be two winners. They were, Ben Turner, aged 3 and Lily Rudd aged 5.”

Both winners received a Bake Off medal and every child was presented with a wooden spoon with the message “I took part in the REACH Bake Off 2014”.

“We are now preparing to send a scrap book of the event to Mary Berry!”
