TEENAGE chefs have been battling it out in the kitchen for a taste of sweet success.
A "design a dessert" competition organised by Huddersfield Technical College reached its climax yesterday.
Ten teams from schools across Kirklees had an hour to produce their unique puddings and present them to a panel of judges, including college catering lecturer Pam Mollen and Andrew Bradley, of Bradleys restaurant in Fitzwilliam Street, Huddersfield.
Each team was marked on presentation, taste and even how well they organised their kitchen while cooking.
Two students from Thornhill Science College, Dewsbury, Jonathon Wolfenden and Declan Ryan, both aged 13, were triumphant with their creation, Pandora's Box. Now the dessert will be added to the menu at Bradleys!
Jonathon said: "We looked through some cookery books and decided what we liked best. Then we put the best bits together and made something new."
Declan said the pair had only started cooking when they began high school but he was now considering training to be a chef.
The duo won a meal at the technical college's gourmet restaurant where their dessert will be on sale. They also received gift vouchers and a place on the college's junior chef course, run by Pam Mollen.
She said: "It was clear that the boys had done their homework and really thought about how the dessert would work.
"They have performed at a really high standard and they should be very proud of what they have achieved."
Andrew Bradley said he would be putting the dessert on his restaurant's menu.
"It is a great recipe," he said. "All the entrants did really well."
