What a fantastic week we have had!
Monday night saw a number of pupils competing for a place in the final, they all produced a fantastic selection of sweet & savoury scones for judging.A great deal of thought and effort had gone into deciding what flavour their scones would be.
The winners were Amy Gallacher – S1 & Brooke Ritchie -S3
Their efforts were rewarded with a place on friday morning to create their ‘Show stopping’ red nose themed cupcakes.
Thursday night saw the staff take up the challenge. Excitement had been building all week and recipes flying about, trial runs happening in preparation for the task. It is believed some staff may even have tried to shake their oppositions’ confidence by posting ‘burnt offerings’ on facebook!!
However on the night, stress levels rose, as did the colour in their cheeks! Again fantastic creations appeared with a whole variety of flavours in the scones.
The winner was Mr Kidd & his daughter Abby, with runners up Ms Armstrong & Ms Patterson.
Due to Mr Kidd being unavailable for the final – both runners up competed in the final.
The ‘ Show stopper ‘ creations were wonderful. Again , the two hour time slot proved a challenge, but they managed to get their selection of cakes on the presentation table in time for judging.
Mr Stewart took great delight in judging the finished items. Not an easy task!
The eventual winner was Ms Armstrong from CDT who made two contrasting varieties of cakes. White Choclate and raspberry & Chocolate nutella & hazelnut.
They were presented with beautifully crafted Red nose cake pops!
Well done to all who entered, it was a terrific competition. Along with the sale of the red nose cakes created by our S4 students, we managed to raise £165 towards the school total for Comic Relief.Thanks to all involved.
Photos will appear in due course!
