Crofty Bake Off

On Monday 4th December the first every Crofty Bake Off competition was held across 8 of our schools. Nearly 200 of our students entered the competition. To enter they had to make 4 identical cupcakes, decorate them and bring them into school. 3 finalists from each school then travelled to Roskear School where the winner was chosen by a team of Senior Crofty MAT staff.

The overall winner was Leah from Treloweth who made some lovely Gingerbread House themed cupcakes. Their design and taste thoroughly impressed all of the judges. Leah received a special certificate, Crofty Bake Off apron and a mixing bowl full of ingredients for her next creation. All the finalists also received a Crofty Bake off apron and certificate.

We look forward to holding this event again in the future and seeing what our pupils can create next!
