Who won the Bradon Bake off?

A total of 18 students were selected to take part in the Bradon Bake off out of over 50 submissions made. The entries were selected on the 'signature bake' recipes they submitted beforehand and how  their entries were pitched, for example some brought in bakes for Food Technology's competition organiser, Miss Smith, to try, whilst others presented a 'bake off' style proposal including sketches and ingredients.

The Bradon bakers had  1 hour and 30 minutes to complete the 'Technical Challenge' which began promptly at 9.05am. The final 'Signature Bake' Challenge commenced at 11.30am and students had 3 hours and 25 mins to make, bake and present their 'Signature Bake' to the panel of judges at 2.55pm.

Alix Young, Manager of the Pear Tree at Purton helped judged the bakes along with chef Lewis Reason. Alix had already spent the morning at Bradon Forest School involved in the student Mock Interviews.

First place went to Year 10 student Elisa Mc Gill, who wowed judges with her perfectly baked chocolate and orange tart. Year 7 student Keira King came a close second with her 'beautiful' strawberry and white chocolate cake. Third place went to Meghan Lacey in Year 9 for her fantastic chocolate M&Ms cake.

Alix Young from the Pear Tree said, It is amazing to see such fabulous creations. It's incredible to think what they might achieve one day if they are cooking at this level now.
