Children at a primary school swapped their pencils for whisks in a bid to compete in the Great Ursuline Bake Off

Last week, teacher and keen baker Amelia Allen from the Ursuline Preparatory School, Brentwood, hosted a baking competition that was open to pupils from pre-reception (nursery), up to Year 6 (aged 10-11).

Depending on their age group, the children were given the task of baking signature cupcakes, technical biscuits or Showstopper sponges, with a sport theme decoration or hidden surprise inside.

Nearly 100 children entered the contest and each one made a donation to Macmillan Cancer Support.

The judges had the impossible tasks of deciding the winners for each category, with many making great bakes with delicious flavours, daring designs and not a soggy bottom in sight.

Pupils, staff, friends and families of the school then all enjoyed a coffee morning and bake sale.

More than £1,200 was raised for the charity.

Headmistress Pauline Wilson said: “I was very impressed with the way the whole school community came together to support and raise money for Macmillan.

“I’m delighted that everybody had a lovely day working and being together.”
