The Great CLS Virtual Bake Off

Friday, 22 May 2020

This term, we took our CLS Bake OFF virtual and launched the first-ever Great CLS Virtual Bake Off and opened up the categories to pupils, parents, staff and alumni. The bakes were judged by none other than the 2019 Great Britsh Bake Off contestants! 

The theme of the Showstopper Challenge was 'A bake to make people smile', and this could be interpreted however contestants liked in order to create and decorate a bake which would lift people’s spirits. Sweet, savoury, pastry, cake, meringue, bread, dessert, patisserie - you name it, we got it! 

We were inundated with some absolutely fantastic entries, making for an extremely hard job for the judges - a job made even harder by not being able to taste the bakes! 

Eventually, the winners were decided and we are sending a huge congratulations to  Arthur, Year 8 for his meringue rainbow, Development officer, James for his seashell cupcakes, parent, Ana for her 'Teachers make the world go round' cake, Alumnus, Alfie for his francesinha sandwich and sibling Katya, for her beautiful cake 'A Day at the Beach'. 

The winning entries are being published as part of a 'Lockdown Cookbook' so keep your eyes peeled!
