Classic Bakes at Roman Event

21 October 2016

Last Friday, two pairs from each Year 7 form took part in the ‘Roman Bake Off 2016’, hosted by the Classics and Food and Nutrition departments.

The girls’ task was to bake a sponge-based cake with a Classical theme. From temples to Roman numerals, the girls threw themselves into the challenge and produced some very impressive bakes.

The winners came from 7E who baked a scrumptious chocolate sponge in the shape of Mount Vesuvius. This complemented the Pompeian theme in their Latin textbooks and it was a pleasure to see their research and planning come alive in bright, bubbling volcano form!

Many thanks to all the girls who participated and the staff who supported the event.
