The Great Holy Cross Bake-Off Commemorates WW1 with Cakes

Holy Cross Primary School’s PFA recently held their very own Great Holy Cross Bake Off. But it was a baking competition with a difference.

To celebrate and commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War 1 the children were set the task of producing baked goods with WW1 as the theme.

And the children rose to the challenge with aplomb, producing cakes and cookies that would wow even Paul Hollywood himself.

Judged by a panel of past and present members of our Armed Forces the Great Holy Cross Bake-Off was a resounding success with some incredible winning creations.

Headteacher, Mrs Cathy Dart, was incredibly impressed with the children’s culinary skills and said:

“Our children always give 100%. It doesn’t matter what we ask them to do, make or create they give it their best try. And each time I’m surprised by their wonderful creativity and commitment.”

Mrs Sue Figg, chairperson of the school PFA added:

“We were astounded by how good the cakes were, both visually and in taste. As usual the children of Holy Cross did amazing!”

“The PFA would like to thank Mr Spicer and Mr Newton for graciously giving their time to judge the cakes.”
