Following hot on the heels of Paul, Pru, Noel and Sandie, Birkdale Senior School’s very own baking competition relaunched this week in J17, with a line-up of eager S2 bakers ready to display their creations. This week was ‘Freestyle’ – sticky chocolate Brownies were conjured up by Heath Justice, and Oliver Jermy produced some marvellous marshmallow chocolate sticks! One pupil in particular however took the offer of ‘freestyle’ to its limits…

…Ramez Farag opted to bring in a piece of marinated and roasted beef, accompanied by braised potatoes and vegetables! Needless to say, future weeks will include strictly baked products only, when the competition begins in earnest – but well done to Ramez for ‘thinking outside the box!’ GBBO takes place on a Wednesday from 1.15, and this half-term all S2 boys are welcome.
