The Senior School S3 Birkdale Bake-off competition continues apace, entering its third week. A mind-blowing fifteen bakers produced offerings this time round, and thematically was the famed ‘bread week’, and the boys involved rolled up their sleeves, donned their aprons, and proceeded to concoct some bodacious buns and lip-smacking loaves. Ben’s ‘seeded bread rolls’ drew gasps of admiration, whilst Sami and Suvam went ‘off-piste’ with plumptious banana loaves. Oliver produced his usual consistent baking, and Freddie conjured up an ambitious plaited loaf. However, Harry won the day with his outrageously delicious seeded batch. Well done to all those bakers who took part, now it is time to gird your cake-tins for next week’s ambiguously named ‘tart week’. In addition to the usual munching and merriment, we have a surprise guest judge appearing in the tent on Tuesday…time to get baking!
