Delicious smells floated around The Abbey this week as the Year 5 children took part in Bake a Cake for the Queen competition. Oliver Laxton, Imogen Melrose and Grace Godwin baked a stylish hat made from coconut, lime and courgette, complete with specially baked carrot dog cakes. The Queen’s corgi’s would be thrilled.
Chloe MacMillan baked two delicious carrot cakes and then put them together with brightly coloured icing and edible jewels to create a splendid crown. To complete the look she had made an edible corgi to stick on the front and scattered glacier mints around the edge which made the cake look as if had been encrusted with diamonds.
Recipes and photos are soon to be submitted to a National Competition and we will keep you posted of the outcome.
