Telford anniversary celebrated in Lilleshall school's bake-off competition

Telford | School events | Published:

Telford's 50th anniversary was the theme of a school's bake-off competition this year.

Youngsters at Lilleshall Primary School teamed up in their classes to bake a variety of cakes for the annual competition.

Eight cakes were scored by a panel of judges on Friday.

This year the reception class, who made a chocolate cake, were judged as the winners and claimed a prize cup and bake-off spoon.

Parents were invited into school during the afternoon to taste their creations.

Headteacher Christobel Cousins said: "We hold a bake-off competition every year where all of the children are involved in baking and making cakes in each class.

"This year they linked it with the 50 years of Telford so each cake had to represent an element of the town.

"The cakes featured the frog clock in the town centre, a climbing frame from the town park, The Wrekin, we had cakes based on Telford's roundabouts – there was a whole range."

She said children in the reception class cheered and took a bow when they were announced as the winners.

Mrs Cousins said: "Their cake had elements of The Wrekin and the Iron Bridge. There were also drawings of elements of Telford around the edge on rice paper.

"It was great fun this year. "The children just loved it."
