Year 7 and 8 students at Danesfield and Minehead Middle Schools have been taking part in the first round of the West Somerset Bake Off, as part of their Food Technology classes. As well as baking their entries, students have also been learning about jobs in catering and the routes into this industry.

Their brief for the bake off was: The Beachcomber Inn is a restaurant in Butlin’s resort Minehead. They serve coffees during the day and would like to encourage more visitors to come to the restaurant for a hot drink. They want to serve a free biscuit with all hot drinks.

The task is to work in pairs to design and make a biscuit to put forward to the judges. It will be judged on how tasty the biscuit is, as well as how attractive it is and how creative you have been with the design.
