Canon Slade students always love a baking competition, so despite the lockdown, I thought it would be a good idea to invite everyone to ‘bake a rainbow’ to celebrate the hard work by our friends and family working in the NHS during these difficult times.

We had lots of entries ranging from a jelly (with its own pot of gold!) to a rainbow salad and lots of magnificent cakes from students from year 7 to year 13. The standard, as always, was very high and they could only be judged on appearance, although many had amazing looking inside layers with multitude of colours.

All the entrants were winners as all had a product to share with their families, who I am sure really appreciated a treat during lockdown.

Thanks to the families too, who I hope weren’t left with too much washing up!

Well done to all the entrants-you are all winners!

The quality of the entrants was amazing and I was so impressed with so many of these. Some of the skills shown were fantastic (many from younger pupils). Judging was exceptionally difficult-but I am pleased that everyone was a winner and ‘the rainbow’ has touched many families. I hope it will be one of the things that you remember about lockdown. Keep baking!
