The sweet aroma of cake and icing filled the Geography Department recently during the first ever Great Geography Bake Off, where staff and students were challenged to bake a cake with a geographical theme.


Twenty-six entries were received, with bakers entering as individuals or in teams of three, and included a range of gravity-defying masterpieces such as 3D globes, towering volcanoes and detailed flags. The cakes formed the centrepiece of the department’s Open Evening display before being judged, sliced and sold at the Macmillan coffee morning the following day.


The winner was Rachel Cleal in Year 7 for a 3D globe cake with accurate icing countries and individually labelled flags featuring the maps of each country. She was presented with a £10 voucher and the Geography Bake Off winner’s apron. The runners up who were awarded wooden spoon trophies were a team of Year 7’s Jess Bennett, Ava Leffers-Smith and Sophie Singleton, with a 3D river landscape featuring a glittery river and icing mountains, and Year 7 Holly Wilmott with a layered breakdown of the Bournemouth cliffs, along with Mrs Phillips (PE) the only staff entry.


Mrs Goss, who organised the competition, said, “Congratulations to all those who took part – the entries displayed fantastic creativity, excellent attention to detail and great geographical knowledge!”
