There was a great air of excitement in our school on Tuesday last when nineteen students competed for the Convent of Mercy CEIST Bake-off title of 2017. A total of fourteen girls, Sharla Dalton, 3D, Sinead Kelly 3B, Eleanor Walsh 3C, Rachel O’Grady 3C, Danielle Saunderson 2A, Katie Hennessy 2A, Alicia Greene 2A, Zulikhan Magomayeva 2A, Ella Fitzmaurice 2C, Maeve Farrell 2C, Amy Fitzmaurice 1C, Emily Feeley 1B, Niamh Lennon 1B and Fiona Garvey 1B contested the junior title and five girls Rachel Corcoran 6A, Ruth Walsh 6D, Alison Downie 6C, Aine O’Connor 6D and Patrycja Jedrych 5D contested the senior title. The senior category bake-off is centred on the theme of “Mother Nature” where students can choose to depict their interpretation of this theme as creatively as possible. At junior level there are no restrictions of a theme and the girls are free to depict any idea they wish. Students must design, bake and decorate their novelty cake with this theme in mind in three hours. The unenviable task of choosing the winners was given to Mr. Declan Molloy and Ms. Alison Crean, who after hours of judging the presentation, the texture and the taste of the cakes awarded the much coveted titles to Ruth Walsh (6th year) in the Senior category and to Emily Feeley (1st year) in the junior category. Congratulations to all who competed on the day and no doubt there are many girls who have the 2018 title in their sights. A sincere thank you to Mr. Declan Molloy and Ms. Alison Crean for their expertise in judging and advice offered to the girls post judging. Also a big thank you to Ms. Cleary (Home Economics teacher) who organised this event in our school. The girl’s entries will go forward to the next round of the CEIST Bake-off. We wish all girls the best of luck in the competition.
