Year 7 Pupils Join Roman Bake Off

Senior School

20 October 2023

On Friday eight pairs of girls from Year 7 took part in the annual Roman Bake Off hosted by the Classics and Food and Nutrition departments. The girls’ task was to bake a cake or sweet treat with a Classical theme. 

From the Colosseum to Roman numerals, the girls threw themselves into the challenge and produced some very impressive bakes. The winners baked a beautiful chocolate orange cake shaped like a Roman helmet; we highly rated the authenticity! The runner up cakes were shaped like Mount Vesuvius and the Colosseum.  

It was a pleasure to see the girls’ research and planning come alive in baked form! Many thanks to all the girls who participated. We also extend our thanks to our deputy head Mrs Purewal and headmistress Mrs Macro for judging.   

We’re looking forward to the Classical delights of next year already!
