Year 6 pupils at Wilson’s Endowed CE School in Over Kellet held a Cupcake Challenge in the style of The Great British Bake Off to raise funds for their Leavers’ Gift in the summer.

Pupils were invited to enter up to 6 cupcakes with interesting designs and absolutely no soggy bottoms!

Cupcakes varied in designs from the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Despicable Me characters and the solar system to pink hearts and flowers for Valentine’s Day!

The cupcakes were sold at playtime to raise money for a Leavers’ Gift.

In the past pupils have raised money for new play equipment, digital cameras and most recently a iPod docking station and amplifier.

The winners were awarded sets of children’s recipe cards and aprons.

Pupil Anna Ruth Ward, eight, and winner said: “I was excited to enter the competition and I like pink icing. I was really surprised to win and I like my prize too.”

Local official WI produce judge Anne Parr visited the school to choose the winners.

She said: “The cupcake designs were very imaginative. I am impressed with the very high standard and I never expected to see such a wide range of ideas.”

School head Jo Williams added: “I think it is a good idea for the children to have the opportunity to ‘give back’ to their school, encouraging community spirit.

“This event brought out some exceptionally creative and competitive young cooks as well as providing a delicious playtime treat.”
