Mirasol was what I named my chocolate-coffee-coconut cake, because it looked a bit like a sunflower. Unfortunately, this creative name did not inspire the judges to vote me a winner, because once again no prize came my way…although the principal did say that she really liked it.
Today was the AGGS Human Rights Group Fair Trade Bake Sale, and it was a complete and resounding success. Last year we raised about $300, but this year, due to more entries, better advertisement and some nifty notices around the school – plus allowing entries to be viewed before the competition, we raised $840 – almost triple! This sum included repaying floats and the like.We will next be deciding what to do with the money – last year we donated it to Oxfam.
There were some amazing entries, which included the below:
One of the other coffee cake entries. As you can see, I was slightly outclassed there.
One of the winning entries, this lion chocolate cake was made by a senior and showcased school pride (the rampant lion is our school crest). A very sweet success, with all that icing!
You may not see this very well, but these are triple-chocolate cupcakes, which won the creativity prize. They were chocolate cupcakes with enormous swirls of rich chocolate icing and hand-crafted chocolate men on top. They were made by a Yr 10 whose father is a chocolatier, and it looks like she’s inherited his talents!
This house-cake also won a prize, and was beautifully iced as well.
And last, but certainly not least, the supreme winner went to this majestic cake, aptly called “Do You Want Chocolate With That?” The student who made this takes catering, so you can be sure it tasted even better than it looked, and it sold out after the first 10 minutes of the sale!
