Showstoppers delight in GDST Bake Off final at Sydenham High
Talented bakers from eight GDST schools and two local secondary schools delivered showstoppers to rival those seen on the Great British Bake Off in the final of the first GDST London Bake Off, hosted by Sydenham High School.
The ten contestants were from: Bromley High, Croydon High, Kingsdale Foundation School, Notting Hill & Ealing High, Streatham & Clapham High, Sydenham School and Sydenham High, with ages ranging from 12 to 17.
Chief judges Mrs Katharine Woodcock, Sydenham High’s Headmistress, and Ms Farah Hamid, founder and owner of Kitchen Skills, London’s newest cookery school, were amazed and delighted by the young baker’s efforts.
The showstoppers featured everything from a ski lift to a science clamp stand, as well as more regular themes such as Christmas reindeer and summery ice cream cones
“I am absolutely blown away by the standard today – the variety of techniques and the flavours. I am very impressed so it’s been a hard decision to pick the winner.”
