Cronton Sixth Form College and Riverside College recently came together to raise almost £700 for Macmillan Cancer Support at their Macmillan Coffee Morning, whilst also competing against each other at the annual ‘Great College Bake Off’.
Unlike previous years, this year’s Bake Off competition wasn’t just about the best individual baker, this time there was fierce competition between the two colleges to find out which campus has the superior baking skills.
The panel of taste judges consisted of College Managers, Thalia Bell, Julie Holland, and Jayne Smith headed by College Principal Mary Murphy, who were all keen to taste the amazing selection of entries. After narrowing it down to two finalists the panel agreed on this year’s winner.
The winner of the Great College Bake Off 2021 was announced as Riverside College, with Student Learning Support Administrator Lisa Street taking the crown. Her delicious cupcakes were a tremendous success and were “baked to perfection and beautifully decorated.”
Lisa was delighted to win this year’s battle, and was also able to take the bragging rights home, as the competition runner-up was Lisa’s mum, Carol Walker, Health and Social Care Placement Officer, who came in at a close second!
Both colleges hosted a successful Macmillan Coffee Morning, with all of the fabulous tasty bakes made by staff and students going on sale to raise an incredible £669, with donations still coming in.
