CREATIVE bakers from Kirkcaldy High School have wowed teachers and exam judges with their skills at an end of year assessment.

The S5 and S6 pupils all had to bake and decorate a cake for a special occasion for the finale of their Creative Cooking class, which carries an Intermediate 2 qualification.

And the 14 pupils, who have undertaken various creative cooking challenges throughout the year, impressed with intricate and eyecatching designs, ranging from cartoon characters and sports themes to beautiful floral displays and even a bottle of vodka!

Jackie Roberts, teacher of home economics who has been running the course this year, said she had been very impressed with the results.

“They all baked the cakes and put marzipan on them before the Easter holidays, then, since they came back this term they have been working on decorating them, with some stunning results,” she said.

Cree Johnston (17), said: “It has been an amazing course. I have studied hospitality since S2 and this was a good addition to it.”

Shannon Napier (17), added: “We had six periods a week to decorate our cakes and the course also involved keeping a diary of the different stages we had to work through.”
