Cup Cake Challenge – Year 5

Working in collaboration with Dan Tucker from Bakewells in Dunmow, Year 5 set up their own cupcake company and designed, tested and baked their own cupcake recipe. At the school’s summer fun day in May the children ran their own cupcake stall which raised an incredible £450 and was the most popular stall of the day. Two winning companies were then selected on the basis of how much profit they had made, how collaboratively they worked as a team and how good their customer service was. Mr Tucker helped select ‘Delight Bite’ with their Berry, Berry Tasty cupcake (lime sponge, strawberry icing and raspberry sauce) and ‘Caketastic’ with their Smartie Surprise cupcake (vanilla sponge with smarties inside, vanilla icing and smarties on top). Mr Tucker said

‘I was really impressed with how dedicated, attentive and engaged all the children were during this enterprise project. Their creativeness and enthusiasm made choosing the winners an extremely difficult task. The winning cupcakes have been on sale in Bakewell’s as ‘cupcakes of the month’ and have proved very popular, selling out every time.’

The Year 5 teachers Miss White and Miss Oggelsby said

‘ We are hugely proud of the children and their hard work. They loved seeing the growth of a product from initial conception to final point of sale and for the winner seeing their cupcakes on sale in Bakewells has been the ‘icing on the cake’! ‘
