Lichfield school pupils have been busy baking as part of an enterprise project.

The 23 eight and nine-year-olds from Willows Primary School visited city baking academy Cakeydora after being set a commercial challenge.

They raised £200 with an Easter egg hunt to fund the chance to learn a new skill and decided to opt for baking their own cakes.

Cakeydora’s owner Julie Crisp led a 90-minute masterclass where the children mixed, measured and piped their own cupcakes and created their own unique designs, ranging from butterflies to action heroes.

Julie said: “We had a great morning with the children and I was really impressed with their enthusiasm as well as their baking and decorating skills.

“Opening our doors and linking-up with organisations from Lichfield is something that is really important to us as we try and keep everything we do as local as possible.”

Teacher Hannah Clarkeadded: “The kids have had a fabulous time today and the whole project has been a real success.

“Where possible, we try to give our pupils as many hands-on learning opportunities as is feasible and this one has been a particular success story – so much so that the kids were practising at home even before stepping foot inside the academy.”
