Tunnock's Teacake Challenge

Year 9 and 10 Hospitality and Catering students are taking part in the  Tunnock's Teacake Challenge!

Why set up a challenge?

The new GCSE and vocational courses require students to use good presentation skills and they need to practice these for their exams. The original idea was a call out to many teachers for their students to take part in a challenge which was fun and a great way of presenting these skills for the exams, covering a serious side to the syllabus. 

Students are required to produce a plate with a focus on the presentation of a Tunnock's Teacake. Judges will be looking for the most stunning plate created. 

In preparation for the skills required students are practising creative knife skills and using ingredients that will help develop design ideas.
