2021 NYES Catering Bake Off Competition

It’s nearly the Summer holidays, and to get you excited we wanted to help start you and your pupils’ creative skills flowing.

NYES Catering is excited to announce our 2021 Bake Off Competition! What masterpiece will your pupils create?


We want pupils to set their creative minds free, and design and make a sweet or savoury item to rival the official Great British Bake Off entries – pupils can be as adventurous with this task as they like, but they must contain either a fruit or vegetable. We also would love to hear why they’ve chosen their item, and the fun they had creating it!

We’ve enlisted the help of fantastic local baker and business owner Victoria Quilter of Tor Bakes Cakes to judge along with our two in-house judges. Victoria (Tor) started baking when she was a young girl, which quickly developed into a passion for baking; ultimately leading her to opening her own baking business, Tor Bakes Cakes, a couple of years ago. Tor can’t wait to see all of the creative and tasty looking entries!

The 2021 NYES Catering Star Baker will win a personalised baking set and a baking session (for the winner and two friends) with the NYES Catering Team over the Summer holidays.

We will also share a couple of our favourite baking recipes to help aid with the creative mind flow!

How to enter

Simply email a photo of your pupils’ bake off item or your pupil and their item, along with the recipe and name of the item, and why they’ve chosen the fruit/vegetable within their item to:
