Weekend Eats

The weeks seem to slip by and my blog gets pushed to the bottom of the pile. However here we re again with another weeks break from school. This term has been very hectic as I started a mini-enterprise with my class of Year 9 pupils (aged 14-15). They have called the business 'Weekend Eats', providing cakes,pastries and anything else they fancy making to eat at the weekend. They have made a great impact and sell pre-ordered food to parents and staff for them to eat at the weekend.I have posted the order form below for you to see the variety of products being made. We are now into our fourth week with another four to go before the end of term. There have been a few hiccups with apologies to the person who never received their Brownie and to the person who bought a lemon drizzle cake with no lemon as we found the lemon still sitting on the table after all the orders had been collected. However that's buisness and they are enjoying every minute of it.

Special Request
Rocky Road Crunch £3.00

A tray of crunchy chocolate coated biscuits,
with marshmallows and maltesers
Cut into squares or fingers and……. Well just eat it. Yummy!

Lemon Drizzle Cake £2.00
A tangy cake made in a loaf tin, with a drizzle of lemon sauce

Carrot Cake with Orange Frosting £3.00
A yummy, scrummy moist cake made with carrots and oranges

Scones 30p each
Fruit, Cheese or Cherry and Ginger

One Crust Apple Pie £1.50
An American pie made famous by Delia Smith
Uses less pastry so easy on the waistline and you
can see the fruit inside

Jar of Orange and Ginger Marmalade £1.00
Shreds of orange blended with ginger pieces

Chocolate Cake £3.00
That extra special slice of chocolate cake, with chocolate filling and dredged with icing sugar

What could be better then filling up the cake tin with these goodies for the weekend.
They are in profit at the moment, so here's hoping they do well.

Happy Week

Good for you and the students - what a great idea. Everything sounds delicious - wish I could put in an order!

Such a neat idea. I am sure it teaches the youngsters the value of money. They get to see what it take to produce a product and how to market your wares.
Wow, if I were near I would want one of each. Congratulations upon your worthy work.
