‘Confectioneering’ for Cancer Research

Creative Confectioneers: Alice and ImogenGinger Bread House - a feat of confectioneering!

In an incredible feat of ‘Confectioneering’, Alice Foster and Imogen Hunt, Year 10 students at Maryhill High School, created this fabulous Christmas themed cake to raise money for Cancer Research.  The fine detail, all of which is edible, includes a ‘Ginger Bread House’ surrounded by freshly fallen snow, decorated with fairy lights and stuffed to the brim with mini chococlate bars; Santa passing by on a sleigh pulled by three chocolate reindeer; colourful pathways made from Smarties; a deliciously iced Snow Man and a beautifully ornate Candy Christmas Tree. Even the roof of the house is tiled with Chocolate Buttons and Jelly Beans.

During break times this week, fellow students and staff at Maryhill will pay to peek through the tiny doorway and guess at the number of mini chocolate bars concealed within the Ginger Bread House.  The closest to the correct figure will win the cake!

All proceeds are to be donated to Cancer Research.
