Young bak­ers put skills to the test

Pilbara News - - Front Page - Ali­cia Per­era

De­li­cious smells of bak­ing wafted over Kar­ratha on Wed­nes­day courtesy of a cook­ing com­pe­ti­tion at the Youth Shed.

The Great Youth Shed Bake-Off chal­lenge drew about 30 lo­cal young peo­ple to come up with and make their own recipe from a set list of in­gre­di­ents, in the style of TV show The Great Aus­tralian Bake-Off.

Young­sters worked in small teams to make recipes rang­ing from choco­late chip cook­ies to brown­ies, lava cakes and banana muffins un­der in­tense time pres­sure.

Af­ter­wards, they had the chance to get cre­ative ic­ing their creations be­fore the best part — eat­ing them.

Youth Shed staff mem­ber and com­pe­ti­tion judge Me­gan Tay­lor chose the lava cake chefs as the win­ning team.

They won foot­balls and head­phones for their culi­nary ef­forts.

The Youth Shed holds cook­ing com­pe­ti­tions ev­ery school hol­i­days and they are among its most pop­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties.
