The Great British Bake Off may be off our screens, but pupils at a Dunmow primary school have been keeping the TV show alive with some cooking of their own.
Youngsters, at St Mary’s, on High Stile, spent last week baking and decorating cupcakes with the help of Dan Tucker, from BakeWELL, on Market Place.
The visit was part of an enterprise/entrepreneur project. After receiving a brief from ‘Lord Alan Sugar’ about setting up a baking business the pupils got into groups and formed small companies.
They then carried out market research, in the school playground, to find out what their peers liked best in a cupcake and with their results created it.
Dan went into the school to offer advice about how they can improve their first batch as they are going to be selling them at an end of term bake sale.

Teacher Lizzie White said: “It has been a really fun project for the children to be involved in and they have loved baking the cupcakes.
“We are really grateful that Dan has been able to come in and offer his expert advice.”
