TWO year seven pupils from Midhurst Rother College who designed cakes for a national charity competition have won the top prizes.

Lucy West came first in the Dreams Come True cake competition, with classmate Sophie Brownbill coming a close second out of entries from all over the country.

The judges commended Lucy for all the work and though she put in to her design, and praised her creativity.

Claire Hamers, art teacher, said, “I gave the students a short outline of the charity Dreams Come True, but most students were already aware of the wonderful work they do.

“The competition brief encouraged students to be imaginative, creative and show their personality through the design.

“What was most exciting for them was the prospect of their design being turned into a reality. I wanted students to create designs showing clear details such as flavours, and textures. They did all the rest, all of the entries were fantastic and the final result speaks for itself!”

Lucy’s prize was a Hamley’s goody bag, an overnight stay in a London hotel, and the presentation of her cake, baked and decorated for a special party held at Hamley’s toy shop in London last Sunday which Sophie and her family also attended.
