Howick High and practical Consumer Studies


As part of the Grade 11 Consumer Studies coursework, the class learned to bake and decorate a sponge cake. To enhance the learning experience, Alexander Poltera Executive Chef and Instructor at Fern Hill Hotel and Training College, and his Head Pastry Chef, Mums Cele, were invited to critique the cakes and give the pupils some valuable feedback. They also selected the cake which they felt had displayed a good variety of icing and decorating skills and this was awarded to Kendal Havard (left) and Dannica Baillie (right). They have been awarded a private skills lesson at the Training College.
