STUDENTS COOK UP CAKES FOR CHARITY COFFEE MORNING
Shoppers in Wolverhampton city centre can tuck-in to freshly baked cakes, biscuits and pastries cooked up by students at City of Wolverhampton College at a charity coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
The event – at the college’s Metro One campus in Bilston Street – has been organised by students studying for bakery, cookery and hospitality qualifications as part of the charity’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday, 25 September.
Heath Arnfield, curriculum manager for catering at the college said: “Our students are really looking forward to welcoming shoppers to the coffee morning and to selling their freshly baked cakes, biscuits and pastries to raise money for such a good cause.
“Last year’s event raised over £160 and, thanks to the growing popularity of the bakery shop among shoppers and workers in the city centre, we are hoping to beat that figure this year.”
The event will run from 10am to 12pm and will also feature a ‘baked or faked’ challenge to see if customers can tell the difference between homemade and shop bought cakes, a sweepstake to guess the number of edible spots on a cake, and a raffle with a range of tasty prizes.
The college offers a range of full and part-time cookery, bakery and hospitality qualifications and, as part of their course, students gain experience of working in a commercial environment in the on-site bakery and popular Academy restaurant.
