Two students from Clare and Cork have been named Ireland’s ’Best Student Bakers’ in the ‘CEIST All Ireland Bake-Off’, supported by Odlums and judged by Great British Bake-Off contestant Imelda McCarron.

Aoife Kelly and Sarah Clifford, from Clare and Cork, have claimed the top spots in the CEIST All Ireland Bake-Off, sponsored by Odlums. The duo saw off competition from 13  secondary schools across Ireland in the contest, the aim of which is to encourage a new generation of bakers. Students were asked to design, plan and bake a novelty cake. The ‘CEIST All Ireland Bake-Off’ has two categories – Junior (1st – 3rd year) and Senior (4th – 6th year). While students in the Junior category were asked to design, bake and present a cake based on a theme of their choice, students in the Senior category were required to design, bake and decorate a cake around the theme of ‘Family’.

Aoife Kelly of St. Joseph’s Secondary, Tulla, Co. Clare was named as the winner of the Senior category for her design, an intricate family tree topped off with delicious green and pick icing. Sarah Clifford from St Mary’s in Mallow, Co. Cork was chosen as the winner of the Junior category for her design, a white and pink bunny decorated with swirls of pink, blue and purple icing.

Over the past four years, Odlums have been a proud supporter of this initiative, witnessing at first-hand the truly talented student bakers we have across the country.

“It is always encouraging to see the high calibre of entries we receive every year,” said judge and Odlums brand ambassador Catherine Leyden, “and this year was no different. Watching our 2019 finalists pour their heart and soul into their designs, their passion for perfection and desire to create something truly unique has been eye-opening.

“We have a highly skilled and talented number of bakers across the country,” Leyden said. “Well done to everyone who submitted entries, to those shortlisted and our overall winners Aoife and Sarah, it has been a fantastic effort by all.”
