Both Mia and Chloe took the challenge, with Mia making a very delicious looking chocolate brownie cake and Chloe making a sponge cake which was her way of thanking all the NHS staff who are doing and continue to do so much for us all. Both girls cakes looked very appetising and made Miss O'Shea feel very hungry just looking at them. This will go towards their Bronze certificate.
