Last Wednesday was competition time for T3 with our big Masterchef Bake-Off. To start the session, Mel showed us what we would be cooking with and then we set out to start baking – Lemon Slice!
We went to our groups and decided who would be leader and who would be reader. We all had the same recipe to follow, but we had to double all the ingredients, which was challenging – and we had the pressure of a time limit.
First we made the base then, when it was cooking, we made the top. After we took the base out we put the top on it then checked to see if we had enough time left before we put it back in the oven. We nearly had a disaster when we took ours out of the oven because we had one hand underneath and an oven mitt on top and it took a lot of the top off!
Ellie and Mel were the Masterchef Judges. They were judging the Lemon Slice dishes on: taste, presentation and texture.
