The Mayor of Croydon, Councillor Sherwan Chowdhury, with Councillor Toni Letts and local cake business owner Tracey Rashid joined Croydon College’s vice principal Ann-Christine Harland for our cake competition.

Our Level 2 and 3 Catering students were given the brief to design a cake that represented Croydon to them. The impressive designs showcased Croydon’s diversity, its inclusivity and community spirit, local businesses, and its drive to stamp out youth violence.

The winner was Ummee Mohamoodally

The Mayor of Croydon said: “It’s amazing to bring people together and see the excellent work from the students. It encourages others that we were joined by cake expert Tracey Rashid.”

Councillor Toni Letts added: “The thought that went into these designs created a great competition showing just how professional the students are.”

Tracey Rashid said: “I was really impressed with how the cakes tasted and the range of flavours. It’s amazing the thought that went into the Croydon designs. It’s brave to put a knife crime design on a cake, but it’s good to see that. It’s been lovely to see the students take care of the whole service from start to finish.”

Clare Price added: “I’m so proud of the students and staff for continuing to be so committed and enthusiastic every day. I’m grateful for a wonderful team!”
