A Baking Christmas Carol

We recently asked local primary school children to come up with Christmas recipes inspired by A Christmas Carol. The 4 runners up entries are –

Scrooges Money Cake by Harriet from Fairfield Prep School.
Strawberry and Chocolate Mistletoe by Amrita from Fairfield Prep School.
Victorian Guitar Cake by Rebecca from Moorfield Primary School.
Mints Pie by Zoe from Moorfield Primary School.

We’ve put in a sample below but all four runners up recipes can be downloaded for printing from the links to the side of this screen.

The winning 3 entries will be published in our Christmas Carol programme which will be available at The Lowry from December 3rd and will each receive a £10 book token. And who knows, the team here at The Library Theatre might just whip up a few batches of the winning cakes to give out to some lucky customers!
