The Great Overlake Bake Show

This project will be modeled on The Great British Baking Show. The first four days of the project will be theme-based, e.g. cakes, cookies, bread, savory goods. Each of these days will start with a technical challenge designed to introduce students to standard baking techniques, and then move on to a signature bake focused on the theme for the day. The project will end on day five with the group using the skills and techniques acquired to prepare baked goods to be used in a service project targeted to the communities surrounding Overlake. Students will keep an online notebook throughout the week that will essentially become an interactive recipe book reflecting their experience, complete with notes, updates, and pictures.

Special Considerations

Participants must be willing to follow COVID guidelines.  Participants should only attend illness free. If a participant should test positive for COVID during the project, the student will be isolated, and the student’s family will be required to pick them up at their current location.  The family will bear all the costs associated with the student pick up. 

By selecting the above project, you and your family are accepting the financial responsibility for the cost of the projects.  This includes any unrecoverable expenses incurred if Overlake, or any federal, state or local government forces cancelation of the project, or if you or your family decide not to attend, or if your student becomes symptomatic and has to be isolated.
