The students all worked as a team to make the crepes…

…then the competition began when the fillings and decoration started!!

They had plenty of tasty fillings and toppings to choose from; strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, bananas, macadamia nuts, cashew nuts, honey, melted chocolate, honey, whipped cream, marshmallows and Nutella!

They were each scored on the effort they put in and the presentation of their crepes. Taste was going to be another factor but I wasn’t able to try all of them!!

This meant plenty of Tim Tams for each of us!!

We played a game of Uno which I quickly won, but Maya and Munae continued for what seemed to be a never ending game! They each kept getting down to their last card before then having to pick up multiple cards, numerous times! Munae eventually won second place and they then headed off to join their friends at the beach!
