Platinum Jubilee Baking Competition

The Chairman of Kent County Council launches schools Platinum Jubilee Baking Competition.

This year marks Her Majesty The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and to celebrate the occasion the Chairman of Kent County Council, Mrs Lesley Game, is inviting students in three age groups to take part in a baking competition.

The competition will be divided into three categories:

  • Key Stage Two who will be challenged to bake six cupcakes
  • Key Stage Three who will be challenged to bake a sponge cake
  • Key Stage Four who will be challenged to bake a three-layer cake.

All the cakes should be decorated with a Platinum Jubilee theme.

Students will have the opportunity to have their cake designing skills put to the test by planning and designing their cakes on paper first and sending either a drawing or a photograph of their cake, with a description of the flavours to be used, to by Friday 10 June 2022.

A panel of judges, including the Chairman of the Council, will select five finalists in each category and invite them to bake their cakes and bring them to County Hall on Friday 1 July 2022 for the final judging. The panel of judges will select a winner and two runners up in each category.

Each finalist will receive a Platinum Jubilee commemorative coin. The third-place finalist will receive a £10 Amazon Voucher, the second-place finalist will receive a £20 Amazon voucher and the winner in each category will receive a £30 Amazon voucher plus a £100 book voucher for their school.

Full details of the competition can be found in the letter from the Chairman (PDF, 210.1 KB) but if you have any queries, please contact the Civic Office at Kent County Council by emailing

The Chairman hopes as many students as possible from across Kent will take part in the competition to help celebrate the Platinum Jubilee.
