Kilmington children win muffin-making contest
Axe Valley pupils rise to cake-making challenge
MAKING and marketing muffins was the tasty challenge for youngsters at Axe Valley Community College.
Pupils from primary school across the area were invited to take part in the business and enterprise project.
Their brief was to work as a company in teams of six to design, make, package and market a muffin product which could be used to help promote a charity of their choice.
Youngsters from Kilmington, Axminster, Colyton, Membury, Shute and Chardstock primary schools took part and their muffins were tasted by various people at the college.
