Wednesday 3rd June: Year 4R Entrepreneur Week – Product Design!

Please email any work not written on the blog to

Hello year 4! Yesterday, you learned all about what it takes to be a great entrepreneur. You looked at some examples of people who have baked their way to success and came up with a business plan of your own. Today we will be focusing on a key part of your baking business…THE PRODUCT.
Product: Something that is manufactured (made) for sale.

Today you will be designing your cake product. You will need to consider the market research you collected yesterday. What is your family’s favourite type of cake? Will you be making cupcakes? or one big cake? What will your cake(s) look like? How will you make them appealing to buyers? The answers to these questions need to inform your cake design today.

For the first task, we will be taking inspiration from The Great British Bake Off! Watch the clips below and answer the questions.
1) What makes a cake a success? (What did the judges like about these cakes?)
3) How did the bakers make their cakes look appealing and exciting?
4) What will be the star ingredient in your cake?
5) Why is flavour important?
6) How will you make your cake(s) stand out?

Follow the link to watch Great British Bake Off Fruit Cake Challenge:

Watch the clip below to see what the judges thought of some very creative ‘illusion cakes’ (cakes made to look like something else…)

DAY 2: Task 2 – Design Your Cake!
Draw and label your cake design- remember it has to look attractive and include information about the key flavours you would like the buyer to enjoy! Have a look at the pictures below for some ideas:

DAY 2: TASK 3 – Marketing: Cake Sale Poster!
Okay, so you have your product design, now you need to ADVERTISE! One of the best ways to do this is to create a colourful poster to attract people to your cake sale. Imagine your cake(s) are going to be sold at the school summer fair. You can draw or use word or pic-collage to create your cake sale poster. Remember, you need to include the following key information:
