      No but my teacher is like telling us to make up our minds what to do

      What I did was looked at the years previous tasks and made a dish based on each task. Your knife skills are very important so make sure you can cut meat and veg. Did you prefer baking or cooking?

      Thank you so much. I prefer baking rather than cooking. I was looking at the 2015 practical and I like the special occasion one

      it all depends on your brief Sarah! hopefully you will get a baking one if that's what you prefer. A cake with decoration would be a good one for the special occasion! Perhaps look at something that will show an ample amount of skills but isn't too difficult! best of luck!

      thanks so much caitriona, what else should I do for the special occasion eg one has to be savory

      and I cant bake scones at all haha

      for savoury maybe do cheese scones? they contain no sugar but are still easy to make! Sausage rolls are easy too! or bruschetta is nice, savoury and very simple!

      you wouldn't know any good recipes for scones. the one in my home ec book is laid out wrong (so my teacher says anyways)?
