See the amazing photos below!

You might remember a competition we had a few weeks ago all about making your own chocolate bar!

It was run by the Institute of Technology and Engineering and was all about designing food from the future.

Well, the lucky winner has been announced and, as promised, they got to make their creation.

Catherine Young who is 16 got to travel to Bournville, home of Cadbury’s and see her out of this world idea come to life…

Beating hundreds of applicants, Catherine’s space themed entry includes a mix of moulds, shapes, textures and techniques of food engineering.

It also is packed with delicious ingredients to create something truly impressive!

Her idea includes mixing popping candy, marshmallows, milky moons and crunchy crater biscuits all in a smooth Cadbury Dairy Milk futuristic rocket-shaped mould.

Catherine said:

I was so excited when I saw the competition. I love chocolate and had loads of fun coming up with my idea. Meeting the engineers today and visiting the chocolate factory is something I’ll never forget.

The competition was called ‘I See More’ and was designed to get you thinking about engineering.

That’s because there’s a shortage of engineers in the UK

Nigel Fine, who is the Chief Executive of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, said:

Catherine’s entry really stood out as it was creative and she’d really thought through how to engineer the bar in real life. We hope this competition has inspired a host of young people to think about engineering as a future career.

One thing’s for sure, we want to taste that bar!
