The first All-Ireland CEIST Schools Bake-Off took place on 27 March in Ardscoil na Tríonóide, Athy. The event was launched within the 110 Catholic Education An Irish Schools Trust (CEIST) around the country.

With tough competition among the students, seven contestants were narrowed down to compete head-to-head at the grand final in Athy. Catherine Leyden from Odlums judged the entries on the day. The cakes each student baked on the day represented the theme of talent – either their own or that of their school or local community.
