Titanic Champion

A massive congratulations to Megan Ross who was crowned the 

Nomadic’s Petit Pâtisserie Chef after designing SS Nomadic's anniversary cake.


Megan used striking colours to illustrate SS Nomadic’s industrial maritime history from its launch 105 years ago.


She also won the opportunity for her class to visit the last remaining White Star Line vessel and the biggest Titanic artefact in the world, and celebrate the anniversary on board yesterday.


Siobhan McCartney, Titanic Belfast’s Learning and Outreach Manager, said: "Megan’s cake was the outright winner of the competition.

"Her cake design used striking colours to illustrate SS Nomadic’s industrial maritime history, from its launch 105 years ago, with a career spanning from serving Titanic, WW1 and WW11, to tendering celebrities such as Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor to its role today as a visitor attraction and a learning facility.

"The 31st May marks a day of great historical significance for SS Nomadic. Originally over 100,000 people gathered in Belfast, from as far as America, to mark the occasion when it alongside, its sister ship Traffic and RMS Olympic left Belfast and RMS Titanic was launched.

"Last year, it was reunited with Titanic Belfast and this year it is fully open as a learning space. It was a pleasure to have the pupils from Kings Park Primary on board to celebrate."
