Held at Cringleford Church Hall on Sunday, the young competitors, aged between 10 and 15, were asked to bring along a loaf of bread baked at home - plus photos documenting the process.

And then they were put to the test in the showstopper round, as they were tasked with producing a sponge cake, with at least two tiers.

And in the 13 to 15-year-old category, the winner was Millie Hay, with Lily Matthews scoring second place.

Organiser Emma Young said: "All the children asked it we would do it again next year, I'm really happy with how it's gone and the children are so brave."
