"We will have traditional puddings such as sticky toffee, syrup sponge, chocolate sponge, bread and butter pudding and then Eton Mess, a tart selection, entremets, which are mini gateaus, bavarois, macarons, prosecco ice cream and jelly and there will be seven or eight different proseccos available."

The new event is part of wider plans to develop the catering arm of the charitable trust, which funds activities for disadvantaged young people in Norfolk and also includes an upcoming Wizard of Oz afternoon tea and dining in the dark nights.

Mr Baker, assisted in the kitchen by daughter Sophie who is also a chef, said: "We are trying to promote our own events instead of hired ones as all the profits we make go towards running the youth charity.

"We did a Prosecco and Gin Festival recently which went really well and we wanted to find a new idea and this hasn't been done so far in Norwich and is unique.
