There were plenty of cakes to go around at North Walsham's St Nicholas House School, which held a baking contest as part of its annual summer fete.

The competition, open to all children as well as their friends and family, involved baking either one large cake or six cupcakes and was judged by the Reverend Paul Cubitt, vicar of St Nicholas Church.

Rev Cubitt said: 'As a vicar you get asked to do a lot of tricky things - this was amongst the hardest as the standard was so high.

'It really was a difficult decision especially in the older age range where there was fierce competition in the large cake section.'

Ella Fraser, eight, was named the overall winner for her triple-layered, rainbow Victoria sponge called 'Fairy Delight'.

Other rosettes were awarded to Myrtle Gleeson, 10, for her marbled chocolate ring cake, Molly Dewing, eight, for her vanilla cupcakes, Ivy Bird, two, Otto Gleeson, four, and Isabelle Bird, six.
