Talented bakers have shown off their colourful and tasty creations at the first charity heat of the Great Suffolk Bake Off contest at Lowestoft College.
On Saturday contestants battled it out for the title of best baker all in aid of the St Elizabeth Hospice which is expanding services in the Waveney and Great Yarmouth areas.
The four bakers - Adele Deady, 18 of Lowestoft; Ruth Goldsmith, 26, of Wangford; Megan Nicholas, 28, of Pakfield and Lara Gosling, 22 from Debenham - were judged by restaurant owner Regis Crepy, Jane Sago, of the Suffolk Federation of Women’s Institutes, and Penny Arbuthnot, of Genesis PR, which has organised the fund-raising competition for free.
The entrants had to have a Suffolk theme and the winner was Ruth’s cake which was in the shape of a Southwold beach hut.
She said: “I am very pleased to win.” She will now compete at the grand final at Ipswich on March 16.
About £500 will be raised for the charity from the competition. For information on heats go to www.greatsuffolkbakeoff.co.uk
