The event raised £94 towards the residential parks' charity pot, which will go to a local good cause.

Peter Beauchamp, from the residents' association, said more than 20 cakes were entered including everything for chocolate to Victoria sponge. Lorraine Wasylenko, the owner of Bailey's sandwich and coffee shop in Attleborough, judged the contest along with an assistant, sampling each cake before declaring Linda Gaskin the winner.

Ms Gaskin won a chocolate orange cake for her victory.

Dot Buckle and Reg Loveday came in second and third, respectively.

The bake-off was part of a series of charity events - including quiz nights - at the residential park, off Norwich Road, which is designed for the retired and semi-retired.
