It has taken a few weeks to bake and decorate but this special cake is now ready to take pride of place at a south Norfolk village's celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday.
The fruit cake was baked in Wacton, near Long Stratton, by Caroline Squires and then decorated using sugar craft by Bernice Allen and Rene Rowson.
It will be on display at Wacton Parish Council's party for the Queen on Saturday, May 14 before it is dished out for the guests to enjoy.
Mrs Allen said: 'We started in April and have just finished it. We made six crowns out of sugar craft but only one has survived. The
sugar crafting took us a couple of days.'

The party will take place between 7pm and 11pm at the village green and there will be live music, food tents, a licensed bar and children's play area.
Rita Day, who has helped to organise the event, said: 'The Queen is only ever going to be 90 once. You have to go a long way to see somebody at 90 who does what our Queen does.
