A prosecco-soaked creation with white chocolate buttercream and homemade cherry jam has won a Wymondham woman top honours in a Victoria Sponge Bake Off contest.

Wednesday Batchelor, who runs Unicorn Cakery and Delectables, picked up two tickets to Cake International, the world's biggest cake decoration event in Birmingham, and a bag of goodies for her victory in the competition, which was run by South Norfolk Council.

She said she was delighted with the win. She said: 'It was a great opportunity to get my name out there and good fun too.

'It was lovely to see everyone enjoying my baking, I don't think there was much cake left after the judging.

'It was fantastic to win.'

The competition was open to all businesses in the district that have been awarded four- or five-star hygiene ratings by the council.

Michael Edney, South Norfolk Council's deputy leader, said: 'Well done Wednesday, it was a very tasty cake.
