Cambs Fire and Rescue has got BBC British Bake Off fever and launched their version of the hit show, with workers taking it in turns to wow with their creations.
The first star baker is ICT support technician Rudy, who has worked at Cambs Fire for nearly two years and as a keen baker outside of work.
She thrilled co-workers with her delectable Black Forest Gateau, inspired by a BBC Good Food online recipe.
Rudy said: “I found that patience is the key with this recipe. Better to wait until the ganache has fully cooled before pouring it onto the cream as it just melts everywhere - I’m not sure how they are going to do it in such a short timeframe on the show!”
The light-hearted competition also has a serious propose - raising awareness of dangers of fires in the kitchen. To combat this, the fire service has made a list of some top tips to stay safe.
