Pupils and staff at a Fenland college copied the hit BBC TV show and took part in a bake off.

Nine Year 8 pupils and nine teachers at Cromwell Community College, Chatteris, were given an hour to bake a cake, decorate it and tidy up after themselves.

Their creations were judged by international award winning Chatteris based cake designer Heather Bicknell, whose daughter goes to the college.

In the pupil section, the winner was Sophie Faunch’s snowman cake, with the runners-up spot going to Maggie Powell’s stained glass biscuits.

Science teacher Paul Ward won the staff category and was named overall champion for his Parmesan baked parsnips.
