The competition at the Fox in Lyng is hosted over a 12-week period and owner Victoria Hunt said: "We were so thrilled with the public support last year and the customers asked us to hold the bake-off again, so we brought it back for a second year.

"More people entered the weekly rounds this time and the competition really did raise the standards.
