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.

"It's great for building the community and I am really pleased that both Richard and Charlie were keen to be involved again."

All proceeds were donated to Friends of Lyng Primary School and Lyng's Wensum Valley nursery school.
