A gigantic replica of a village church made almost entirely of gingerbread was the icing on the cake at a culinary cooking challenge.
Pupils and parents from Cawston Primary Academy, between Reepham and Aylsham, rose to the occasion as the school hosted its inaugural Great Cawston Bake-Off.
There were a total of 20 entries across five different categories and the cakes were sold off at the end of the day to raise a total of £190 for the school.
The winner of the showstopper challenge was a gingerbread replica of the historic Cawston Parish Church. Covered in snow-icing, it was created by two families who joined forces to make it.
Josie Baker, chair of the Friends, said: 'It was wonderful to see the whole school community support this event either by making an entry or by joining us to have a cuppa and slice of cake after.'

The gingerbread building was enjoyed by church members during the walking nativity through the village on Sunday December 16.
