The Great British Bake Off came to Soham Village College as children held their own competition in aid of charity.
Raising money for Sport Relief, the young bakers brought their creations in to be sold for the charity.
It took just a few minutes for the left over cakes, which were sold on Thursday (March 22) at break time, to sell out.
“We have a number of keen bakers in the younger year groups who feel that the curriculum is very savoury based so wanted to showcase their love of baking outside of the classroom,” said Jocelyn Whittle, of the college.
“The students either prepared their cakes at home and decorated them in school or spent two lunch times cooking and decorating here ready for judging.
“The judge was Mr Peacock from Peacock’s Tearoom in Ely.
“Mr Peacock and the teaching staff were very impressed with the creativity and enthusiasm shown.
