Bakers showed off their skills in a head to head contest at the weekend.

Kye Paige baked the best children’s cake and Kirsty Smithy won the under 16’s competition with her Victoria Sponge.

The, aptly-named, Ruth Baker claimed first prize in the open age category with her flower pot cake.

All proceeds from the event held at Waltham Abbey Town Hall on Saturday went to Christian Aid to mark the start of Christian Aid week.
