A Middleham cake maker has won gold with her bake inspired by Yorkshire life.

She said: “I was very pleased to have won gold with my little sheepy I actually named Alfie.

“I have been living in Middleham for past ten years and I was very proud that my piece inspired by my surrounding stood out amongst some amazing creations.”

The cake is made entirely from chocolate cake cover in sugar paste.

“I have received a great feedback from judges who fell in love with him and just wanted to pick him up and cuddle him,” said Maya.
