Delicious cakes that would impress Mary Berry were whipped up for a ‘barking bake off’ in aid of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Margo Harrison, leader of the charity’s Bury St Edmunds group, organised the culinary contest at Greene King Social Club, which attracted 32 cakes baked by friends, colleagues, neighbours, St Mary’s Guides and the local deaf centre.

Their efforts were judged by the Mayor of St Edmundsbury Cllr Patrick Chung; Mike Faers, of food innovations company FIS and Julie Atkin, who has her own cookery company.

There were three categories - children up to 13 years, a sponge cake or tray bake and anything with fruit or veg - with first, second and third winners. A chocolate cake was also commended a prize given to the youngest contestant.

Margo, who is profoundly deaf and has her own hearing dog Pebbles, said the event raised about £430.

Any groups who would like her to talk on behalf of the charity can email margo.sharrison@btinternet.com
