With the return of the much-loved Great British Bake Off to BBC One we asked readers for pictures of their most bake off worthy cakes.

Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood should not rest on their laurels, we were inundated with cakes covered in glitter, rainbow colours and edible sand.

Tigger, trainers and lego were all created out of cake, along with the inevitable many ‘minions’ and ‘Frozen’ cakes.

Maldon and Burnham readers could easily compete with last year’s Bake Off winner Frances Quinn and her three tier wedding cake, complete with edible confetti.

If anyone wants to send us a slice of their cake creation to sample, hungry Standard reporters would be very happy.
