A cake competition has been held in aid of a charity set up by Cumbrian teenager, Alice Pyne.

The winner of the Lakeland Cake of the Year contest was crowned at the Briery Wood Hotel in Windermere.

The charity, Alice's Escapes, gives seriously ill children holidays in the Lake District.

The 17-year-old from Ulverston made headlines around the world when she set up a 'bucket list' of things she wanted to do before she died in January 2013.

The competition was won by baker Elliot Johnson, who spent around 50 hours making his cake.
