The Old Bailey has shown its sweeter side with a charity bake off on a British theme, from fish and chips to Paddington Bear and Harry Potter.
Judges and their families, barristers and court staff swapped their traditional robes for aprons and produced an array of elaborately decorated cakes.
Second and third places went to a court clerk for her coronation cake and the daughter of a judge for her vegan Victoria sponge.
Competitors and supporters were serenaded by the Old Bailey Choir with food-related numbers by Gilbert and Sullivan and John Rutter.
Judge Lucraft said: “Once the judging was finished the cakes were auctioned.
“I am grateful to all those who bought cakes and donated money in support of this important cause.”
