Budding chefs at Blandford have been putting their baking skills to the test all in the name of raising money for forces charities.

Individual and team entries were welcome for the hotly contested Great Blandford Bake Off competition.

Those taking part could enter their glorious gateaus in one of four categories - Signature Bake, Savoury Bake, Showstopper and Junior Baker.

All of the categories had entries from staff and family members from across the Garrison.

The competition was the brainchild of now full-time Reservist SSgt Paddy Ensor.

He and a team from Blandford Camp are raising money for ABF - The Soldiers' Charity.

The cake and savoury contenders were judged by the Garrison Commander Colonel Andrew Percival and the Royal Corps of Signals Corps Colonel, Jason Gunning.

Charlotte Pateman's poppy themed cake, 'In Flanders Field' was judged unanimously as the overall winner.

One of your five a day?

All the cakes and savoury creations were then sliced up and sold across Blandford Camp to ultimately raise money for ABF The Soldiers' Charity.

They're also taking part in the Cateran Yomp, where teams of 3-6 people battle through 54 miles in 24 hours across the rugged terrain of the Scottish wilderness.

The money raised from the sale helped the team reach the minimum amount needed to take part in the Cateran Yomp for the Forces' charity in June.
