Food lovers had a cracking time at Bakewell Baking Festival.

She also enjoyed a Bakewell pudding in its spiritual home.

Nadiya said: “It was my first ever visit to Bakewell and I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the festival, sharing some of my recipes and sampling the legendary Bakewell pudding.”

This year Nadiya had the honour of baking a cake for the Queen’s 90th birthday.

She said: “It was an amazing opportunity.

“I didn’t have a brief apart from not making a fruit cake so I opted for an orange drizzle.”

Many other baking stars – including Edd Kimber, the first winner of Great British Bake Off – also attended the weekend festival.

The event was held at Bakewell Showground and attracted thousands of visitors from right across the country.

As well as baking, the festival also celebrated all things vintage and featured cabaret and comedy nights – as well as a custard pie fight!
