Two of our favourite things have combined today, The Only Way Is Essex cast and lots of cake!

Our Essex faves unleashed their inner Mary Berry with an Essex Bake Off today (14 July). Ferne McCann shared a mouthwatering snap of herself and some of the TOWIE gang proudly brandishing their impressive creations.

Because this was an Essex Bake Off, everyone went all out with the cake decorations! Chloe Sims went for an ultra girly design, vajazzling her cake with pink jewel effect sweets. Lydia Bright created delicate cupcakes whilst her mum Debbie Douglas made a very professional looking pastel green number. Carol Wright did something dreamy with strawberries and cream, which is always a winner.

Safe to say we're gutted about our lack of invite to the tasting!

Being a total foodie, Ferne was never going to opt for a classic Victoria Sponge. Instead the food and fashion blogger took the opportunity to introduce the clan to a bit of healthy baking, whipping up a "Lemon Verbena & Chia Seeds Loaf."

Never heard of it? Well Lemon Verbena is a lemony flavoured plant, so the leaves give a fab flavour when all chopped up and blended into bread or cakes. Chia seeds are super healthy, vitamin loaded seeds which make a great egg substitute FYI.

There was no sign of James Argent's own offering, instead he stood poised with a cake slice to tuck into the Bake Off offerings. Well someone has to take on the role of Paul Hollywood!
