A patisserie set schoolchildren the daunting challenge of inventing a new style of bread.
Tiptree Patisserie set the task for Year 5 and 6 pupils at Stoke by Nayland Primary, with professional bakers Daren McGrath and Chloe Alderton taste-testing their creations on Thursday.
The students have been researching how to make bread and its history as part of a design and technology project.
Pupil Maisie was awarded first place with her loaf of bread, with fellow pupil Lizzie coming second.
The pair were presented with some goody bags from Tiptree Patisserie as an award.

"We are thankful that they have been able to do this, despite the restrictions."
Hannah, a pupil at the school, said before the bakers arrived: "It was really fun to make the bread and I am excited and a bit nervous."
Jacob also said he was excited and could not wait to "see what they think of my bread and if the flavours have worked".
"I am scared, happy and excited," said Freya ahead of the taste-testing.
