A young girl from Orpington has seen her summer sketch turned into a tasty cake after winning a National Trust competition.
The organisation invited visitors to its Chartwell manor house, past home of wartime Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill, to enter the culinary design contest in celebration of the opening of its new 30s-style cafe.
It was won by Rebekah Hose, 6, and she saw her drawing transformed from paper into something much more delicious.
At a special presentation today (April 17) Rebekah saw her colourful imagination realised, and said: “I am really excited to have won.
“I particularly like the different coloured flowers and the black swan on the lake at Chartwell.
“I also like butterflies and made sure they were on my cake”.
Chartwell lies two miles south of Westerham – home of cake maker Sharon Lord, who brought Rebekah’s treat to life.
The creator remarked: “Rebekah’s sketch was a lovely cake to make – very imaginative and colourful.
“I hope she enjoyed eating it as much as she did drawing it.”
Five of the National Trust’s cafés in London and the South East have re-launched this spring.
Chartwell's has been named Landemare Café after Georgina Landemare, who cooked for Churchill and Lady Clementine for over 20 years.
