Four Blues stars have been cooking up a comical storm to help promote Red Nose Day on Friday 15 March.

Steven Caldwell, Wade Elliott, Curtis Davies and Chris Burke swapped playing kits for aprons at The Thistle Hotel in Birmingham.

And the budding-bakers' culinary creations came in the form of red nose-themed cupcakes.

Davies and Burke teamed up to take on Caldwell and Elliott in a bake off judged by a member of The Thistle's kitchen staff.

As part of this year's Red Nose Day, the public are being encouraged to raise dough in the kitchen with their own bake off and sell cupcakes to help boost the Comic Relief coffers. You can download your own bake off kit through the Red Nose Day website here.

The money raised is used to transform the lives of those less fortunate both here in the UK and in Africa.

After a tense wait, it was the pairing of Davies and Burke who were eventually crowned winners of the big Blues bake off with their cherry-topped delights.
