DUNFERMLINE-based Scottish Bakers are making the final preparations today to take delivery of some 850 of the nation’s best morning rolls, scones, individual cakes, savouries, biscuits, breads and new category, celebration cakes for a judging day like no other.

The tasty treats will be scored on appearance, freshness and taste by a panel of some 50 industry experts. The aim is to choose one ultimate winner from each category, as well as the Manufacturer of the Year and Unsung Hero of the year. The winner of each product category will go forward to be considered for the ultimate crown – Scottish Baker of the Year 2018.

The Scottish Baker of the Year Awards – which features couture cake queen, Mich Turner MBE, as its ambassador – is the brainchild of Scottish Bakers, the trade association for bakers in Scotland who decided to search for the best baker in the land in 2012.

The competition celebrates our love of a tasty treat from our local baker and aims to crown just one hard working bakery Scottish Baker of the Year.

Scottish Bakers asked customers across Scotland to vote for their favourite bakery items in the following categories: morning roll, scone, individual cake, savoury, biscuit, bread and new category, celebration cake.

And the overall winner will be crowned Scottish Baker of the Year!

“This is my first year with Scottish Bakers and I am told I am in for a real treat when all the products are displayed for judging by some of Scotland’s leading bakery figures, and I cannot wait! To see the best of our sector in one place at one time is going to be impressive to say the least,” says Scottish Bakers’ chief executive, Alasdair Smith.

“This competition is based on real votes from real customers so it really is a huge honour to get through to the judging day stage and I wish all our entrants who have come this far well on the day.”

And the winner will be announced at a glittering Gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow on Saturday 5th May 2018.
