Media release: Primary pupils impress the bakery pros to mark the launch of the Scottish Baker of the Year competition 2019/20


SCOTTISH Baker of the Year 2018/9, John Gall – of Kilmarnock-based Brownings the Bakers – played host this week to couture cake queen, Mich Turner MBE, to mark the launch of the 2019 search for the Scottish Baker of the Year.

Pupils from Kilmarnock-based Onthank and Galston Primary Schools joined Nicola Gall and Wendy Short in a sticky challenge to jam and ice Empire Biscuits, apply fondant to Strawberry Tarts – using a handmade piping bag – and apply cream filling to Cream Yum Yums and Donuts.

And the ‘icing on the cake’, the Mich Turner technical challenge, was to buttercream a cupcake to her exacting standards!
