Glasgow and Cumbernauld firms up for Scottish Baker of the Year Awards

Bavarian Bakehouse of Cumbernauld and City Market Bakery in the City of Glasgow College Campus have been shortlisted for the Scottish Baker of the Year Awards.

The event saw 580 products from 60 bakers submitted for taste tests by 50 industry judges.

Each baker was encouraged to showcase up to 12 of their star products from a broad range of categories including scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits, as well as French and Danish style pastries.

To make the shortlist, judges had to be impressed by the appearance, the quality of the bake, and taste.

Lesley Cameron, chief executive of Scottish Bakers, who organised the competition, said: “With nearly 600 products entered, reaching the shortlist of this competition really is something to be very proud of.

“Every day we work hard to give Scottish bakers the chance to shine and showcase their innovation and skills and this competition is a vital part of that.

“So we really do wish all of our shortlisted entrants the best of luck when the prizes are presented in May.”

The winners will be revealed at a glamorous gala dinner at the Hilton in Glasgow on Saturday, May 11.
