Bakery customers throughout Scotland have had their say and today the experts’ put their choices to the test at the much anticipated Scottish Baker of the Year Judging Day in Dunfermline.

With over 8000 customer votes and in excess of 30,000 individual products votes, for goods baked by the best bakers in the country, the ‘steak pies’ are high.

This years’ bumper crop of entries includes a wide range of ‘brilliant bakes’ with accolades on offer for the best pies, scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits as well as the ultimate prize, to be crowned Scottish Baker of the Year.

"Every day in Scotland we enjoy a buttery for breakfast, a sandwich made from a fresh loaf for lunch, afternoon tea with mouth-watering cakes and a fresh piping hot pie for supper. But the bakers who carefully make the pies, scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits sold in Scotland every day are the hidden gem of our economy and our culture” says Alasdair Smith of Scottish Bakers who organise the competition, now in its 8th

“So we are delighted to once again be giving Scottish Bakers the chance to shine and showcase their skills!” he continued.

The winner will be announced at a glittering Gala dinner at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow on Saturday 8th June 2019.
