Judging Day for Scottish Baker of the Year 2017

By Emma @glasgowfoodie

If you have ever wondered what 850 scones, loaves, savouries, cakes, morning rolls and biscuits all in one room looks like then I'm your woman to ask!

I joined 55 other judges today (22nd March) to help find the best bakery products in Scotland.

11,000 bakery customers up and down the land voted for their favourite bakery items and 850 items we're judged today. The final shortlist has been decided but won't be revealed until awards night in May.

The Scottish Baker of the Year Awards were started six years ago by Scottish Bakers.

"With thousands upon thousands of pies, scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits sold in Scotland every day, our artisan bakers work hard to keep us all going" says Scottish Bakers' Alan Clarke.

"This competition is based on real votes from real customers and every vote really has counted in drawing up the list of products invited through to the professional judging stage - your local baker could take the title!"

The competition will be awarding the best Scone, Bread, Savoury, Individual Cake, Morning Roll and Biscuit.

This year also sees the introduction of a new business category - the Bakery Café of the Year Award. The winner of this new category will then compete alongside the winners of the Craft Baker, Retail Craft Baker and Wholesale Baker of the Year, for the title of Scottish Baker of the Year 2017/18.

I'll get the winners online as soon as they are released, good luck to all entries!
