Cousins Nicole Mittmann and Patrick Mittmann have won the fourth German Championship of Bakers with a stunning display of products.

Competing against three other pairs of contestants, the Mittmanns produced elaborate breads and pastries, and an impressive show piece inspired by the competition’s ‘Europe’ theme.

The other participants were:

  • Thomas Schmitt and Sebastian Brücklmaier from Munich
  • Katharina Regele and Florian Siegel from Abtsgmünd-Laubach and Oftersheim
  • Markus Steinleitner and Gerd Distler from Straubing and Schwabach

The winners will now join the German national bakery team.

"It was really a tough head-to-head race and all the teams did a fantastic job, but in the end the pair was able to deliver consistent performance at the highest level, across all product groups," said team principal Wolfgang Schäfer summing up the result.
