Two Baking Industry Awards 2005 winners and one finalist have been made members of the Incorporation of Bakers of Glasgow, in recognition of their achievement at the awards, organised by British Baker.
Celebration Cake Maker of the Year Debra Cunningham and Student Baker of the Year Andrew Fairley, as well as highly commended Daniel Smith, received the honour at Glasgow Trades House last month. Before collecting the honour from the Deacon, Norrie Fyfe, they were granted Freeman Citizenship of the city of Glasgow, which is necessary to become a member of the Incorporation.
Ms Cunningham is head of the cake decorating department at 44-shop Skeltons Bakery based in Hull. Andrew Fairley and Daniel Smith are both from Greggs North East.
The Incorporation is part of the Glasgow Trades House, set up over 400 years ago to look after workers and their families involved in 14 major crafts.
