On 25 February, McGhee’s Bakery in Glasgow will play host to the launch of the 2016 Scottish Bakery of the Year competition.
McGhee’s Bakery is the current champion of the competition, which is voted for by consumers across the country. As well as searching for Scotland’s Bakery of the Year, the search is on for the country’s best morning roll, scone, savoury, bread, individual cake and biscuit.
As part of the launch, McGhee’s will host a charity event from 11am to 12.30pm on 25 February, which will feature Scottish celebrities competing to show their bakery brilliance.
Their efforts will be overseen by reigning champion Gordon McGhee and couture cake queen Mich Turner, the Scottish Baker of the Year ambassador.
Scottish Bakers, the trade association for bakers in Scotland, founded the competition in 2012. Turner will also be compering the awards, which will be presented in May.
Turner said: “I am delighted to once again be involved in this event. As a professional cake-designer, I have been really impressed by the quality and creativity Scottish bakers are demonstrating and I look forward to being surprised and delighted again this year.”
