There will be categories for the best morning roll, loaf, scone and individual cake. There is also a new category for the best biscuit.

A spokesperson from Harry Gow, the bakery which won the competition in 2012, said, “We were extremely pleased to be recognised as the first ever winner of the competition and to be crowned Scotland’s best baker. We have an ethos that we must make everything ourselves from scratch and this, along with our consistently high product quality, was recognised by the judges.

“Since winning our business has gone from strength to strength and we have been able to share our success with all of our customers by continuing to provide the best baked goods day in and day out,” they added.

Paul Hollywood, a TV judge and artisan baker who will be a compere at the awards, commented, “I am delighted to once again be involved in this event. As a professional baker with strong roots in Scotland, 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.”
