He said: “I am so very proud of our bakery and skilled staff, it’s so nice to get some well deserved recognition and as this is the second year in a row that we have won major awards in the Celebration Cake category, we couldn’t be happier.”

The competition is organised by Scottish Bakers, which supports and protects the interests of Scotland's bakery trade, and it was once again hotly contested with bakers each asked to put forward up to 12 of their star products to be taste tested by 50 industry experts.

Mich Turner, Scottish Baker of the Year ambassador and star baker, said: “With 630 products from 70 bakers in the running, each and every one of which was assessed for appearance, the quality of the bake and taste, they can be rightly proud of their win.”

Ian McGhee, president of Scottish Bakers, added: “It was great to see the best iconic Scottish bakes entered alongside some fantastic new innovation on show, a real celebration of our fantastic sector.”
