An Angus business has secured a spot on the shortlist of the prestigious Scottish Baker of the Year Awards.

Keptie Bakery Ltd made it to the shortlist following the annual judging day held recently in Dunfermline.

With Scottish bakers each asked to put forward up to 12 of their star products to be taste tested by 50 industry experts, 580 products were delivered for the judges to assess for appearance, the quality of the bake and taste so to be shortlisted is quite some feat.

The ultimate prize, of course, is to be crowned Scottish Baker of the Year.
