A little bakery in Glasgow's East End has been shortlisted for the title of best in Scotland.

Full Circle Bakes is one of 38 bakeries in the country that will compete to be named the winner at the Scottish Baker of the Year Awards, organised by Scottish Bakers.

Other local bakeries nominated in the shortlist include City Market Bakery at City of Glasgow College and Bavarian Bakehouse. 

With 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.

Glasgow Times:

Experts analysed the delicious items based on their appearance, the quality of the bake and taste.

This year’s crop of entries included the ‘best bakes’ from some 60 bakers for the best scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, individual cakes and biscuits as well as French and Danish style pastries and Free-from bread, biscuits and cakes.

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

Scottish Bakers' chief executive Lesley Cameron said: “With nearly 600 products entered, reaching the shortlist of this competition really is something to be very proud of.

"Every day we work hard to give Scottish bakers the chance to shine and showcase their innovation and skills and this competition is a vital part of that.

"So we really do wish all of our shortlisted entrants the best of luck when the prizes are presented in May.”

The winners will be announced at a Gala dinner at the Hilton in Glasgow on Saturday, May 11.
