The Hame Bakery of Peterhead is delighted to announce that their buttery is up for a Scottish Baker of the Year 2015 award.

Over 23,000 customers from across Scotland voted for their favourite bakery products across six categories and on March 31, 170 bakers delivered 600 of their most popular items to be judged.

“We took delivery of hundreds of excellent scones, loaves, savoury items, morning rolls, cakes and biscuits and our judges, led by head judge Robert Ross, have once again done us proud,” commented Scottish Bakers chief executive Alan Clarke.

Speaking tothe Buchanie, Patrick Jackson of The Hame Bakery said: “We are just delighted.

“We have been up for these awards before but with our other products and never our butteries.

“The Aberdeen bakeries think they are the best so we hope we can beat them.

“There is a bit of a competition now!”

Staff at The Hame Bakery have been invited down to the award ceremony but they are unsure if they will manage to make it.

The bakery has also been told their butteries will win either gold, silver or bronze, but they won’t find out until the ceremony.

The final results will remain a closely guarded secret until Saturday, May 9 when TV judge and celebrity cake-designer Mich Turner will announce the winners and also crown the Scottish Baker of the Year 2015, a crown currently held by Ashers of Nairn.
