After being away for a little while, The Scottish Baking Awards are returning with a bang!

The return of the Scottish Baking Awards will be good news for many. Open to everyone in the UK, not many baking events make their way up north, and so Melanie Andrews MBE is bringing the baking buzz back to Scotland. The Awards will return on September 5th 2020, but entries are already open to the public (UK and Ireland)! Taking place at the Luxury 5 Star hotel Mar Hall, just outside Glasgow, there is no other awards show open to entries of this type in Scotland.
