A great day was had at the Perth College Bake-Off for 8 hopeful students . We picked our 3 Finalists to go through to the Awards in Mar Hall and what a Three we have , Anna ,Willow and Derek will be competing against 2 other Finalists Schools out of a possible 8 this year . They were coached and mentored by Gleneagles Patisserie Chef Neil Mugg and they have certainly done him proud.  All the cakes were exceptional on the day but we can only take three through from each school . All the best of luck to our Finalists and we will see you at Mar Hall in September.

First of many School Bake-Offs for 2014

A fabulous and heart warming day at North East College Scotland today for the 1st in many Young student Bake-Offs . This was a class with a difference ! The students in this particular class have to overcome many challenges on a daily basis not least to attempt to enter into a Baking competition of our standards - but they did . This is all thanks to a dedicated and inspirational teacher by the name of David Paterson who inspires ,motivates and above all believes in his students.  We have picked 3 Finalists from Aberdeen College who will join our remaining 3 Finalists from each of our 6 entered Schools. So much is printed nowadays about the " Best " of this and the "Best " of that, but what about the ones that try and take part !! This is an inspirational class and a story we could all learn from. Glad to have experienced this 1st Bake-off today with 1st class students. In the words of one student today - Melanie its not about the winning ,but the taking part !!
