A nationwide competition to find Scotland’s best baker was launched in the Highlands today.
Pupils from Inverness’s Duncan Forbes and Smithton primary schools rolled up their sleeves to take part in a sticky challenge at Harry Gow’s headquarters in Culloden.
They were tasked with putting the finishing touches to Harry’s famous dream rings, decorating empire biscuits and adding the cream and jelly to some strawberry tarts.

The pupils also decorated a cupcake under the watchful eye of competition ambassador Mich Turner MBE and head judge Robert Ross.
Harry Gow Bakery won the Scottish Baker of the Year title in 2019, and the bakery played host to the launch of the 2020 competition today.
The bakery’s David Gow said: “What a joy to have potential bakers of the future doing so well today.”
Voting runs until March 13 online at www.bakeroftheyear.scot or in any participating shops.
