THE Kandy Bar could be heading for another top prize at the Scottish Baker Awards 2018.

Scottish Bakers, the association that represents bakers across the country, has announced who is on the shortlist.

And the Kandy Bar, which has bakeries in Saltcoats, Kilwinning and West Kilbride, is on the shortlist.

Stephen McAllister, owner of the Kandy Bar, said: “We are delighted to have made it to the shortlist of the Scottish Baker of the Year competition this year.

“It’s great to know that the professional judges liked our products as much as the customers who voted for us do. We can’t wait to hear the final results in May.”

On March 28 in Dunfermline, Scottish Bakers took delivery of some 850 of the nation’s best morning rolls, scones, individual cakes, savouries, biscuits, breads and new category, celebration cakes, for judging.

The results will be out on May 5
