The Scottish Home Baking Awards was started by Melanie Andrews who owns and runs three premises in Helensburgh. A proud home baker, Melanie wanted to highlight the best places to visit for real, baked goods - out of the oven and not a packet.
This scheme aims to award the outstanding Homebaking that exists in Scotland and acts as a fantastic online guide to tourists and local people alike to the very best establishments that produce quality Homebaking.
There aren't bad reviews but highlights of places to go for the best in home baking. Visits are made incognito, and the nominations are then fed back to the judging panel.
