Taking place at the inaugural Fabulous Food Fest in North Berwick this August, the Friday 29th July deadline for Cake Off applicants is fast approaching.

Accomplished bakers, Verity Sinclair and Gareth Glen, will select 10 lucky applicants to go forward into the heats on Tuesday 9th August.

Contestants will be challenged to make their tastiest vegetable cake, be it carrot, beetroot, courgette or perhaps something more unusual, and are encouraged to be as creative as they like.

A winner from each heat will go through to the final, where they wll be expected to create their biggest, best, fanciest or quirkiest cake in an attempt to win the first ever Cake Off crown and a prize of £250.

Gillian Reith, Co-Founder of Three Sisters Bake, said: "Baking just goes from strength to strength, and with Great British Bake Off back on our screens next month, there isn’t a better time to test your baking skills.

"Past finalists prove there is a wealth of talent within Scotland’s baking industry, so we can’t wait to see what North Berwick’s finest brings to the table."

North Berwick Cake Off is part of Fabulous Food Fest which celebrates the range of fantastic produce and producers that Scotland has to offer and will run from the 8th until the 14th August.

Caroline Vevers, Founder of Fabulous Food Fest said: “Having lived in many places around the world I’ve sampled some great food but for me Scotland has one of the best larders in the world. And as a North Berwick resident, born and raised,
