Nichola Reith from Scotland’s baking sisterhood, Three Sisters Bake, has secured a primetime TV show on BBC1.

The 10-part baking TV show titled Flour Power will air on Saturday mornings at 11am on BBC 1 – the slot that was previously home to Mary Berry’s baking programme, and has an estimated 1 million viewers.

Flour Power will see workmates across Scotland battle for the cake-making crown with Nichola Reith providing baking guidance and judging the best efforts.

Nichola said: “Being a TV baking judge has been an amazing and totally surreal experience, for this pipe dream to become a reality has been almost too good to be true.

“Baking is in my blood and I love nothing more than trying out creations other people have made. I was bowled over by the standard of baking from some of the contestants.

“It was a true pinch-me moment when we found out the show would be aired on a primetime TV slot on BBC 1 on Saturday mornings.”

Flour Power aired originally on BBC Scotland in June 2019; it will now be shown on BBC 1 from Saturday 12 October at 11am for 10 weeks.

Three Sisters Bake established their first café in Quarriers Village in 2011, and they recently opened Cake Bar at 401 Great Western Road  in Glasgow’s west end.

The take-away and dessert destination, Cake Bar from Three Sisters Bake, has become an Instagram lovers dream thanks to its decoration which includes neon signs, flower installations and, of course, picture perfect cakes. 

Speaking at the time of opening Cake Bar, Gillian Reith said: “Finally we are in Glasgow and we couldn’t be happier to be launching our latest sweet treat offering in the city!

“We’ve been searching for the right location to launch Cake Bar for a long time so we couldn’t be more delighted to have found the ideal spot on the busiest road in Glasgow.

“We see Cake Bar as the unruly childish streak of the Three Sisters Bake brand – it’s all about having fun.

Three Sisters Bake also has a countryside café in Killearn and a regular pop up at Platform at Argyle Street Arches.
