Who's been lockdown baking?

Lots of you, by the looks of it! Over lockdown we started bagging flour to sell and you guys went crazy for home baking, buying over 5,000 bags of flour and 1,000 bags of yeast. But what have you been baking? We'd love to know!

With school kids doing home learning, lots of parents took to the kitchen to get their kids clued up on recipes, perfecting their skills in measuring, accuracy and patience! Two schools even decide to test their pupils, and so we were called upon to judge both the Ceres and Balmullo Primary School Bake-Off competitions. It was certainly a tough decision in both competitions, and we definitely wish we could have tasted the bakes as they looked so delicious. The future of baking in Fife is in safe hands...

Just look at these! We were amazed to see such skills from all the youngsters who entered both Primary School competitions, with over 70 entries across the two. And we definitely didn't expect to see Viennese fingers or focaccia artwork - what talent on display, and a huge well done to the winners: Anya Raval, Prisca Rochester and Olivia MacNaughton from Ceres Primary and Cameron and Lewis Dickson, Tiago Wiff-Marshall and Annabel Barclay from Balmullo Primary.
