The Great Scottish Bake Off

The staff and residents of a number of our Scottish Homes descended on Marchglen this week as the home hosted the much-anticipated ‘Great Scottish Bake Off.’

There was a fantastic turnout for the day with staff, residents, family and friends all supporting their entries. The judges tasked with picking the winners included Alva Academy`s home economics teacher, four of her pupils and a chef from Stirling University. After the cakes were judged, prizes were awarded to each of the winners before the long awaited sampling could take place.

The deserving winners of each category were:

Residents’ category
1st    Marchglen’s Avondhu House with their courgette cakes
2nd   Beechwood Park ‘upstairs’ with their cheesecake
3rd    Forth Bay with their truffles

Family & Friends category
1st    Isobel – Beechwood Park
2nd   Dorothy – Beechwood Park
3rd   Cheryl – Marchglen

Staff category
1st    Debbie – Beechwood Park

Located at the heart of Fishcross and enjoying wonderful views across the Ochil Hills, Marchglen is a purpose built care home providing a range of specialist care across four dedicated houses.
