Kirsten Oswald MP judged the Fairtrade Bake-Off at Newton Mearns Baptist Church, where adults and children competed to see who could create the tastiest cakes.

Kirsten was presented with an amazing selection of beautiful, imaginative cakes, all made with Fairtrade ingredients.

Newton Mearns Baptist Church is committed to supporting Fairtrade, so that those farmers in developing countries are paid fairly for what they produce, making a significant difference to the lives and prospects of many people.

The competition was part of their work during Fairtrade fortnight. The church asked that all entries be submitted along with a list of their Fairtrade ingredients, but otherwise gave bakers a free hand to decide what kind of cake to make.

Kirsten said:“I was very impressed by the skills on display at Newton Mearns Baptist Church. The cakes entered into the competition were amazing. They looked fantastic, with the Fairtrade theme even coming through in the decoration, and they tasted even better.”
