They’ve done it again.
The team at Rolling Pin Pie & Cake Shop has taken out a host of awards in the recent Victorian Baking Show.
The team won 1st place in the Plain Pie, Seafood Pie, Chicken Pie and Small Fruit Flan categories. They also took out 2nd place in the Pastie and 3rd place for another of their chicken pies in the Chicken Pie categories.
The iconic Ocean Grove bakery, which also has shops in Leopold and Queenscliff, has consistently been winning awards for its products at a state and national level for years.
“We’re committed to making a quality product,” Rolling Pin’s Nathan Williams told the Voice.
“Every year it just motivates us to try that bit harder and go that bit better. We just want to make people happy.”
Mr Williams said all the bakers were on hand to accept the awards.
“What was great at this competition was that we had the whole baking team there,” he said.
“We had everyone there and when the award was announced, they got to go up and accept them in front of their peers.”
Pastry cook Caitlin Houston said it was a thrill to be at the awards.
“It was nice to have that recognition of the hard work that we do,” she said.
“It is a family business and we all feel part of the family and we’re a tight knit group. It’s really great to know that all the hard work is not for nothing.”
