Scotland’s famous baking sisterhood, Three Sisters Bake, has secured a primetime TV show on BBC1.
Nichola Reith, part of the Three Sisters Bake, with three cafes and wedding cake business, is now fronting Flour Power.
The 10-part baking show will air on Saturday mornings at 11am on BBC 1.

The prime Saturday morning slot, with an estimated 1 million viewers, was previously home to a Mary Berry baking programme.
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 Reith, Three Sisters Bake, 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 12th October 2019 at 11am for 10 weeks.
Three Sisters Bake established their first café in Quarriers Village in 2011. The sisters recently opened Cake Bar on Great Western Road in Glasgow. The new take-away and sweet treat destination is already known as the most instagrammable café in Glasgow, complete with neon signs and flower installations and of course, cake. Three Sisters Bake also has a countryside café in Killearn and a regular pop up at Platform at Argyle Street Arches.
