Celebrating Burns Night With A Sweet Tooth!

It's Burns Night here in Scotland this Friday, the day every year when we celebrate the life and work of Scotlands famous son, Robert Burns! One of the most important aspects of this celebration has to be food!! The Burns Supper does, of course, include the Haggis but there are other traditional elements to the meal too and one of these is the Cranachan, the ingredients for which include whipped cream, raspberries, oatmeal and even a drop of whiskey if you wish!! This particular Scottish Cranachan was a recent commission which, along with the shortbread garnished with Scottish Heather has gone off to celebrate January 25th in its new home but the plate of Homebaked Scottish Shortbread on the right of the first photograph has just been added to our Etsy store!
