Scotland in Gingerbread

Dec 23, 2013 by

During the holiday season, one of the most popular decorating mediums is gingerbread, a tricky, but tasty substance that dessert artisans wield with joie de vivre.  Scotland and Scottish life are always popular themes in gingerbread art and architecture.   Here are a few fantastic and fantastical Scottish gingerbread creations to rouse your inner gingerbread Celt…

Lovingly decorated by a young girl fascinated with the Katie Morag stories set on a magical Scottish  island, this sweet wee croft comes with Hielan coos, sheep and lovely tartan curtains. The roses are a reference to Robert Burns’ famous song,  My Love is Like a Red, Red Rose.
Find out more about Katie Morag and her creator, Mairi Hedderwick,  by clicking HERE.

Two of the most famous Scottish icons–Urquhart Castle and Loch Ness–come to gingerbread life in this fun display.  Click HERE to see the other side of Urquhart, where dwells the the dreaded gingerbread beastie known as Nessie.

Beautiful Saint Andrew’s Cathedral in Glasgow gets the white Christmas treatment with a liberal dusting of sugar snow.  The stained glass windows were made from melted colored sugar crystals which were “poured” into the gingerbread windows.  Read the creator’s comments about her ambitious first try at gingerbread art HERE:

Everyone knows that J. K. Rowling’s magical world of witches, wizards and Hogwarts is hidden somewhere in Scotland. Unlike the Grimm Brothers tale of a gingerbread house with an evil witch, the witch at this gingerbread Hogwarts in the woods is much more likely to welcome you than eat you.

Back in 2003,  Abercrombie and Fitch commissioned this Scottish castle, with towers and turrets,  for their Christmas catalog.  The little Scottish Terriers below, created by the same designer, would no doubt  be right at home here.

Last, but certainly not least are the KILTS, the emblem of Scottish warriors, past and present.  What Christmas is complete without braw Scotsmen men in kilts?   None, I say!  These gingerbread gents can be made to order in your clan’s tartan or you can just order a batch of assorted Scottish  men in kilts.  Dreams really do come true…
