Making Shortbread was expensive and reserved as a luxury for special occasions such as Christmas and Hogmanay or weddings. In Shetland, there is a tradition to make a specially decorated shortbread cake that is broken on the head of the bride as she enters her new home.
Oat Cakes have a longer history in Scotland and date right back to before the Roman conquest of Britain.
