Cake Fest Scotland – Teams of budding architects oversaw the creation of a spectacular 100 square metre, three-dimensional fully edible map of Scotland featuring 70 of our greatest buildings, modelled out of Scottish edible materials. This nationwide celebration of Scotland’s iconic buildings engaged with young and old, architects, bakers professional and nonprofessional with a diverse programme of activities, creating new resources to help individuals and communities shape Scotland in cake!
