When approached with the idea of tartan cookies for a Scottish tartan-themed anniversary party, I of course said, "Sure, I think we can do that!" Thus began my tartan education. Despite the fact that both and Andrew and I have Scottish roots, neither of us knew that there were so many different tartans out there, and with so many stories behind each one. Every Scottish clan has its own tartan, and most have very long and interesting histories. There are many websites devoted to categorizing and classifying tartans, which made it easy for us to find some clear pictures of the tartans belonging to the surnames we were provided with for the tartan cookie favours. After experimenting with several piping tips and layers of icing, I happily discovered that thankfully, icing tartan turns out much better than my attempts at sketching the tartans during the planning process. So any of you with Scottish ancestery who are looking to incorporate a little family history in your special events, take note! The Steveston Cookie Company can hereby create your clan tartan in icing :)
