Tunnock’s teacake cushion by Nikki Made

Tunnock cushion

When it comes to icons of the UK's cake/biscuit industry, Scotland's Tunnock's teacake has to be up there, going strong since the 1950s. Celebrate a bit of that sweet history with this Tunnock's teacake cushion by Nikki Made

The cushion uses the distinctive packaging of those teacakes to make an impact. Circular shaped, their cotton, has been screen-printed with those instantly recognisable red stripes. Team them up with one of  Gillian Kyle's bags and mugs for a teacake-tastic look. 

Each cushion costs £12.

Ice Cream Van model kit from Finch and Fouracre

Ice cream kit

With the August bank holiday just a week away, here's a final taste of summer – an ice cream van kit from Finch and Fouracre

Finch and Fouracre are a Scottish based company who normally specialise in model of tenements houses and other architectural landmarks. Here they've turned their attention to a spot of summer whimsy, with a wonderfully retro ice cream van. The kits slot together so there's no need for glue and once that's done you can decorate the van with stickers, including the essential Mr Softie sign. 

The kits have been made in limited numbers so, like the summer, make the most of it while it's still around. The kit costs £9.50.
