Scottish saying needed for cake?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A Scottish organization is having a party for the retirement of their chief. I need to provide a cake.

What can I put on the cake? I'd like something besides the usual, "Thanks Jim for all your hard work. From all of us". Something in Scottish or Gaelic would be nice, but I have no idea except Salainte! which means something like Cheers.

Any suggestons?

Thanks.

I don't know any Gaelic and I can't remember old Scottish sayings. (I think this is a slightly sad posting for me.)
You might try, "For Auld Lang Syne" as in the Burns poem/song. Litterally it means "For the old days" but in this context (as in the poem) it means "With fond memories of the time we have had together".
Is this too late?

I might be able to help. My boss is Scottish (right off the boat). He has been in the states for about 6 mos. If you want some help pm me.

Thanks for your suggestions. I received an email from the past chief of our organization with a suggestion. since the retiring chief is from the clan Campbell....

All the best from all of us. Ne Obliviscaris. 73rd chief.

the Ne Obliviscaris is the Campbell Clan motto. it means "forget not".

The cake was a big hit.
