Award ideas for Cake Walk?

I still have lots of time, but for my upcoming competition I'm organising a Cake Walk Special competition. And I need ideas for awards.
(Cup)cakes would be logical, but I'd like something a little more lasting as well. Since my Special is never covered by the organisation (long story ...), I don't want it to be too expensive.
Any ideas?

I would first look at what kind of budget you have available.
Then, I would attempt to name a kind of dollar figure for your special comp. Are you going to charge entrance fees?

Is your comp going to be THE competition, or, is it in parallel with the competition?

Also,what ages are we looking at?

Maybe you could create some sort of certificate, border it with thistles, ghillies, etc., claymores... use a special font? Looks like the most "attractive" award would either be a cup or ribbon of some sort, with the name of the event and the year. . . .

Your local supermarket probably has a lot of these: . . .

Would these help?

This company has great crests.

Another option is to work out a deal with a local artist to create something unique. I love the celtic stained glass. Something as small as an ornament would be an ideal keepsake and make a really awesome award.

What about a ceramic shortbread pan (you know, the kind with thistles or Scottie dogs or some other kind of design that then gets transferred to the shortbread)? [There are some small ones that are more like cookie stamps if your budget is really small.] Or a baking basket with ingredients / supplies / a recipe book for baking cakes?
