The meaning of "Biscuit" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does the biscuit butterer mean?

Q: What does that really takes the biscuit mean?
A: That one is difficult to explain...I can only speak for the conversational side of it and out of context, anyone feel free to correct me here but:

It's a bit of a sarcastic remark.

For example:

You are late for work, got out of bed late, spilled your coffee, shoe laces broke, ran to catch your bus only to find out it was early and you missed it. "That really takes the biscuit" biscuit can be replaced with any number of things,

"That really takes the cake/prize/ribbon."

Almost like it's gone over and above what you expected, lots of bad things happened but missing your bus on top of it all "really takes the biscuit".

Probably in this case, they refer to the idea people have of Scotland, which of course is not like the everyday reality.
