Homemade biscuits


This will be a bit of a short post as my camera's playing up and I've not managed to get many photos, but I so wanted to post a couple of pics of my iced biscuits I made yesterday! 


I was originally planning on baking some 'Valentine's Day' heart biscuits next week but my sewing machine bulb blew (again) yesterday, and as the natural light was awful, my sewing plans had to be put on hold for the rest of the day! 

You may remember that after Christmas me and my sister tried our hand at icing, and I loved it, so I have since invested in three squeezy bottles and three icing nozzles. This meant that I could do each of the threes colour separately... so much easier than switching all the time!


I kept the shapes and designs simple, but I'm really pleased with the way they have turned out... I especially like the dotty ones (anyone who knows me will testify I am a little obsessed with red and white spots!) What do you think?


They also taste very yummy and I ate far too many yesterday! The biscuits themselves are made from a 'super choclately' recipe out of my Biscuiteers Book of Iced Biscuits and have proved a big hit so I will definitely be making them again soon I think.

That's all for now, hope you all have a smashing weekend xxx
