Baby Biscuits



In April we had four good friends have babies – all baby boys. Last Sunday we went to visit little Max. He was only three weeks old – I haven’t held such a little baby in a long time! He is so adorable! Anyway, back to the food! I made these little biscuits to take to Max’s parents. They are the standard shortbread recipe I use when I am decorating shortbread – a much firmer shortbread than the one I make when making shortbread for shortbread’s sake rather than for decorating!





I had seen these little all in one biscuits in a book, but I didn’t have a cutter, so I traced around the photo in the book and then cut the biscuits out by hand. Not being known for my cutting skills and also being known for being just a bit quick, I was quite pleased with how I did. I was also really pleased with the decorating. I actually think that these are the best biscuits I have decorated and I feel quite inspired to do a lot more biscuit decorating.



I know that I have got lots of photos of exactly the same thing, but I am really proud of these!

What a gorgeous and different gift idea ! How did you manage to do the white spots ?

These are just the sweetest wee biscuits. How did you get the white spots to meld into the blue so well so that it looks like one piece?

I did the white spots by pipiing spots onto the blue icing while the blue icing was still wet - the dots kind of sink in and give that effect that I really like
