With wedding season fully upon us, what better way to feel the love than with some homemade iced biscuits courtesy of Biscuiteers?

To add a personal touch to your special day, follow this step-by-step guide to create perfectly bespoke wedding favours straight from the brand's bestselling Wedding Bells biscuit tin...

To start...

  1. Begin by baking your biscuits using the Biscuiteers Gluten Free Vanilla Biscuit recipe or the Easy Vanilla Dough recipe.
  2. Then, using a bell and car cutter, cut out as many biscuits as you can. These cutter shapes can be found online.
  3. Bake your biscuits for 15-20 minutes at 170°C. Using the easy guide from Biscuiteers, create your line and flood icing. You’ll need to make six different colours; white and grey for the flood and white, black, pink and green for the line icing. You’ll also need some edible silver balls for your bells!
  4. Pour the line icing into four icing bags (available here). You'll also need two squeezy bottles for the flood icing. 

   

For the bells...

   

Once the biscuits have completely cooled down you can start icing.

  1. Using your white line icing, carefully pipe the outline of the bell and leave to dry for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Fill the bell in with your white flood icing, being careful not to over fill. 
  3. Pop the biscuits back onto a baking tray and into the oven on the lowest temperature for 40 minutes. Don’t worry, your biscuits wont bake any further - this just helps to dry the icing.
  4. Once the biscuits are dry it’s time for the fun part - adding the details. Carefully ice a line across the bottom of the bell, finishing off with a bow.
  5. Ice a small dot at the bottom of the bell and place an edible silver ball on top. Leave to dry for 10 minutes at room temperature.

 

For the cars:

  

  1. Once your car biscuits have cooled, using the images as a guide ice the outline of the car and then the window and tires, then leave to dry for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  2. After the line icing has set, you’ll need to fill in the car. Start off by using white flood icing to fill in your biscuit, then using the grey flood icing fill in the window. Finish off the car tires by using black line icing.
  3. Place the biscuits back onto a baking tray and into the oven on the lowest temperature for 30 minutes - we recommend between 50°C-70°C. Again, don’t panic, your biscuits won’t bake any further - it just helps to dry the flood icing.
  4. After the icing has dried, you’ll need to add the details to the car. Start off by outlining the window with white line icing to add a frame, then still using the white line icing pipe a rectangle underneath – this is where the ‘just married’ writing will go. Add decoration with little green polka dots and pink bow streamers, or decorate your biscuits to fit the colour scheme of your wedding!
  5. Ice ‘Just Married’ into the rectangle box using your black line icing.
  6. Leave to dry at room temperature for 10-20 minutes, then pack away in an air tight container for the big day!
