Valentine’s Day iced biscuits with the Cake Decorating Store
Making iced biscuits for a special occasion is something I really love. I will take any excuse to get baking and the Cake Decorating Store set me a mini challenge to create something tasty and pretty for Valentine’s Day.
The Cake Decorating Store www.cakedecoratingstore.co.uk have a gorgeous range of baking and decorating accessories. They also have a fabulous and affordable range of ready to roll icing in gorgeous colours. A really great one stop shop for all your baking needs. I love their range so much. My shopping list is huge!
I was sent this gorgeous package of Valentine’s Day goodies including a huge selection of heart cutters (I had no idea there were so many heart shapes), candy melts, sugar paste in cream and soft pink, big heart sprinkles, little heart sprinkles and a mix of pink sprinkles too. I love that the sprinkles come in a pot with a proper lid. I’m so accident prone anything to stop me spilling them is a god send!
I went a little nuts making the vanilla biscuits and used all the cutters to see how they looked. I really love this big elegant heart shape and the mini heart the best of all the cutters.
I tried rolling blobs of the different coloured sugar paste together and it made this beautiful stripey mix. I really love it over the single colour. It really made the biscuits more special.
My favourite combination was a thin piece of fondant on the biscuit with these sprinkles on. The sprinkles taste nice and the texture on the tongue is lovely too. the big heart sprinkles are a delight and are fabulous for decoration. I really liked the little hearts with a layer of sugar paste and then one big heart sprinkle on top. It looked so lovely and would be great as a party treat or wedding favour.
The heart shaped sprinkles were very cute but I think I loved the others more. The hearts had a nice taste and were very crunchy. I love the pink colours too. I’m not a pink person but these tones are nice and they look so pretty!
I tried dipping the biscuits in the candy melts which didn’t work very well so I didn’t include the photos. I think with a stronger biscuit it might have worked but they sadly went soggy. boo.
These have to be my most favourite of the biscuits I made.
I had so much fun making these Valentine’s Day biscuits but far more fun enjoying them with afternoon tea!
