Supercute Smiley Faces

Let’s face it, we’re all in need of a little something to smile about just now.  While not solving the world’s problems, these biscuits should certainly bring some brightness to your day.  These are made with a simple empire biscuit recipe, but with added sprinkles for joy.  I used a smiley face cookie cutter set from Lakeland – but if you don’t have one you can just use a round cutter and make the eyes and mouth yourself with a sharp knife.

Totally tropical pineapple and flamingo biscuits

I am obsessed by anything tropical.  I’ve got flamingo wallpaper in my flat, pineapple ornaments, and clothes covered in both.  So obviously it made sense to me to put my favourite things into biscuit form.  I was lucky enough to be given a pineapple shaped cookie cutter and found a flamingo one in a baking shop, but if you don’t have any then Amazon will sort you out so you can also experience some edible tropical joy!

Baking meets Star Wars – Empire Biscuits

I need to start with a confession.  I’ve never watched Star Wars, and don’t plan to any time soon.  But I am a baking obsessive and haven’t managed to escape the hype surrounding the latest movie.  So when my boyfriend and I saw these Star Wars themed sprinkles in Tesco, the idea of ‘Empire’ biscuits was too good an opportunity to miss.
