Beyond Retro Christmas Jumpers
I know what you’re thinking. I’ve seen these biscuits before. You would be right. I made similar ones a couple of years ago when we had a ‘Christmas Jumper Party’. I tweeted about them last week and Beyond Retro got in touch about having them at their Christmas Launch Party. I was of course really excited as I love Beyond Retro. I’ve been visiting their shops for ages, especially when I was at Uni in Brighton. They always have the best stuff and I’ve purchased numerous exciting everyday pieces, fancy dress elements, Halloween costumes and my favourite Christmas Jumpers. They have the best Christmas Jumper selection and I was thrilled to hear they were opening a pop-up dedicated to them. The shop, which supports Save the Children, is located in Old Street Station and is a treasure trove of festive finds from jumpers, skirts, sequin-covered party wear to accessories. The party was last night and featured amazing nail art, carols by Elle and the Pocket Belles and of course, I couldn’t resist picking up a new shiny sweater. The biscuits I made were to be given out as favours so I individually wrapped them and finished them with red velvet ribbon. This time around I upgraded my cutter and used this Lakeland one as it was a nicer shape and made for a bigger biscuit. I then flooded and decorated them using royal icing. I chose to recreate some of my original designs and then added a few new ones especially for Beyond Retro (the blue and orange ones) inspired by some of their sweaters I saw online (such as this and this). A big thank you to Beyond Retro for including me in their event. Definitely go visit the Pop-up and get yourself cosy for Christmas!
