Oliver Bonas Christmas in July

It’s Chriiiiiiiiistmaaaaaaaaas! I know it’s a bit weird looking at Christmas things in the middle of July but it’s totally a thing. Tons of companies have ‘Christmas in July’ where they display all their upcoming festive products on a special press day. I was asked by the lovely ladies at Oliver Bonas to make some biscuit favours for their event last week. They wanted biscuits to match their ombré bauble collection and branded with their alternative logo which you can see here.

I had lots of fun figuring out how to make them – I’d never airbrushed before, but knew this would give the best effect and look most like the baubles. I invested in this airbrush which I think is now one of the best things I’ve bought. It was easy to use with clear instructions. I also used their airbrush colours and there’s a video of me using it here. I started by baking vanilla biscuits and used this cutter. I then flooded each biscuit white so that the airbrush colour would be bright and not mix with the background colour. I dusted each biscuit with the corresponding sparkly dust so they would catch the light. To finish the biscuits I hand wrote the logo on each one just using a black edible pen. I used this ribbon so it would look like they were actual Christmas decorations and guests could take them home and hang them.

The event itself was gorgeous. It was so great to have a sneak peek at all the new goodies and make a few mental notes in preparation for Christmas shopping. I definitely have my eye on a few cake stands! I loved seeing the biscuits next to the real baubles, they looked so fun and colourful. Thanks so much Oliver Bonas!
