Biscuiteers Butterflies

I can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday morning than icing butterfly biscuits at Biscuiteers. My sister bought me a class at their icing school which is part of their shop in Notting Hill. The shop was lovely, packed wall to wall full of biscuits and inspiration. I had a good look at all the biscuits before the class to see what I was aiming for. The class itself was so much fun. The school part is tucked downstairs in an adorable kitchen area and in a cosy booth my sister, my friend Fiona, another lovely lady and I we were shown step by step the icing process by our brilliant teacher Charlie. We were given plenty of biscuits to practice and learn new skills. I learnt a lot including how to get air bubbles out of piping bags (finally!), how they dry the icing quickly and how they layer the different types of icing. My favourite new trick is blending the colours by dragging them across one another with a oversized cocktail stick. I’m so pleased with how they turned out. The colours we used were gorgeous and we topped them off with gold paint which made the wings come to life. I could have spent all day playing with different designs and combinations but we only had a couple of hours. We did however leave with a generous gift bag complete with book and apron (score!), a tin full of pretty biscuits and huge smiles.
