Is there anything better than a biscuit with your tea? Yes there is. A biscuit with lots of icing on it. Whether it features a few dots or is completely smothered, a bit of of icing on a biscuit goes a long way. Not only do they taste great, but they look pretty too.
The Biscuiteers was set up by Harriet Hastings and her husband, Stevie Congdon, in spring 2007 as an online business, but it became so popular that by November they decided to turn it into a proper bakery. With a team of skilled icers, The Biscuiteers have created fabulous, fashionably themed designsfor Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, Harrods, Fortum & Mason, and other well known names.
In 2012, Harriet and Stevie decided to open up an Icing Cafe, where customers can come and ice their own biscuits. They also hold regular classes for those who want to do more than just make squiggles. You can learn how to make perfectly iced biscuits pretty enough give as gifts (to yourself), and have a fun time getting creative. There are all sorts of themed classes for adults and children. You can book by calling 08704588358.
