For those of us who are religious Easter has a lot of meaning but I’m not one of those so for me it’s a great four day weekend and an excuse to eat chocolate and treats. Easter doesn’t always have to be about the chocolate eggs (which are in the supermarkets from January 1st) places are getting more and more inventive with their Easter treats which is where Biscuiteers* come in.
The lovely team there sent me along their Easter egg mini collection and from the moment I saw the box it almost felt too good to option. But you know there was food inside so of course I was going to open it.
The brand state that they wanted to create biscuits that would look as beautiful as they tasted and as soon as I opened the box I knew spot on that they had done that. Come on how amazing do they look?!
I have no idea how the biscuits managed to wing their way through the ‘reliable’ Royal Mail network without as much as a little bead falling off but they did manage it. Nestled in the beautiful Easter tin was nine easter egg biscuits all decorated in their own way, each and every one handmade. With the company a lot of the icers are actually artists and as you can see that from the beautiful designs on the biscuits. Each one is made from start to finish by hand so they’re all totally unique so it’s well worth it rather than just buying something which has been mass produced.
To keep them all in place the biscuits are glued to the packaging which may be part of the reason why they arrived so perfectly, and the icing glue is just another tasty bit of the biscuit that you can eat.
Biscuiteers even make gluten free versions which is great for those of you who are allergic to gluten, or just choose to not have too much of it.
I’ve spoken quite a bit about the great packaging and the beautiful design but with food it’s really all about the taste and my favourite part was giving them a taste. They are committed to using really natural ingredients to get the flavours and although the biscuits are chocolate they aren’t sickly or overpowering. Everything used within the biscuits is the finest quality and you can taste that in every bite.
Their mission statement is ‘Why send flowers when you can send biscuits instead?’ and when they taste like these ones I would totally agree.
You can buy their products online here, or through retailers such as Selfridges or Harrods, alongside their own stores in Notting Hill or Northcode Road. The brand also offer icing classes in their cafes so you can master how to create these beautiful biscuits yourself.
