Biscuiteers’ biscuits not only look stunning but also taste it (with the perfect icing:biscuit ratio).
I’ve got a bit of a love/hate relationship with sugar. I absolutely adore all things sugary. I could devour a whole family-sized chocolate bar in one sitting. Easter eggs would last 2 or 3 days, whereas my siblings could make them last weeks. And then, a year before getting married, I gave it up for a whole year. In fact, it ended up more than a year. I first gave it up in February 2017 and caved into chocolate in April 2018. No chocolate, no biscuits, no refined sugar.
Once the wedding was over, I was back onto eating desserts for about 6 weeks, and then decided I should stop eating them again until after the honeymoon.
It wasn’t from a diet point of view (I’m a size 8), but it was for a general healthy eating, my-body-doesn’t-need-sugar-to-live kind of health kick. So as of now, I still don’t eat refined sugar. HOWEVER, I allow myself an occasional treat and a birthday is absolutely an occasion for a treat.
So when Biscuiteers got in touch to provide me with a birthday gift, I couldn’t say no. Last year, I had a cheese cake for my birthday (an actual stack of cheese). This year, I knew I was going to temporarily give into my no-sugar diet, so how better to do it than with some gorgeous iced biscuits!
Obviously, biscuits being sent in the post might be a bit of a risk from a breakage point of view. However, Biscuiteers have thought of everything. Their biscuits come iced down to some black foil packaging. These means they don’t move about and rattle in the tin; they’re fixed.
It’s done very neatly, the biscuits are easy to pull off the backing, and it means they’re all kept in one piece.
I went for the ‘Vintage’ birthday tin which is why the biscuits are all ice cream sundaes, doughnuts and jellies. You can even get personalised biscuits for an extra £5 that you can add a message to.
Biscuiteers’ biscuits were so nice. They were gorgeously soft (but not to the point where you might mistake them for being stale) and had just the right amount of icing on.
The ones we got were vanilla, but you can get some tins in ginger, chocolate or spiced variations. Each biscuit is lovingly hand-iced meaning they won’t all be identical. But that’s what makes them unique.
These biscuits will definitely wow at any family event or party. The only negative I have to say about these biscuits is the price. This particular tin cost £45 for 12 biscuits. As delicious as they were, I think that is rather pricey.
I’ll definitely be buying some of their Christmas themed tins too. They’ll be perfect for any family member, and you can even get a bottle of wine with it too.
