We were asked to make some bespoke Eiffel Tower biscuits for a hen party last week – and we were really pleased with how they turned out! These would be perfect as place settings at a wedding or party, and would double up as a favour. If you have a bespoke idea please get in touch – we love thinking up new ideas and trying new biscuits.
We’ve teamed up with the lovely Lisa at Sweet 2 Eat Baking to offer one lucky person the chance to win one of our two layer biscuit gift sets. If you’d like to enter (FREE BISCUITS, you’d be mad not to!) just visit www.sweet2eatbaking.com/honeywell-bakes-review-and-giveaway and follow the instructions. Good luck!
We had some very exciting news last week – our sister Laura got engaged! In honour of the upcoming wedding I designed a new wedding/engagement set, complete with a sparkly diamond ring and two love birds. It’s now available in our shop!
Marshmallows are tipped to be the big thing this year, and having never made them before, we thought we’d better get with the times! With Valentines Day coming up we thought we’d make some extra special, heart shaped, glittery marshmallows. Here’s how!
We adapted our marshmallows from this Good Food recipe - rather than make them coconut flavour we opted for raspberry flavour instead, and left out the desiccated coconut. We expected a disaster first time, but it went very smoothly – they turned out rather well!
The recipe above will walk you through the steps – you’ll need to separate the eggs and whisk the egg whites until they form stiff peaks – you should be able to hold the bowl upside down without them moving.
A sugar thermometer is very helpful – we have a nifty spatula with a thermometer inside from Lakeland.
Combine the hot sugar and whisked egg whites, plus the flavouring you’ve chosen. We wanted to do two colours and didn’t have pans small enough so used tinfoil to make a damn.
Leave to set for a few hours, and cut out your chosen shape. We found putting a little oil on the cookie cutter and knife made the job a lot easier – you’ll have to keep wiping and oiling as you cut or it gets a bit sticky and messy. We then dipped the hearts in sanding sugar to make them glittery!
Voila – romantic valentines marshmallows!
We also tried some standard squares – still yummy but we don’t think they don’t look so good.
Glitter heart marshmallows on sticks, we think this much cuteness is hard to beat! We used wooden skewers underneath the paper straws to give more stability.
Isabella was our chief taste tester and we’re pleased to report that she approved
Spring has sprung (well, we’re feeling optimistic) and we have some new biscuit collections to celebrate!
Here’s our Easter collection – a large Easter egg, two bunnies, a chick and a ducking in pretty pastel colours.
Next up the Gardeners Fruit and Vegetables gift set featuring spring fruit and vegetables - prefect for a green fingered friend, or maybe Daddy dear on Father’s Day!
Our Valentines gift set would make a very sweet gift for any love birds…
And last but not least our Time for Tea gift set – inspired by Cath! We had Mother’s Day in mind with this, then loved it so much decided it would be great for any occasion.
We are also busy working on some bespoke collections for various different corporate clients as well as some wedding and bespoke party biscuits – if you have a particular idea in mind please get in touch, we love working on new things!
