I saw this idea on Pinterest and loved it so much that I had to give it a go myself. I am actually really impressed with how they turned out, I think they look so cute! The only thing I’d do next time is make the icing a tiny bit thinner as when I lifted the biscuit out of it, it left quite a thick layer and bits were uneven. They’re fun to make and you could make them to suit any occasion by switching the colours, I’ll definitely be making them again.
- Your favourite biscuit recipe (I used my shortbread recipe and made the biscuits slightly thicker so that they were easier to dip in the icing)
- 2 tsp. Egg White Powder
- 5 tbsp. Water
- 250g Icing Sugar
- Food Colouring
- Bake your biscuits and leave them to cool completely
- For the icing, start by mixing the egg white powder with 2 tbsp. of water, leave to sit for about 5 minutes
- Sift your icing sugar into a bowl along with the egg white powder/water mixture
- (Using an electric mixer with a whisk attachment) Whisk the icing sugar and egg white/ water mixture until it clumps together
- Add the remaining water bit by bit until you reach a smooth consistency
- Keep this whisking for about 5 minutes and add a little more water if you feel it needs it (you need to be able to dip your biscuits into it without it all just running straight off again)
- Add a couple of drops of food colouring into the icing and using a skewer lightly swirl the colour so that I creates a marble effect (try not to be too heavy handed otherwise it’ll just dye all the icing one colour)
- Then just dip your biscuits into the icing and slightly twist before you bring it back out.
- Tap the biscuit lightly on the worktop to even out the icing.
