I know it is a little early but Red Nose Day is on the 15th March and as we will be away a little before that, I thought I would show you what we are making (and selling to family and friends in order to raise money)
Red Nosed Clown Biscuits.
What you need:
4oz Margarine or Butter
6oz Plain flour
Red food colouring
Pre-made royal icing (or you can make your own)
Start by working the Sugar, butter and flour together with your hands, then kneed into a ball. Roll out onto a floured surface and using a cutter make circles (I didn’t have a circle cutter so used one of the hoops from a game of Emmy’s – you could use a cup, plate or and circle shape). We then baked our biscuits for around 8-10 minutes in the oven on 200 degrees.
We iced our biscuits by mixing the icing sugar together with a few drops of water and red food colouring, then Emmy decorated it – smarties for hair, a red ball of royal icing (ours was white but I added a few drops of red colouring and worked it in – it’s messy so do that yourself), we then used the icing pens to make mouth and eyes.
