Red nose day clown biscuits

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:
2oz sugar
4oz Margarine or Butter
6oz Plain flour
Icing sugar
Red food colouring
Pre-made royal icing (or you can make your own)
Icing pens
Rolling pin
Round cutter

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. 

A very simple red nosed clown for red nose day:
