Christmas may be just around the corner but there’s still time to whip up a few festive treats for your customers! If you’re struggling for inspiration this season, we’ve picked out our favourite Christmas biscuit designs that are sure to impress. From impeccable icing to ingenious stacking, here are five festive designs to try out this season.
1. Stacked Christmas trees biscuits
A clever way to present your biscuits over the festive period, these vanilla and almond flavoured biscuits have been brilliantly stacked into fun Christmas trees. Simply cut your biscuits into three different sizes and stack using a vibrant green frosting. Finish with silver balls and gold star cake decorations to complete the festive effect!
2. Snowmen cookies
A design which will require a little more patience, these wonderful snowman cookies are sure to be a popular choice this Christmas! Roll out white sugar paste and cut out circles the same size as your cookies. Next, roll out blue sugar paste and cut out circles using the same cutter, then cut them in half using a sharp knife. Assemble your cookies by layering the icing on top of the biscuits, then add the finishing touches using black royal icing for the eyes and mouth!
3. Christmas jumper biscuits
Since Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a few weird and wonderful Christmas jumpers, why not whip up an edible range for your customers? After cutting out your biscuits using a jumper-shaped cookie cutter, use a flood and fill technique to ice your biscuits. Once you’ve got your colourful base layer of icing, you can then create your own Christmas jumper designs! Whether you want to keep it simple or show off your piping skills, you can’t help but love these quirky cookies.
4. Iced snowflake biscuits
Fancy putting your piping skills to the test? If you really want to impress this Christmas, these stunning snowflakes certainly require a steady hand. This classic biscuit design is best achieved using white royal icing of a mix of consistencies, and you’ll probably want a few trial runs before you get going! Opt for designs which can be achieved using a continuous hand motion, allowing you to apply a constant pressure to the piping bag. Once you’re happy with the design, add edible silver balls to complete the effect!
5. Assorted edible decorations
Who doesn’t like to add a few edible decorations to their Christmas tree? This fantastic assortment of iced gingerbread biscuits may take a while to produce by hand, but the final result will definitely be worth the wait! From pretty snowflakes and cute baubles to fun stockings and festive snowmen, the options of what you can create are endless! Why not decorate each batch in similar colours so your customers can choose ones that match their tree?
