Girly Iced Shoe Biscuits

Girly Shoe Biscuits

My quest to find an achievable little task each day continues, as I work on building up my strength. So… when I made the Easter egg biscuits I also cut out and baked some shoe shapes, which I’ve now decorated with pink royal icing. Its my first attempt at shoe biscuits… I’d like to do a better job of icing them next time I make them, with finer and neater lines and with accurate shoe details rather than just piping on random adornments, but overall I’m pleased with how they’ve turned out.

I can see them coming in very handy when there’s a girly party, or to give as a gift to a shoe-loving friend, or maybe even for a bridal shower or wedding if they were iced in white. To make your own little shoe biscuits, follow the link to the tutorial in my Easter egg biscuit post (found on the UK Handmade website). Leave out the spots (if you want to) and when the surface of the icing is dry, use the stiffer icing that you used for piping the edges of the biscuits to add the line and dot detail to the shoes. The sweet white pompom on each shoe just came from a pink multipack of icing decorations from Asda :)

Tip: Keep the bowls of icing covered with damp teatowels to make sure the icing doesn’t dry out by the time you are ready to use it.
