Sue asked if i could make some decorated biscuit for her with Retro design. I had not try decorating biscuits before, so I was a tad reluctant to take the order, because :

1) I don’t know if I can make them to look the way Sue wanted;
2) I’m skeptical about the taste of decorated biscuit.
3) I wasn’t sure if I could make the decorated biscuit without raw egg whites
(I have a principal about what type of orders I’ll take, and it’s, “What I don’t serve my family, I won’t serve to you.”, and raw eggwhite is something I won’t serve to my family, because I have two young kids.)

But anyway, I’m glad I took the challenge, and Sue was willing to take the risk. And, best of all I’m able to make them without having to use any raw eggwhites.

I think I bake too often for my daughters, decorating cakes are only done for their birthdays; I find light pastel colours more appealing, so the biscuits just looked a bit too feminine.

I made about 60 of them, although Sue only ordered 40, so we had some to spare at home; my eldest seemed to be the one who ate the most, constantly reaching into the biscuit jar (Tupperware, in our case), until the last one was gone.

I love how the biscuit turned out. It was buttery and not too sweet (even with the layer of royal icing), and it has a nice crunch.

For Sue, as requested, they were all individually packed.

Hope Sue and her friends like them as much as we did.

    My 2 cents contribution. Saw you stapled the packing, not too good I think, because the bullets could drop onto food when you open the packing. May be you could try using the printed labels to seal the packing, you know, those from the little stalls that print colorful stickers with pic and wordings. You can print your name and contacts and whoever ate the biscuits can contact you later and order.

    Hui Sia, Dinah, Ellie,
    Thanks.

    Chew Lee,
    Only if got… :)

    Sue,
    Refer to MSN. :)

    Lai Ping,
    Per my reply to you on email, this was done very last minute, so didn’t think about all these.
    Also the order was meant for adults.
    But thanks for your feed back, and I’ll definitely take that into considerations next time.

    Your cookies looks soo yummy…looks like store bought! Can I ask what cookies are those and the recipe? I was thinking of making them as gifts for Christmas for my co workers when the time comes. Hopefully it’ll turn out decent. I’m not even hoping it’ll turn out any where as nice as yours. I’m not very creative I guess :( Thanks :)
