Biscuit Decorating


 

The hardest part of this activity is to persuade the toddlers to get the icing and sprinkles on the biscuits before eating them!

One for me, one for the biscuit.

Buy a packet of plain biscuits (rectangular shaped biscuits like malted milk work well for Wubbzy), icing sugar, food colouring and chocolate chips/sugar strands/mini Smarties, etc for decoration. Plain chocolate chips make good Wubbzy eyes and nose, whilst halved white chocolate buttons can be used for his ears and mouth.

Decorated Wubbzy Biscuits

  • Use about 3 heaped tablespoons of icing sugar to 2 - 3 teaspoons of hot water and a couple of drops of food colouring (This quantity is enough for approximately 10 biscuits.)
  • Mix until smooth
  • The consistency should be thick enough to spread on the biscuit but not runny enough so that it pours everywhere (similar in thickness to golden syrup
  • I mix the icing in a tea-cup as my daughter finds it easier to hold something with a handle.
  • Repeat these steps until you have all the colours you want
  • Place a teaspoon in each cup and let the little one spoon the icing onto the biscuit. Use the back of the spoon to spread it around if needed
  • Add sprinkles, sweets or chocolate chips - or all three.
