heart-shaped biscuits

The Crafty Kitty | Heart Shaped Biscuit

This little activity happened rather spontaneously. Lily had been talking about making heart shaped cookies on the way to school and then I went to our local shop and discovered (unsurprisingly, considering the time of year!) a set of, reasonably priced, heart shaped cookie cutters. We used the sugar cookie cut-outs recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar. The cookies are decorated using “red” icing (I have serious issues with this food colour at the moment!) along with vegan: organic white chocolate chips, organic chocolate cereal hearts, organic sugar mimosas and some great sprinkles from Lakeland. I kinda find it amusing that they turned into a bit of a gory bleeding heart due to the colour and excessive icing.

I was so pleased to find this range of cake decorations in Lakeland, they are pretty accessible being on the high street and they didn’t cost a fortune AND they actually have on the label that they are Vegan. I finally went to go and buy some only to find out they are discontinuing the range. So please go complain to them that they need to keep them in stock!

I thought I would try a little experiment to see if Isaac would want to try his hands at decorating too. I figured worst case scenario: he eats all the toppings, icing and biscuits separately-no big deal! First step: drizzling on icing… no problem.

Next step, take a decoration and put it on the biscuit… I demonstrated and then…

Yep… he just put it in his mouth… This happened a few more times, until finally…

Some toppings landed on the biscuit! Only to be immediately picked up and popped into his mouth! Ah well! He still seemed to have a really good time and enjoyed being included in the activity.

The Crafty Kitty | 'Reading' The Ingredients List

Lily actually helped me make the cookies as well. Here she is ‘reading’ the ingredients. I forget now what she said we needed to make them. Some days she says the right sort of ingredients and some days it is all a bit random. I think I might miss her instructions when she can actually read!

    lovely :) I let my almost 2yo help with baking but similarly things start going in the mouth . She gets upset when it’s time to bake sometimes too because she’s having fun playing in the glop.
