The original hand-iced biscuit company, Biscuiteers, has added to its Beatrix Potter collection with some new designs
What with the new season of The Great British Bake Off opening with biscuit week, the teatime treat (which, let’s be honest, at any time of day) is more popular than ever before. Biscuiteers, the London-based biscuit maker, has been making, baking and selling their creations from its bakery since 2007, and has been designing Beatrix Potter biscuits since 2015.
To celebrate 150 years since the birth of Beatrix Potter, a number of new designs have come to life, including a charming biscuit tin and four new ‘letterbox biscuits’ sets that make perfect presents for new babies, christenings and special birthdays.
The Beatrix Potter biscuit tin contains nine hand-iced vanilla biscuits, featuring six edible characters plus a potted rose, pink butterfly and sprouting radish, all cased in an illustrated tin box that you can keep long after the treats have gone.
There’s three new options for the letterbox biscuits – named so because the slim box packaging is the perfect size to slip right through your letterbox. The first features the Two Bad Mice alongside a pretty pink cottage, another of Peter Rabbit with a carrot, watering can and shovel, and lastly Mrs Tiggy-Winkle and her apron, washing basket and iron.
But arguably, the show stopper is the new Beatrix Potter hamper; a bumper gift which gets you the aforementioned biscuit tin, a Peter Rabbit soft toy and a Wedgwood mug featuring a sleepy Peter in the garden.
Since its launch, the company has opened two popular ‘icing cafes’ in Notting Hill and Battersea, where you can enjoy afternoon tea, commission bespoke cakes and biscuits and even learn how to ice like a true Biscuiteer. Head down there if you’re up for the challenge!
