Pokemon Iced Biscuit Recipe – GBBO

I’m learning my lesson with the Great British Bake Off – watch the episode before completing the bake. Fortunately no-one asked Mary Berry this week about using pre-made fondant icing. I decided rather than this being because this year’s contestants are astute that I would be brave.

A couple of weeks ago Renshaw Baking sent me a selection of fondant icing in their new packaging. I love Renshaw fondant icing, and use it like clockwork for the children’s birthday cakes, which usually due to their demands can only be made with the benefit of coloured icing.Renshaw icingAside from making my own birthday cake (never going to happen), I didn’t really have any bakes on the horizon requiring ready to roll icing until this week’s Great Bloggers Bake Off challenge. I decided I would take the wrath and make my biscuits using pre-made fondant.

I like to think in spite of this I stepped up to the challenge. Pokemon Iced biscuitsI decided to go with Pokemon biscuits as it’s all the children talk about. In going back to school I wanted their lunchbox to have something in it which reminded them of the adventures of the summer. Although by lunchtime I imagine they’ll have forgotten all of the summer and instead be focused on catching up with friends and creating new adventures.

The children aren’t actually massive fans of fondant icing – the offset with delicious shortbread biscuit seemed to work for them and at least they are looking forward to their packed lunch.Eating a Pokemon Iced biscuit
