Pantone biscuits

It was Art-Director-Of-Note’s birthday last week.

We’ve spent on average about 8 or 9 hours a day together, 5 days a week, for the last 5 years. Yeah, I know she probably deserves a medal. Anyway so the least I could do was bake something.

I found this idea on the Internet and decided to give it a bash. Pantone biscuits. Sounds simple enough, right? Well not really.

There was lots of planning and shopping, then some baking and then much decorating. Unfortunately they looked better in my head than they did in real life, but I like to think what they lacked in… shall we say… finesse… they made up for in taste.

Here’s some proof. Because if you don’t photograph it, did it really happen?

They’re colour correct, I borrowed the agency Pantone book and made sure of that. She’s an Art Director of Note, she totally would have known if they weren’t.

So this is how they looked in real life:

But this is how they looked in my imagination:

Katie on the internet made them look so slick and easy:

So, what to make next year? A spray glue cake or maybe entee-cutter cookies using boudoir biscuits? All ideas welcome, there’s less then a year to go.

Here’s a link to the recipe if you want it and another pic of annoying Katie’s perfect show off Pantone biscuits. Damn you Katie, damn you!

    @david, they took long! Made the biscuits on day one, iced them on day two, then write on them day three when icing has set. Pantone Rome wasn’t built in a day. 🙂
