The day I discovered Biscuiteers was extremely exciting.
I knew about it from a friend and was also lucky enough to complete an e-commerce internship there. I can say from first hand experience that this company is as inspirational as it appears. The staff are all friendly, hard working and love what they do.
Biscuiteers was created in 2007 by Harriet Hastings and Stevie Congdon, who are also co-directors of leading London catering company Lettice. The idea behind the company is supplying hand-iced edible gifts to the public that tell a story. They make the customer feel like they have gained an experience as well as a tasty gift. All products are not only hand-made but also beautifully wrapped in boutique boxes.
Biscuiteers ice all sorts of designs ranging from Beatrix Potter to Jolly Ginger biscuits. And they don’t just sell biscuits. They also design iced chocolates and cakes. Their designs are so imaginative and first class. They also produce bespoke biscuits to order and have supplied orders for the likes of Selfridges, Mulberry, Boden, and Burberry.
There are two Biscuiteer icing cafes in London; one in Notting Hill and one in Northcote Road, Clapham. These are both incredibly cute and unique. You can ice your own biscuits there in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere or even have afternoon tea.
The Notting Hill boutique is home to Biscuiteers school of icing. There are a range of classes you can attend and the kids can also join in with their own icing parties. All skills are catered for and the classes are friendly and relaxed with plenty of opportunity to get individual guidance as well as a group lesson.
So why not investigate when next in London or deliver a present to someone to make them smile? My two friends recently got engaged and so I sent them the bride and groom jolly gingers to say congrats (see above). They loved them!
