Biscuiteers! *REVIEW* & *GIVEAWAY* (Father's Day)


My lovely husband's second ever Father's Day is coming up and I've been having fun choosing some lovely gifts for him - I love special days like this, and try to make a big effort to celebrate each and every one of them - it is so nice to be able to take a moment to say 'thank you' to the awesome people in your life for what they do. Liam is the best dad to Bert I could ever have hoped for, and I have a rather lovely (surprise) gift up my sleeve for him on 21st June - I can't wait to give it to him! 

In the meantime, I thought I'd share with you a genius Father's Day gift idea, and give you the chance to win something FAB in time for the big day...

You might remember I introduced the wonderful Biscuiteers to my blog readers a couple of years ago when I attended their Christmas Press Night - I've been a huge fan of their stunning biscuits for a long time, and regularly use their cookery book to make my own at home. It's thanks to the Biscuiteer ladies that I know how to use Royal Icing (cheers guys!)

Their stunning hand-iced quirky little biscuit sets are the perfect gift for anyone with a sweet tooth whose fond of a biscuit or two (EVERYONE!?) and this Father's Day they have some pretty awesome collections especially for Dad. 

Liam was sent one of their Father's Day tins to try out at home (oh, the hardships of being married to a blogger!)...I opted for the Toolkit Biscuit Tin priced at £43.50 as Liam is pretty fond of a spot of DIY, plus it came with a personalised Beer glass biscuit as well, to which I had "Daddy, you're the best!" inscribed in icing! Awesome!


The biscuit collection comes in a beautiful metal tin - decorated with a tool kit illustration in a gorgeous colour palate of yellow and grey (my favourite colour combo!) - the tin is a beautiful touch and hubby already has plans to use it in his shed/man cave for all his manly bits and pieces (nuts & bolts etc!). 


The biscuits are so beautifully presented - wrapped in yellow tissue paper, and stacked on corrugated sheets stuck down with a small blog of dried icing to ensure each biscuit stays in place, the biscuits arrived completely unscathed despite having been posted - that's a mean feat in itself. 

'Daddy, you're the best!' personalisation - a gorgeous extra! 

I loved the personalised beer glass biscuit - the detail they manage to ice onto each of their biscuits is exquisite and from baker to baker I know just how difficult it can be to work with icing, so hats off to them! It's a great touch, and means you can make the tin extra-special, fantastic. 

Top layer of the tool kit tin. 

The tin contains 16 or more handmade biscuits which are all lovingly iced onto rich, super-chocolatey traditionally baked biscuits. Biscuiteers use the finest 100% cocoa powder, eggs, British butter and flour and some very difficult to measure golden syrup. Mixed, chilled and then hand cut using their own special cutters, they are then baked in their bespoke baker's oven and cooled on wire racks before being iced and packed into Biscuiteers tins. As homemade as if you had the time, skill and energy to do it yourself. 

Whoever said tea & biscuits was a girly pursuit? ...A biscuit platter for the manliest of men! 

Liam has been busy doing lots of manual work in our garden of late, and this tin of wonders has been the perfect tea break treat for him - chocolate biscuits in the sunshine, is their anything better?

He was super-chuffed with his manly biscuit tin, and couldn't get over how intricately decorated they were. He was also majorly happy that they were chocolate flavoured (he's a big chocoholic!)

Mmmmm.....which one would you eat first?

Luckily for me, I have a very generous husband who has shared his yummy biscuits with Bert and I. So I can vouch that they are truly scrumptious! Bert devoured a little screw-shaped biscuit and then proudly shouted 'More! More!' (his latest word!) bless him. 

Not a bad accompaniment to a day full of gardening, eh Daddy?

We still have about half the biscuits left, and are planning on enjoying them together this weekend with an afternoon cuppa! Perfect. 


The manliest tea & biscuits in the world ever? There's no denying this Daddy is COOL. 


The toolkit includes bolts, nails, spanners, screwdrivers, hammers, a beer glass, pliers and saw shaped biscuits. They each have a great balance between super sweet with an edge of saltiness (the perfect combination in my humble biscuit-eating opinion). Each one was iced to perfection, and they certainly made for an impressive display come tea-time! 

As well as the toolkit gift box Biscuiteers also have so many other amazing ranges that would be perfect for Father's Day:

-football 
-classic cars 
-big breakfast
-rugby
-superheroes
-bike race
-jocks and socks
-I LOVE YOU DAD
-Green fingers/gardening
-Mr Men
-The Good Life (veggies etc)

What an amazing choice!

For those on a slightly tighter budget (or watching their Daddy's waistlines) why not buy your Dad a personalised beer glass biscuit or a single jolly ginger?
