I was delighted to receive this lovely box of hand iced biscuits from the company Biscuiteers, who specialise in luxury baked gifts and are pretty much biscuit royalty. Upon opening the tin, I initially thought wow these biscuits are fit for a Princess, ironically forgetting that they are of course in celebration of the Queen's 90th birthday, which is coming up soon on 21st April 2016, although I believe the main events will be held throughout May and June.
The biscuits themselves are so pretty and beautifully decorated that I almost don't want to bite into them, although we so know I will. I've pictured here a selection of my personal favourites from the tin including an elegant three tier cake, a pair of royal crowns, Buckingham Palace, a golden carriage and of course the Queen's cutest Corgi dogs. Also in the tin are sweet little Union Jack Flags, Buckingham Palace Guards as well as the Queen's hat and handbag. The designs are so creative and imaginative!
I know I basically committed a British crime and accompanied my Biscuiteers set with a hot chocolate as I'm so not a tea drinker, but if you are I think they'd make for such a cute afternoon tea addition. I know that lots of people are already planning parties to celebrate the Queen's birthday (any excuse to party!) and these would be perfect for such an occasion.
The tin that the biscuits come housed in is really special, and something I will be keeping after they've all been scoffed (trust me, it won't be too long once I'm done admiring them). It's a nice keepsake to look back on the special occasion in years to come, it's not often that you'll live to see your Queen turn 90! Even those that aren't too bothered about the British monarchy, the tin has such a gorgeous, floral design that you'll want to keep it around anyway. I might use mine to store some of my nail varnishes in! You can browse and purchase the Biscuiteers Queen's 90th Birthday selection here, and I've noticed they also have a 10% discount code at the moment if you enter 'CORGI' at the checkout, (expires 20th April 2016).
