  3. Classic mode Step 3

    Add the dry ingredients (i.e flour mix) to the butter mix and blend until the dough is formed. Wrap the biscuit in clingfilm and chill for at least one hour.

  4. Classic mode Step 4

    Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, gas mark 3) Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 0.5cm.

  5. Classic mode Step 5

    Using a jumper shaped cookie cutter, cut out the biscuits and transfer to a baking sheet. Roll up the trimming and repeat to make more biscuits. Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden.

  6. Classic mode Step 6

    Remove and transfer to a cooling rack and leave until completely cool before decorating.

  7. Classic mode Step 7

    To decorate mix together a few drops of water with icing sugar to make a thick icing. Only add a tiny amount of water as you can always add more if needed to thin out your icing. If too much water is added, add more icing sugar to thicken.

    Ingredients for this step

    • 500g 17⅝ oz Icing sugar (we use Silver Spoon)
  8. Classic mode Step 8

    Colour your icing with a small amount of food colouring until you reach the desired colour. Spoon the icing into a piping bag and snip a tiny amount off the end of the bag, enough to pipe a rim of icing around the outline of your biscuits.

    Ingredients for this step

    • Food colouring various colours
  9. Classic mode Step 9

    Pipe around the outline of the blazer and any detail down the centre and allow the icing to dry. Any remaining icing in your piping bag can be squeezed back into a bowl and thinned down in consistency by adding a drop more water, this will then be used to fill in the lines.

  10. Classic mode Step 10

    Once the icing is dry, pipe inside the lines, using the back of a teaspoon to help spread out the icing evenly. To create a pattern, pipe using a bag of alternate coloured icing. To give a tie dye effect, lightly drag a cocktail stick through the icing (before it sets) to blend the colours together.

  11. Classic mode Step 11

    Allow the icing to set before serving.
