Hand painted biscuits for Christmas, Scandinavian/Dolomites/South Tirol style



These days there are a lot of Christmas Parties and events around, and on Sunday I had a double booking. I went to the Dante Society Xmas party (also because my kids were preforming), and sadly I missed this Slow Food Waitakere Terra Madre celebrations, which I was told was a great evening!

Feeling guilty and wanting to take part in spirit I made some biscuits for the event, covered them with fondant (brush with jam first, I used raspberry) and then together with Arantxa we painted them all using red food colour gel and jam. I have a couple of thin paint brushes that I use only for cooking.

I really like white and red for Xmas, and I love patterns that make me think of the Dolomites, South Tirol, and Scandinavian Christmas. The biscuits looked truly beautiful, it took us three afternoons to paint them (many other chores to be done too), but mostly because we had to think about what to paint... next time it will be quicker, and I know that reindeers and mountain goats, rosters and birds, flowers and hearts etc. always look great. 




The biscuits were much appreciated at the event, and I hope that you will like the idea too!

    1. Mi piace dipingere ma non lo faccio da decadi ormai, quindi questo è un po' come tornare indietro per me.

  9. Ciao Serena, guarda i disegni potrebbero essere anche tedeschi, ungheresi e cechi e chissà che altro, mi ricordano anche i ricami rossi sulle camicette tradizionali. Le renne sono più del nord ma i camosci e cervi del centro Europa, Nord Italia compreso :-). Si possono mangiare.
