How To Make Chalkboard Biscuits
6 to 12
- Knead the Black fondant on a clean, dry surface until pliable. Dust surface with a little icing sugar if required then roll out to your desired thickness.
- Cut the ornate plaque shape out, using the same cutters used for the biscuits.
- Brush the front of the biscuit with apricot jam and place the Black fondant cut out on to the prepared biscuit. Lightly press down using your smoother.
- Repeat this process for the other styles of plaques, making sure not to mark the front with the apricot jam.
- Once all biscuits are covered with the Black fondant, set to one side and allow to dry overnight. This will give you a good base to paint onto in the morning.
- Once your biscuits have dried overnight, take a small amount of the Super White Powder (roughly the size of a pea) and with a small paint brush add cooled boiled water to turn the powder into a paint consistency.
- Using a small paint brush, you can start to paint your inspirational words onto the biscuit. You can experiment with different fonts and styles, to get your desired finish.
- Having written your word onto the biscuit, use the same brush to make a line border around the edge (see picture).
- Once you have done one of the biscuits, repeat the same process for the remaining ones, changing the words on the different shapes. We have used the following words – laugh, love, dream, honour and believe.
- These chalkboard biscuits are great for wedding favours or home made gifts.
- This technique can be used to decorate the other shaped biscuits, for example an apple shape, as thank you present for a teacher.
