You can make all of your wedding favours for under an incredible £50 - leaving you budget to spend elsewhere.

Here’s our handy guide to make your very own unique wedding bakes:

Choose your type of biscuit or cookie.

There are so many choices, from chocolate chip or gingerbread, right through to pecan or peanut butter.Our favourite is the simple, yet delicious, shortbread. We’ve provided the recipe for approximately 10-12 shortbread biscuits - you’ll need to multiply the recipe depending on your guest numbers.

What you’ll need:

    • 190g plain flour
    • 55g caster sugar
    • 125g unsalted butter
    • Chocolate chips (optional)
    • Spoon
    • Bowl
    • Sieve
    • Rolling pin
    • Greaseproof paper
    • A stamp - in the design of your choice
    • Biscuit cutter - in the shape of your choice
    • Ready to roll fondant icing
    • Optional extra decorations: silver balls, sprinkles etc.

Choosing a design

Using a personalised stamp to press into your icing makes it simple – ensuring an immaculate, unique biscuit design.

For beautiful favours, you could customise a stamp with ‘Handmade by the bride and groom’ or ‘Thank you from the new Mr and Mrs Ranby’.

Or perhaps your wedding date and venue name for unique save-the-dates.

Shortbread method

  1. Mix together your butter and sugar.
  2. Sieve in the flour and mix again.
  3. Roll out your mixture to approximately 1cm-1.5cm thick. (Roll onto a floured surface to stop it sticking).
  4. Cut out your shortbread shapes.
  5. Pre-heat your oven to 180℃/ Gas mark 4.
  6. Bake them for 15 minutes, making sure they don’t turn golden.
  7. Let them cool completely before decorating.

Personalisation method:

1) Roll out your ‘ready to roll’ fondant icing to approximately 0.5cm thick.

2) Cut out your shapes with the same sized biscuit cutter as you used for the shortbread shapes. 

3) Press on your design with the stamp.

4) Boil some water and let it cool down. Use this to spread on the back of the icing and stick it to the shortbread. (Alternatively, you can use jam to stick these on!)

5) Add any extra decorations you’d like!
