How to make
You Will Need:
125g Butter or Margarine
55g Caster Sugar
180g Plain Flour – sieved
Pre-baked ornate plaque shaped shortbread biscuits
250g Renshaw Jet Black Ready to Roll Icing »
Apricot Jam – Warmed
Super White Powder »
Rolling Pin »
Palette Knife »
Ornate Plaque Cutters (various sizes)
Cooled Boiled Water
Heat the oven to 190°C/375°F/gas mark 5.
Knead the Jet Black icing 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 Jet Black icing cut out 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 Jet Black icing, 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.
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.
