So here it is…2021 so a Happy New Year to you all. After a lovely Christmas break, the real world is back with many returning to work this week. It is a little different to normal though with many schools closed, tier 4 across many parts of the country, and a general feeling of ‘When will this be over…?’
January can be hard regardless of global pandemics. So read on to see some happy biscuits to brighten your day. We know biscuits don’t fix things, but they really do make everything a little bit better!
Best Biscuit of 2020
Corporate Biscuits & Classes
It’s always so hard to choose my favourites over a year. We have gone from a brilliant icing class (yes, actual people in a room making Valentine Biscuit cakes back in early February) through to biscuits for Captain Tom when his autobiography came out. We also made the biscuits for the launch of Barack Obama’s book, A Promised Land (YES WE CAN), the new Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Nick Sharratt’s stunning illustrations for You Choose Fairy Tales.
Some people did manage to get married this year. We were so happy to make their wedding favours, and it was a privilege to work on the photo cookies people sent to family they couldn’t see this year.
Our gingerbread men had a slight upgrade this year to include masks, and we sent so many ‘Cup of Tea and a Biscuit’ packs out to staff working from home to help keep them feeling connected and boost morale (read our blog for how successful these have been to remote and furloughed staff!)
And here are my personal favourites…
Colour in your own Christmas jumper (quite a few Zoom Christmas parties!),
Rainbows, rainbows, rainbows and more rainbows (we have made hundreds!),
Online gingerbread house competitions with biscuits, icing, sweets and logos provide by us, and the creativity provided by the recipients
