Monsters Inc. Iced Biscuits
These simply cute, iced biscuits are made from the cutters in the Disney Cakes and Sweets magazine.
There are many ways you can use them and even step by step instructions in the magazine on how you can.
I decided that I was going to use a basic biscuit recipe and ready roll icing.
Food Safe Cutters and Stamps used:
James P. Sullivan 'Sulley' outline cutter and stamp, from Disney Cakes and Sweets magazine.
Mike Wazowski outline cutter and stamp, from Disney Cakes and Sweets magazine.
3 different sizes of circular confetti plunge cutters, widely available
My steps on how to achieve them:
STEP 1: Mix the biscuit recipe (whichever recipe you decide to use)
STEP 2: Sprinkle some flour on the surface you are going to roll out your dough on, to stop the dough from sticking.
STEP 3: Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough evenly, the thickness depends on how thick you want your biscuit base.
STEP 4: Cut out your biscuit shapes.
STEP 5: Place on a baking try and put them in the oven for as long as your chosen recipe suggests at the temperature suggested.
*** Once baked and out of the oven you need to leave to cool ***
STEP 6: Whilst they are cooling, you can roll out your icing on the flour covered surface.
STEP 7: Using the stamps provided stamp your faces, on your characters outlines, on the icing.
STEP 8: Using the rounded cutters, cut out the amount of eyes needed. (do not stick on)
For Mike I used the big and the small confetti cutters, for Sulley I used the medium sized cutter, the middle of Sulley's eyes are premade decorative blue confetti from my local store.
STEP 9: Turning the iced faces upside down you can dampen with water to help it stick to the biscuit base.
STEP 10: Once on the biscuit you can dampen the front to remove any excess flour and the help the eyes stick to it (gently, not to ruin the stamp image.)
STEP 11: Make sure you have washed your hands so not to colour the white eye balls and layer your eyes on.
STEP 12: ENJOY! EAT! INDULGE!
