About a year ago when we first went into lockdown #1 I connected with the author Caryl Hart on Instagram. My eldest absolutely loves The Invincibles series and it wasn’t until I started following Caryl that I realised just how prolific she is. If you’ve ever taken a child’s book out of the library then chances are its one of Caryl’s. I had been reading her books to my girls for years and hadn’t even realised.
I feel so lucky that now I’ve collaborated with Caryl on numerous occasions to create fun cooking activities for parents and kids to make together whilst enjoying one of her brilliant stories.
‘Sonny Says Mine’ is the latest touching tale from Caryl. An excellent story for young children about doing the right thing.
Sonny’s story revolves around him finding a new toy at the park who he calls Bun-Bun. Luckily you can make enough Bun-Buns to share with these delicious Bun-Bun biscuits!
You will need 2 to 3 baking trays, lined with baking paper and a circle cookie cutter.
- Batch of Biscuit dough
- 250g ready to roll pink icing
- Tablespoon icing sugar and a few drops of water
- Black icing pen or edible ink
Preheat your oven to 200°C
Prepare the biscuit dough as per the recipe link above.
Roll to the thickness of a pound coin. Using the cutter, cut rounds from the dough.
To make the ears, pinch a small amount of dough and attach to the round as per the below.
Place on a baking tray leaving a bit of space between each bunny. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just golden.
Allow to cool completely before decorating.
Mix the icing sugar with the water to form a runny paste. This is the glue which will stick the icing to the biscuits.
Roll out your pink icing and cut circles using the same cutter you used for the biscuits.
Pinch small amounts off for the ears as you did with the dough. Paint the biscuits with the icing sugar paste and place the pink circles and ears on top.
Draw Bun-Buns features onto the pink icing with your black pen.
