Wedding Weds: Blush & Gold

31st July

I’m introducing a new regular on the blog- Wedding Wednesday. Regular readers will know I’m getting married next year and this new regular on the blog is a place for me to indulge in all things weddings. Yep, I know I already blog about Bridal wear but this is going to be more on the lines of mood boards, hair/make up inspiration, tips on how to pick your suppliers & my fav- D.I.Y tutorials. I’ve shared a couple of D.I.Y projects before (which I really enjoyed putting together!)- D.I.Y Wedding Favours- Orange & Cardamom biscuits, D.I.Y Wedding/Engagement Cake Stand & D.I.Y Thank You Cards.

My first post is a re-post of my latest Pinterest mood board on Blush & Gold.

D.I.Y Wedding Favours- Orange & Cardamom biscuits

29th June 2012

If you’re looking for a simple homemade favour idea for your wedding- here’s an option to consider- Orange & Cardamon (Elachi) biscuits presented in a pretty D.I.Y box.

What you will need:

125g plain flour, 125g Butter, 75g Caster sugar, 1 tsp vanilla extract, 6 Cardamom pods, pinch of baking soda, Zest of 1 orange

1) Beat together sugar, butter and vanilla till pale and fluffy

2) Open cardamom pods and crush seeds with pestle and mortar. Add to butter/sugar/vanilla mix along with the orange zest

3) Sift the flour and baking soda into the bowl and then mix into a soft dough.

4) Place in a covered bowl in the fridge for an hour

5) Roll out the dough until 2cm in width- then get using biscuit cutters cut the biscuits and place onto greaseproof paper

6) Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins and then cool on a wire rack.

7) Once cool dust with icing sugar.

This made approx 25 medium size biscuits-you can always halve the size of the biscuits and use smaller boxes if you want to reduce prep time and costs.

I’ve used a plain white box and added two sheets of pink tissue paper inside the box and three biscuits.

To make the box more interesting I glued two sheets of tissue paper across the lid and then using some lace I had tied it into a bow. You can always add a name tag onto each box so it doubles up as a favour & name place.
