My first recipe book called Bee’s Brilliant Biscuits is OUT in the UK yippee!

(You can order it online here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1910496464 )

We had a little party to celebrate, at the most beautiful venue, Paper Mill Studios in Islington, and it was a little bit of a blast! Drinks were provided by Kamm & Sons, Dalston Cola, Joe’s Tea and Camden Hells Lager, and food, in the form of sweet and savoury biscuits (of course) was provided by my recipe book, with some additional amazing cheese from Daylesford Organic.

We baked around 1000 biscuits for the event, with recipes ranging from our famous jammy dodgers, to our gluten and dairy free chocolate and avocado cookies, and we also had some takeaway dog treats on standby too.

Around 110 people came, a mixture of friends and family (thanks for coming Mum), and some of my awesome kitchen neighbours too. It was great to finally meet Elaine Stocks from BBC Good Food, Felicity Cloake, and lovely to see Edd Kimber, Chetna Makan and Juliet Sear again too.

We had a biscuit decoration workshop run by a member of my team called Gina, a giant biscuit mural that we coloured in with edible pens and put on the wall by Laura my kitchen manager. Charlie Philips, my good friend and prop stylist for the book, made an incredible biscuit piñata, which was filled with hundreds of iced gem cookies – here are some pics of it in action:

Here are some kind words written by my Topshop events team client: wow!

BEE’S BRILLIANT BISCUITS.

“When you work in events and you go to events organised by other people, it’s hard not to critique where they’ve gone wrong and moan about what you would have done differently. I know it makes me sound like a prick but it’s often something I can’t help myself doing. Last night I went to an event that was absolutely perfect, it was organised better than I ever could have done myself and every single aspect made me smile.

Bee Berrie is is mastermind behind the Bee’s Bakery biscuit phenomenon and has been baking the best Jammy Dodgers in London since she gave up a career in science back in 2012. Bee has now branched out beyond just baking delicious little treats and is passing her skills onto the world with her amazing new book Bee’s Brilliant Biscuits. It’s no lie either, her biscuits are brilliant and I couldn’t recommend them more.”

Bright, fun and pretty gorgeous, the delicate little sugar roses are individually made by hand and painstakingly placed on to complete the diagonal pattern.

Totally customisable, we can colour match the roses to any colour you choose – and we bake amazing cakes of all sorts of recipes including a classic Genoese sponge, to a more adventurous chocolate milkshake cake with a very grown up mascarpone filling.
