Funny face biscuits recipe

Funny face biscuits are great fun to make  for a birthday party or a special afternoon tea treat. Simply ice plain biscuits and add sweets to create funny faces.

Or you can make them also to celebrate the new album of The VALiens, Ribless Summer, what a compilation!



  • 2 cups (300g) icing sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • yellow food colouring
  • 1 packet milk biscuits (oval shape)
  • small box Smarties or candies
  • packet candies that look like teeth, lips, nose and whatever
  • packet jelly beans
  • sprinkles or candies


Sift icing sugar into a bowl; add enough water to make a spreadable paste. Add a few drops of yellow food colouring to get the right funny face colour.

Spread a teaspoon of icing onto the biscuit and then use the lollies to make the faces. When the face is done, use the sprinkles for hair, beards and a moustaches.




  • These are so much fun! Mine were very boring and ‘normal’; the kids were very creative and added eyebrows, rosy cheeks, big noses and ears – all in fascinating colour combinations!
  • The biscuits will keep in an air-tight container for a few days if you want to make them in advance
  • A great way to combine party food with a party activity.
