Makers of delicious handmade, iced biscuits available online and in major retailers

Website: www.biscuiteers.co.uk

PR expert Harriet and catering pro Stevie are bringing pretty, handmade, iced biscuit collections to the masses through their online shop and major retailers such as Harrods and Selfridges.

Founded in September 2007, the idea for Biscuiteers came about when the pair realised that despite their popularity in the States, iced gift biscuits were practically unknown in the UK. Now they have five full-time staff, 15 shift-working icers, and big plans to develop their wedding division over the coming year.
