Did you celebrate Christmas Jumper Day today? It’s one of my favourite days in December. We’ve celebrated it for the past few years since finding out more about it. Today both my children got the chance to wear a Christmas jumper to school in return for making a donation to Save The Children.
This year my daughter has a gorgeous jumper featuring a unicorn wearing a Christmas hat – all in sequins. My son has an Elf jumper (which I would steal if it was in my size!). My husband has a Star Wars jumper, I’m hoping he’ll wear it when we go to watch The Last Jedi tomorrow, and even I have a favourite Christmas jumper.
I thought it would be fun to make some Christmas jumper biscuits and I found a brilliant Christmas Jumper Shortbread Kit in Asda to help me do this.
The kit contained everything you needed, including a handy template to cut out and use. It would be easy to make these biscuits without the kit.
First I made the shortbread and cut out my jumper shapes. There was some extra dough so I cut out some stars too.
I baked them in the oven and they didn’t spread too much.
I left them to cool whilst I prepared the red sugar paste icing. I rolled it out and used my template to cut out more jumper shapes. I attached them to each biscuit with a little of the white icing pen, and decorated them reindeer faces with more of the white icing.
These would be perfect for enjoying on Christmas jumper day. We actually ate ours a few days ago – I pretended that our Elf on the Shelf made and left them for the children to enjoy!
