Rhi is a mum of two and the lady behind Rhicreative. A stationery, gifts and homewares designing powerhouse, this amazing mama is also a biscuit decorating force. That’s a pretty awesome flex or feather to have in your creative cap.

Take a look at these gorgeous biscuits. You’ll see that it’s all in the manipulation of lolly and biscuit placement and copious amounts of coloured icing.

1. Spotty ladybug biscuits
Have you ever seen a cuter bunch of spotty ladybugs? We think not! Look at those googly eyes and Mini Oreo biscuit heads. Adorably delicious.

Perfect for any Lego Master or Lego birthday party, these Lego brick biscuits are a CINCH to make. Just match your Smarties with your icing colour and get decorating!
3. Rainbow caterpillar biscuits!
Normally a pest in the garden, there’s nothing annoying about these pretty rainbow caterpillars! Chocolate Melts for a face and antennae made from musk sticks. These guys really are cute friends, not foes!
4. Classic funny face biscuits
The classic bikkie we often see at our favourite cafe, now you can make your own at home! Choose a round biscuit (like an Arnott’s Marie biscuit) and create a whole family of quirky faces using icing as the glue. So much fun!

Perfect for celebrating the Aussies in the Olympics, Australia Day or even an Australiana themed birthday party, these cuddly koala biscuits are nearly too sweet to eat. Alas, who really can resist a Clinkers nose?
