In the pink

What does one take to a Hen party in Kenya?! With limited retail outlets here to buy sexy undies or novelty toys I had to resort to a homemade present. I did toy with the idea of making a lacy garter but my recent baking obsession, inspired by Great British bake off, promoted me to make lingerie biscuits. Here are the results of my afternoons work!!

Hope there are not too many blushes when I give them to the bride to be!!

I forgot to say that I had to improvise a homemade biscuit cutter from a tin. I just cut out both ends with a tin opener and then squished it into a a kind of heart shape!
