We became true "biscuiteers" and Biscuiteers fans this trip. They have two locations - we made a reservation for their "DIY icing cafe" session as mommy/child in the quaint and famously posh Notting Hill neighborhood.

They offer private parties, afternoon teas, formal classes, and a gift shop full of already insanely made biscuits and gifts. They also ship around the world from online ordering if one can't make it over here in person.

During our biscuit icing affair, they supplied us with trays of quality biscuits (we got to choose 3 each person) in many different shapes, many fun colors of icing ready to go in icing pastry bags and major inspiration as we were surrounded by the extensive collection of professionally decorated biscuits for sale. They even packaged our finished creations in pretty boxes and ribbons (the ones we didn't end up eating) and cleaned up our entire mess. A request to make sure we come back next time has been made already!

And if you make it there on a Saturday like we did, don't forget to check out Portobello Market right around the corner. You'll have to make your way past all the tourists at the popular Notting Hill Bookstore but we found some good snacks and gifts making our way to a favorite street there, Westbourne Grove where you can find more fun shops and restaurants.
