6. Iced Easter biscuits

As with the iced Easter flower cookies, you can dress these up with different coloured icing, or add chocolate chips or silver balls. For something really unique, take the wooden end of a match, dip in the food colouring and create pretty patterns. Be sure to help little ones with this when handling matches.
