My daughter, Natali, made these gorgeous bikkies (cookies) for her daughter's kindy Christmas party. She told me she was inspired by the Funny Face ones I'd decorated for a children's party in my cookbook, Entertaining at Home (Lansdowne). They're so easy and such fun to make especially if you get the kids to help.
To make the Royal Icing: Lightly whisk egg white and lemon juice together in a bowl. Gradually add the icing sugar, whisking until smooth and combined.
Spread icing evenly over biscuits using a small spatula (it helps to dip it first in warm water).
Place eyes and nose in place using M&M's or Smarties. For the beards, sprinkle with 100s &1000s. Leave until set (the icing will set quite hard).
