21 days of delicious with a Harck & Heart DIY cookie kit

We recieved this yummolicious DIY box of 21 German ginger biscuits from Harck & Heart.

What is inside the box?

The luxurious biscuits are pre-baked and beautifully packaged.

Inside the box, the kit contains everything you need to decorate the biscuits.

  • Icing sugar
  • Craft sticks to mix and spread icing
  • 2 containers to mix and store icing
  • Chocolate vermicelli
  • Rainbow sprinkles
  • Assorted sprinkles
  • Bag of sweets

There are even instructions, so if like me you are not to sure how to make the royal icing correctly, to decorate biscuits you are easily guided.

Icing your biscuits

This is the first success I’ve personally had with icing shaped biscuits. ( I may need a bit more practice but it was tons of fun) and I was suprised at how easy it was to mix the royal icing.

Just add a little water or lemon juice to your icing sugar.

When decorating the biscuits,I chose just to use the white icing, but you could make any colours by just adding your own colouring.

Although we were supplied with craft sticks to ice the biscuits, I found that by giving Hamish a clean paint brush he was able to ice his biscuits with less mess.


The 21 biscuits are packaged in pairs for freshness and to allow you to either decorate one a day or all in one go.

We enjoyed guessing each packets theme.

With cute themes like:

  • dinosaurs
  • tea party
  • ninjas
  • cars
  • dogs
  • Gingerbread people
  • Emoji faces
  • and princess

These delicious ginger biscuits cater for the whole family.

Decorating the biscuits

Theres no right or wrong way to decorate these biscuits and your imagination is the limit.

Allowing you to make them as fancy, plain or sweet as you prefer.

There is more than enough icing supplied and it’s advisable to mix up small amounts as you go, as not to waste.

We also chose to separate the sweets as I found it easier for Hamish to decorate his creations with the sweets separated into smaller containers. ( Although I’m still sure he ate more than he decorated with.)


Hamish was incredibly excited to make his own biscuits and went to town nibbling sweets and decorating his tea time treats as soon as I opened the box.

After weeks of being cooped up inside this was just the right distraction we needed to lift our moods and introduce some fun into our week.

The kit is easy to use and would be wonderful

  • for a family night, with each family member decorating their own dessert.
  • At a birthday party take home treat,each guest could make one to take home.
  • As a luxurious gift to family or friends to tell them you are thinking of them.
  • As a fun activity to break lockdown bordom.

Even my teen, Ronan jumped on board to let his creativity loose and create his own fancy treats.

Taste test

But the proof is always in the tasting and not only were these biscuits fresh, they were delicious.

This really was the most fun in a box and just the thing we needed to beat the lockdown bordom.
