Picture of Make your own biscuit cutter from a tealight
I was making some Kuih Bangkit at home last weekend and couldn't find the right biscuit cutter for it in the shops here in the UK. The biscuit cutters in the shops were all too big, I needed the shape to be bite sized or else the biscuits would break easily.

Traditionally, they come in the shape of a small flower.

So I decided to make one myself using materials easily found at home. I looked around my room, trying to find something I could use. Then I noticed this: a tealight.

Step 1: Clean

Get a tealight, remove candle from it. Clean it of any residual wax.

GENIUS! Probably works best with non-oily candles...I have some tealights that even after a through cleaning would still be slick and scented...unless anyone wants evergreen flavored biscuits.

Now I just need your recipe for kuih bangkit! I LOVE coconut. ;__;

I have a rosemary shortbread recipe that is wonderful as an appetizer, with a bit of gouda on top. It needs a bite-sized cookie - this fits the bill exactly! AND you could thin slice the cheese (or several types of cheese) and cut it with the cutter.... That would be a really nice presentation. Thanks!
Pure genius! I Plan on giving this a try with clay.
I love this-so creative and innovative! Awesome job!
