Picture of Quick and Easy Clam Biscuits (Cookies)

This is my first Instructable so please be kind. My son recently celebrated his 3rd Birthday and all he wanted was an Octonauts themed party. So on top of all the games, cakes and other treats I made some of these Clam Biscuits. These are not my original idea, as a have seen several variations on the web.

So here is my method, and I hope you enjoy.

Thanks to my husband (http://www.instructables.com/member/scooter76/) for introducing me to in Instructables and helping with the great party.

Step 1: What you will need

Picture of What you will need
Cookies (any will do, but make sure they are round)
Pink icing (I bought some pre-made from the shop)
Candy eyes (purchased mine on ebay)
Round white candy for the pearl (what ever you can find in the shop)

No tools are required

Step 2: The meat of the cookie

Flip the cookie upside down and coat the majority in pink icing. At the back, add a little extra as this will help hold the top on later

Step 3: The Pearl

Add the round white sweet at the front of the cookie in the icing

Step 4: Add the Head

Place another cookie on top, and use the extra icing at the back to help hold it together

Step 5: And then they could see....

add a little icing to the back of the eyes and add to top of the cookie

Step 6: Enjoy

These turned out great, and you could make so many variations of your own. In total I might have spent £5 for about 25 clam biscuits.

Very nice! At first I thought clam cookies- yuck! But then I was curious, and found this was totally different than my imagined cookie.
mrs.mcleod (author)  artfulann2 years ago
I guess I could have worded the title better. Just to make it clear, no fishy taste in these cute cookies :)
I agree, cute cookies and the fruit skewers look great too! I also like the shark jello cups because it reminds me of how bettas are kept at the pet store.

Taste much better then Bettas (hehe). Shark jello was pretty simple, hardest part was sourcing shark candy..... thanks for the comment.

Did you make the cake too? Nice rainbow fruit skewers :)
mrs.mcleod (author)  Jayefuu2 years ago
Husband made the cake (first timer) and I made the fruit skewers. Was such a fun party to bake for. Now we have to wait a whole year to do it again....
