How to Make


  1. Mix together the butter, icing sugar, milk and vanilla extract with an electric whisk or wooden spoon until it is light and fluffy.
  2. Separate the buttercream into 3 bowls. Add pink, purple and blue food colourings to each bowl. Then place each colour of buttercream into different piping bags.
  3. Take a small amount of the white fondant icing and roll it into a ball, make as many fondant balls as clam cookies you are making.
  4. Spray the edible shimmer spray onto the fondant balls and let dry.
  5. Pipe a swirl of buttercream onto a Viennese biscuit and then place a fondant ball in the centre, nearer the front of the biscuit. Next place a plain biscuit on top of the buttercreamed biscuit. Do this with each colour on as many biscuits as you wish.
  6. Finish by dusting the edible silver shimmer dust on the top of the biscuit, then enjoy!
