We’ve been trying our hand at watercolour painting

The inspiration behind the sets

Many moons ago, inspired by all her gorgeous hand-painted cakes on Instagram, Rebecca headed down to The Big Smoke to attend one of Nevie Pie’s cake painting masterclasses. She spent the day being taught lots of amazing tips and tricks from a very talented bunch. She still favours the brushes she got from the class and would highly recommend attending one if you’re keen to get into food painting.

Since then, the Honeywell Bakes watercolour Pinterest board has been growing rapidly, and Becky has put her watercolour painting to the test. But, this time, she took to painting biscuits and now her and the team have honed their skills and created a whole new range of watercolour biscuits, with sets suitable for any occasion.

Don’t worry, we use edible paint which not only looks pretty, but doesn’t make a difference to our biscuits taste.

Get Well Soon Biscuit Pill Gift Set


Introducing the watercolour range…

  • Know a friend who is ill and needs some extra TLC? Perhaps these lovely hand-painted pills will cheer them up!
  • What to show someone a bit of extra love? I reckon these hand-painted (and gold-leafed) Splash of Pink biscuits will do the trick.
  • Is it a friend’s birthday and you want to show them how much they mean to you on their special day? Ensure they have a balloon with this pretty, intricate set.
  • Dying to ask your best mate to help you walk down the isle? Why not say it with something sweet? These should do the trick.
  • Know someone who has welcomed a new person into the world? Well, they definitely deserve a sweet treat after all that hard work! And what better way to say ‘well done’ and ‘hello’ than with these cute clouds.
  • And, last but certainly not least, because in retail Christmas feels like its jussssst around the corner (I know, I know, it’s months away but it’s our busiest time of the year so we have to be super prepared and organised) is our festive set – we aren’t launching it just yet for fear of scaring/annoying you lovely lot with Christmas chat too early, but look out on our Instagram for sneak peaks.

Which one is your favourite?

If you love watercolour and have an idea you don’t see here, we are more than happy to create bespoke sets. Just get in touch via email and we will go from there.

Hi! I just came across your page a few days ago when I was stalking Lauren Aston’s Instagram page 🙈…. I’m wondering if you do bespoke biscuits for my daughters 18th birthday? It’s just a little breakfast in the house that I’d be using them for but I think they’d make a gorgeous addition to the table 😍My theme is rose gold, blush and white….could you suggest anything? 🙈xxxx


Hi Lousie
Yes, we’d love to help! We’ve sent you an email 🙂

Terms and Conditions

About Us

This website is owned and operated by Rebecca Honeywell-Ward and Rosie Honeywell, trading as Honeywell Bakes.  Our address is The Grain Pit, Elkington Lodge, Welford, Northamptonshire, NN6 6HE.

How to Order

To place an order with us please visit the shop section of our website.  If you’d like to place a bespoke order then please contact us by calling 01858 571237 or emailing hellohoney@honeywellbakes.com.  We accept all major credit and debit cards though a secure Paypal link.

All correspondence will be in English.  We will attempt to contact you as soon as possible if we suspect that you have made an error whilst ordering.  Please see the cancellation section below for information on how to cancel an order.

Stock and Design

We make all our cakes and biscuits by hand, so at busy times of the year such as Christmas and Easter, we sometimes run out – so we have to say that everything on our website is offered for sale subject to availability. If we can’t supply what you want, we promise to let you know as soon as we can.

Sometimes we have to change the recipe or the shape and design of a product, if we make any major changes we will let you know before completing your order.  As all of our biscuits are handmade, designs, colour and shapes may vary from biscuit to biscuit.


We include an ingredient list with all our products.  Please contact us if you have queries regarding ingredients or allergens. Allergens including nuts, sesame, eggs, dairy, gluten and soya are all ingredients used in our kitchen premises. We therefore can never guarantee that traces of these allergens will not be found in other foods.


We deliver all items via Royal Main first class post unless otherwise stated.  Delivery is currently included in the price of all items available in our shop.

We will attempt delivery to an address and postcode as you enter it and cannot accept liability for late or failed delivery due to an incorrect address. If you are unsure of an address or postcode please check it using a postcode finder.

We’re unable to guarantee delivery dates for Royal Mail services as it’s outside of our control. Please note that if there is no one available to collect the delivery and it is not collected or redelivered quickly, the quality of the product may be slightly compromised and we cannot be held responsible for this.


If you want to cancel your order please be quick, as once we’ve baked your items we can’t offer a refund or take cancellations.  Cancellation must usually be made within 24 hours of placing your order, and we may bake your biscuits straight away depending on the time that your order is placed, which would mean that you cannot cancel your order.  To cancel an order please email us on hello honey@honeywellbakes.com or call 01347 833236.  This cancellation policy does not affect your legal rights — for example, if goods are faulty or misdescribed.

Gift Message

We reserve the right not to send a gift message that may contain offensive and/or inappropriate content.

Bespoke orders

A 50% deposit is due at the time of order, with the remaining balance due no later than one month before the delivery date.  When an order is placed we will block off time to complete it and may also order special supplies.  For this reason neither the deposit nor the final balance is refundable.


If you’re unhappy with any of our items, please send them back to us. But please do so within three days of delivery, so we can get a fair idea of the problem.  Please make complaints to Rebecca Honeywell-Ward or Rosie Honeywell by emailing hellohoney@honeywellbakes.com.  The address for returns is Honeywell Bakes, The Grain Pit, Elkington Lodge, Welford, Northamptonshire, NN6 6HE.  We will refund the return postage if we find a problem.  Please package the goods carefully to ensure that they reach us in the same condition that they left you.

These terms apply to your order.  We may change our terms and conditions at any time, so please do not assume that the same terms will apply to future orders.
