What could be better than a fry-up on Father's Day? A fry-up made of biscuits, of course! A different kind of breakfast in bed, it still has all the best bits, including bacon, eggs, sausages, beans and a cup of tea on the side, in tasty biscuit form, presented in a lovely keepsake tin. We are huge fans of Biscuiteers; the hand-iced biscuits are undeniably unique and taste exquisite. We also love that the box can be reused for all of your Dad's useful bits and bobs.
