Okay, so let us just know a bit about the ingredients. Firstly, yes, the biscuits ofcourse. Then we have the sugar, we need sugar for the icing. Icing sugar is always preferred but not to worry, you can use the simple powdered sugar. If you don't even have that, then, grind the granulated sugar and powder it. Next comes cocoa powder, if you dont have the cocoa powder, then keep the icing white or add in some color if available, Kids are gonna love it with any essence. 

Then comes in the fresh cream, again, if you dont have it, relax, take some unsalted butter. I have used home made white butter. So, lets begin with the recipe and first the ingredients..


30 Marie Biscuits

1 cup Water

2 tbsp Coffee powder

1/2 cup Home made White Butter

1 Cup Icing Sugar

1/4 cup  Cocoa Powder

2 to 3 drops Vanilla Essence


Firstly we will prepare the icing as it needs to rest in the fridge for 30 mins before applying.

So take the white butter in a bowl. The butter should be at room temperature.

Now, take the icing and apply all over the biscuit tower. No need for professional finishing of icing. Keep it messy, it looks good. Keep it in the freezer for an hour to make the icing firm.

Then after an hour when the icing is firm enough to handle, keep the biscuit tower in horizontal position so that the icing could be applied to the base.

After applying the icing to the base again keep it in the fridge for the icing to set.

The consistency of the icing should not be very runny else it will not set.

Do not leave the biscuit in coffee water for long else the biscuit would become very soft and get dissolved.

To get the desired consistency of icing if needed add some milk.
