Macmillan Cookie Cutters

In celebration of the millions of people around the UK who make the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning a record breaking fundraising event, we have built the British skyline entirely from biscuits!

It took 25,000 individual biscuits to create the British skyline. If you don’t have an oven big enough to create that kind of landscape for your own coffee morning, use our handy cutting guide to create a biscuit version of your local landmark.

Whether you live near Edinburgh castle, regularly travel across the Clifton suspension bridge or can see the Shard from your office, it’s you that makes the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning what it is.

We couldn’t do it without you, so wherever you are in the UK – thank you!
