Biscuits: taste vs. aesthetics?

Tea & BiscuitsWhen it comes to biscuits, my motto seems to be “the plainer the better” However this doesn’t make for great illustration. Favourites such as shortbread and the digestive biscuit can all look just a little beige; a higher sugar content seems to be the prerequisite for biscuits to look pleasing on the page. It’s a little like tea and coffee: the latter smells great, but when it comes to drinking it, tea wins hand down for me.
