The Royal Wedding is coming..

I just loved playing with this cookie cutter. The designs are endless and my daughter had some fun helping eat them too.

In response to the royal wedding coming up I wanted to try my hand at making a 'royal' themed cookie and so these are the combinations I came up with. The cookies are a beautiful lemon zest shortbread with maroon royal icing decorations (although they look a bit pink). And the bottom cookie on the right is embossed fondant icing with gold lustre dust!
