Would anyone like a spot of tea?

At the last minute, I decided to make some Royal Wedding inspired cookies! I have wanted to do some royal icing flowers on cookies for quite some time (specifically as a gift for my mom), and I thought this was the perfect opportunity. My mom is attending a Royal Wedding viewing party at her friend's house (at 4am!), complete with gloves and fancy hats for attire! I decided on tea pots and hats, though I might have added tiaras if I had been able to find those cookie cutters! These cookies would be great for Mother's Day or a wedding shower too!

I definitely need to practice my royal icing flowers! It's been a while! I really enjoy making them though. I did each flower on a piece of wax paper on a flower nail, and let them dry in a flower former. Then when I was decorating the cookie, I placed the dry flower in the wet flood icing to adhere it to the cookie.

So tell me, are you going to get up early to watch?? I think we might be using our tivo, but I'm VERY excited to watch!


  1. You have the most steady hands of anyone I know. You could have been a surgeon, though that would have been decidedly less tasty.

  2. THESE ARE AWESOME! And omg, it's been too long since I've had one of your amazing cookies! Well done, these are beautiful.

  3. These are SO DELICATE and gorgeous! And the colors are perfectly delicate and gorgeous as well!
