C’mon ENG – ER – LAND!!!
It’s what every dad in the land is shouting right now – second half of England vs Ukraine.
So, inspired by sweetsugarbelle, this was my first attempt at Royal Iced Sugar Cookies – and why not? What’s not to celebrate ‘royally’?! And to be honest, I was so awed by sweetsugarbelle’s cookies, we just HAD to have a go. Not the Royal ‘We’. More the sort of ‘we’ that comes in the form of three boys in the house.
(How come sweetsugarbelle makes it look so darn easy???!!!)
I definitely need to work on my outlining icing – it’s harder than it looks, as you’ll see when you look at the next photograph!
Can you see the three lions in there?
Right, the recipe. It’s dead easy and delicious too. They certainly went down a treat, especially with the dad that doesn’t even like cakes and biscuits! And if you don’t try it for the taste, try it for the hilarity of trying to royal ice as neatly as sweetsugarbelle!!! :)
Father’s Day Biscuits (Royal Iced Sugar Cookies) Makes about 12 – 15

If you go on to sweetsugarbelle’s website, she has amazing tutorials for making royal icing. I won’t tell you how to do it here – I’m going to direct you over to her….
ENJOY! I have a game to watch…..
