Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 8 mins


  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 100g white caster sugar
  • 1 large free range egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 275g plain white flour
  • 400g icing sugar
  • food colouring
  • sugar flower


Pre-heat the oven to 190℃/375℉. Make sure you have all the right kitchen equipment to hand.

You’ll need:

  • Baking tray,
  • non-stick baking paper,
  • mixing bowl,
  • whisk,
  • cookie cutter,
  • wire rack,
  • sieve.


  1. Line the baking tray with the non-stick paper.
  2. Mix the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg and almond extract, bit by bit, until fully mixed in then stir in the flour until it becomes doughy.
  4. Lightly flour a surface and roll out the dough to around 1cm thick and use the cookie cutter to create the shape, carefully placing them on the baking tray.
  5. Leave in the oven for 8-12 minutes, remove, then leave for 5 minutes. After that, leave on a wire rack to cool.
  6. Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl and add the recommended amount of water. Add colouring.
  7. Use a knife or palette to smooth the icing onto the cooled biscuits and add the sugar flower before it sets.


Replace the icing with melted chocolate if you’re more of a cocoa fiend!

    So sweet, Lisa! Love those sugar flowers… and did you change the color scheme here? I’m on a different computer (travelling), so maybe it’s just the settings or something, but everything just looks so bright and cheery! Love it! xoxo

      Haven’t changed a thing, lol. Maybe the computer you’re using has different brightness, contrast or resolution settings making it look different. But I did intend for the site to look bright and cheery anyway so.. yay! 😆
