Happy Australia Day!


Happy Australia Day!
Australia Day, the 26th January, is the anniversary of the arrival in Australia of the first 11 convict ships from Great Britain.  This day also celebrates everything about Australia and what we all love about being Australian.

What a great excuse to make cookies!
So yesterday, Mum and I whipped up some sugar cookie dough and royal icing tinted yellow and green.  This was our first try at flooding biscuits and I think they all turned out fantastic.


Kangaroos and Koalas...



Flowers...


And delicately feathered cookies too!


Not only were they pretty, but they were yummy as well.


I hope everyone had a great Australia Day!  I certainly did.
