    To decorate, roll out half of the white sugar paste and cut smaller flower shapes out of it. Then attach to the biscuit using a small amount of water. Colour the other half of the sugar paste icing with pink food colouring and then roll out and cut out flower shapes. Chocolate sweets such as smarties can be used as the centre of the flower. You could also simply, pipe around the outline of the cookie using designer icing and attach chocolate sweets in the centre.
