For the Shortbread

  2. Beat the butter and castor sugar together until light and creamy.
  3. Add the flour and cornflour and mix to a smooth dough.
  4. Roll the dough out onto lightly floured surface until 5mm thick.
  5. Cut with cookie cutter into heart and round shapes. Place on greased oven tray and bake for 10 - 12 minutes until a light straw colour. Leave to cool.

  2. Add a pinch of cream of tartar. Continue to whisk in by hand until well blended.
  3. Add a teaspoon at a time of the icing sugar and continue to work in well until fully dissolved. Note: If too much icing sugar is added at one time, the icing becomes thick and heavy.
  4. Continue whisking in icing sugar until a medium peak forms.
  5. Mix half of the royal icing with red food colouring and keep the other plain. Decorate as per picture.
