I wanted to make my cousin's son some birthday cupcakes, but was worried about transporting them. I therefore decided to make some cupcake shaped cookies instead. After the success of my afternoon tea biscuits, I decided to stick with shortbread cookies which I then decorated with fondant icing as before. I had bought a birthday cupcake shaped cookie cutter on a recent visit to New York. I then decorated them with little fondant stars, as I didn't want them to look too girly!
