Party Cookies

Cupcake & Party Hat shaped cookies, for a family birthday party.
Also I tried out a new icing recipe, rather than my usual royal icing. Icing recipe found here. Not sure how I feel about this. The icing didn't dry any shinier than royal, in my opinion, but maybe that's because I had to substitute half honey half water for the "light corn syrup" (which we don't get here in Australia)? Also it does mean honey-flavoured icing is non-negotiable, and whilst it tasted fine, I don't think I'd want to do it every single time. Ideas for other substitutes, anyone?

I do think this is a nice icing, I think maybe I'm just used to the way royal icing behaves now, so I'm a little more comfortable with it. I will probably try this icing out again one day (it IS less mucking around than royal), especially if someone has any suggestions for light corn syrup substitutes...
Also I was quite impressed with the Muffin, who took one look at the party hat cookie shape, and said "Mummy I am going to make a fairy out of that." And she simply had to do a cupcake too:

Not bad for a three year old, I reckon! :o)
