London Cookies!

I have a little obsession.



It started when I was a little bitty thing and my mom gave me a set of Princess Diana paper dolls.



I spent hours cutting out her dresses...
...wedding dress, 'riding in the carriage' dress, 'having tea' dress, 'hunting in the country' dress....
...and imagining such a glamorous life that 
certainly would only be possible living in England.



Joe and I were there once when we were first married.



It was a crazy quick stopover on the way to visit family far, far, faaaaaar away, 
but we made the best of it.

We had a traditional lunch at a pub,
saw Les Miserables that night,
and were back on a plane to continue our journey the next day.

I've always said if I had the opportunity to live overseas for a year that's where I'd go.




Until then,
pass the biscuits!





A new friend asked for sets of London cookies to help her thank 
some lovely co-workers for their hard work and dedication.











She couldn't sign the cookies herself, so I piped her signature on one for her!












We were very lucky that it didn't rain while Joe and I were there,
but I have heard its smart to always have an umbrella.












We did get to ride in a big black taxi though!














If I ever get to  When I get there, I have some new cookie friends I need to visit!

Hi Stephanie!
Hi Michelle!










Someday....


Oh!!!

Do think there are Princess Kate paper dolls?!





Thanks for stopping by! Lizy B

  2. Love those cookies! They're so pretty. I'm a big fan of England too. The accent itself is alluring, isn't it? I think you should definitely welcome the royal baby by making some pretty British-inspired baby shower cookies :)

  3. Oh, how I love these cookies! You are an anglophile, my friend, just like me! You don't want to get me started talking about the UK, but you can check out these Union Jack Cupcake Toppers that I made. :)

  7. You know we have a long personal history of being anglophiles (and celtophiles on my part as well) in our family. Love your biscuits! Especially the phone box. I have an extensive cabinet of English teas--ask your mother. My favorite at the moment is Scottish Breakfast. They would go so well with your treats!

  14. Now, how about Kensington Palace where Kate and WIlls
    will live?

  17. I LOVE these cookies! I made an attempt to make a dbl-decker bus during the Olympics, but it didn't turn out; yours is perfect! I used to have a definite "thing" for ALL things British during the "British Invasion" in the 60's (long before you were born), especially The Beatles!

  18. Unbelievable. Your cookies are just gorgeous. I love the UK. Great picture of you in front of the pretty pub/cafe with all the flowers! Living overseas sounds romantic, but 4 years in the North West of France was hard for me....especially the gray gray weather (sometimes 7 months or longer) and the rain. I am from California, so it's a tough adjustment :) It was in the 60s here again today and not a cloud in the sky. I do love it there though!! Your cookies are so pretty it's be hard to eat them!!

  20. These are Fab :)

    I love the flags! The colours are great, my biscuits always come out a bit wishy-washy when I paint on them :(

    I'm from the UK (although not London) and I'm smiling reading this and the comments because I feel exactly the same way about the USA! I would swap any day!

  24. Lady... you are talented beyond words! One of my best friends just moved to London after Christmas, so we have had London on the brain a lot at our house. I'll have to ask my friend if she has seen any Kate paper dolls for you!

    Take care,
