These came out wonderful and very professional looking.I felt very pleased with the results.I think my icing was slightly runny so I may add more icing sugar next time.My children loved them!!!!!!!!!!! Thankyou-really worth while to make-I will be baking these again soon!!!!!!
These are so very good and easy to make. I like lemon, but I don't like it to be overwhelming. These were just perfect having the lemon in the frosting. I will make again!
