Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the eggs and the Natural Vanilla Extract. If the mixture starts to curdle, add a little flour. Fold in the remaining flour with a spoon.
Place spoonfuls of the mixture into the baking cases and bake for 15-20 minutes until well risen and firm to the touch.Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a cooling rack.
Divide the icing into balls. Add Gel Food Colour a drop at a time to create different colours of icing.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the coloured icing into thin sheets. If the icing is slightly sticky, dust with icing sugar.
Use cookie cutters or a knife to create flower shapes with the icing.
