Birthday Sugar Cookies - Cupcakes and Presents

It is always nice to surprise someone with sugar cookies for their birthday. I made these as an extra gift for my mother-in-law, and I definitely think she was surprised. I chose cupcakes and presents in light pastels for her, but I love that you can personalize them anyway you like.

I used Sweet SugarBelle's recipe for the cookies and this recipe for the royal icing. I'm still working on getting the ratio of almond extract to vanilla correct though. I like a hint of almond but my husband prefers the lemon-vanilla sugar cookies. So play around with flavorings because I'm sure they'll be a hit no matter what you choose.
