Roll out on a lightly floured surface.
Using a 2 1/2 in/6.5 cm fluted cutter, stamp out sixteen shapes.
Place on a greased baking sheet, cook in the oven for 15-20 mins.
Cool on a wire rack.
Roll out the fondant icing and, using a 2 in/5 cm flower-shaped cutter, stamp out sixteen shapes.
Brush the biscuits with honey and secure a flower on each.

Secure these on top of fondant covered biscuits with water.
Allow them to dry thoroughly before hanging on the Christmas tree.
