"Eat Me" biscuits

"Soon her eye fell upon a little glass box lying underneath the table. She opened it and found in it a very small cake, on which the words "EAT ME" were beautifully marked in currants"
                                                                  - Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Scene from Disney's Alice in Wonderland (1951)

Alice discovered the 'Eat Me' biscuits when trying to grow again in size after drinking the 'Drink Me' potion.  These are an important plot device and memorable food item within the book so I have included them here on my Mad Hatter's tea party table just in case anyone drinks too much of the shrinking potion!
I designed these biscuits to match the pastel colours I used in Alice's 'Merry Un-birthday' cake and gave them a pretty vintage floral design.  There are fourteen biscuits (or cookies) in total, eight heart shaped and six circular, each with a separate design and colour scheme.  The look I wanted to achieve here is a fondant topped biscuit with finely piped lettering and designs.  This is my own Dinky Diner version of the 'Eat Me' biscuits!
The biscuits are fixed to a large pink ceramic serving plate.
