King of Love icebox cookies

some ugly pack of poker cards eh? 。:゚(。ノω\。)゚・。

… as you can see, some of the moustache did not turn out nicely… plus, the love looked more like a V (V for Victoria)… and! i forgot to roll the outline for the eyes, so the king look as if he has really small eyes… focus V focus V!!! (`・ω・´)ゞ

these cookies took me more than 2 hours to complete. the mere need to prepare the individual portions took an hour (because i was trying to be as accurate as i could on measurement).. they are round about the size of a deck of poker cards…
