    As far as I remember I think Ive never used milo to make any cakes or anything other than my usual milo hot drink. This sound wonderful and as usual you shaping it out looking very cute.

    • Victoria Bakes (January 24, 2015)

      Hi, i would say cornstarch or tapioca starch (i will use the former).

      hope this helps.

    Hi! May I know how long did u chill the cookie dough? Mine is too soft to cut with the cutter.

    • Victoria (August 11, 2016)

      Hi, I could have chilled for around 20-30 mins. You need to check on consistency of dough before removing to slice. This cookie spreads a bit so ideal that it goes into the oven well shaped up and not room temp
