    To make the glaze, sift confectioner's sugar into a bowl. Gradually add the milk, whisking constantly, until you have a glossy mixture that is not too thick but not to runny. Add to a piping bag, or into a freezer bag, which you can then cut a small corner off. Arrange the cooled shortbread close together and pipe over them all in diagonals to glaze. To finish, decorate with flowers or edible glitter.
