From gold embroidered royal iced flowers to brocaded cameo decor topped treats, Amber Spiegal has a real knack for baking and decorating Victorian-inspired cookies in her aptly named Etsy store, SweetAmbs.

The Baking and Pastry Arts graduate at The Culinary Institute of America in New York is renowned for her signature orange zest, vanilla bean and cardamom recipe that she finishes with vanilla royal icing. I’d bet my pennies these cookies taste as delicious as they look.
