Beat the butter and the sugar together until smooth.
Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste. Turn on to a work surface and gently roll out until the paste is 1cm/½in thick.
Cut your shortbread into rounds or fingers slightly larger than the shaped wafer toppers you are going to use and place onto a baking tray. chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.
While your biscuits are in the fridge chilling roll out your ready to roll icing onto a lightly sugared surface.
Cut your icing into rounds or fingers the same size or shape as the wafer toppers you are going to use and place onto a dusted sheet of grease proof paper.
With a pastry brush lightly brush your egg white over your icing shaped (you will only need to do this lightly just so your icing shines).
Gently place your wafer toppers onto your brushed icing shaped and then turn them over onto a dry clean side with the image facing down.
Bake your short bread in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to cool on a wire rack.
When your short bread has cooled lightly brush with egg white and place your iced toppers on top pat down and set aside for 20 minutes to set
