Cloudformation cross account access to add DNS record to route 53

I have a cloudformation script that launches an EC2 instance and and adds it to AD, Target group, ALB, Route 53, etc. 

Some ec2s need to be added to a a route 53 domain in another account. 

Has anyone use cloudformation for cross account DNS record before? This is a small number number of resources but it is a critical business case.

Generally anything you can do in the console you can do with the API.  But how to invoke that with CloudFormation wold need some thinking about.

I think this is one that you will need to research in the the Doco or AWS support Forum.
