A few weeks ago I saw a fellow cookie decorator post pictures of teddy bear cookies she was decorating. I saw the “naked” cookie and didn’t see a teddy bear – I saw a dog with big (HUGE) ears in her cookie. That got me thinking about a couple that I know who are huge dog lovers who also have birthdays coming up. I decided I would make them birthday cookies based on these little doggies I pictured in my head.
I had a problem though. I didn’t have that teddy bear cookie cutter! I decided to use this baby cookie cutter from Karen’s Cookies and cut off part of the head (that just sounds terrible!).
I am not an artist so I usually look around for inspiration. I found no dogs that fit my design so I had to freehand it.
The first dog I completed was a shaggy dog. I used white piping icing with the grass Wilton tip shown in the picture below.
I saw Cookies with Character post these dinosaur cookies on Facebook. I fell in love with those cookies! I knew I had to use those bones in dog lover cookies!! Thank you Christa for sharing your idea!!
