No, I didn't make cookies that look like my children (although I've thought of it!! :-)). Instead, I'm talking about my 4-legged babies, Aries and Nikki.
|Nikki is on the left, and Aries on the right. It's hard to get a good photo of them!|
To be honest, Aries is my son's dog, and Nikki (his daughter) is kinda-sorta my dog. Although, I share her with my own daughter on occasion.
|Awww, a boy and his dog!! :-)|
Aries is a long-haired Dachshund, and Nikki is half Doxie, half Bichon. (She looks nothing like a Bichon, dontcha think?)
Anyway, in my latest order from Karen's Cookies, I got the most adorable Dachshund cutter, along with a fire hydrant cutter. After all, how can you make dog cookies without a fire hydrant??
I had to make these right away. It was imperative, it was a necessity, it was a sugar and flour situation!!!So, I made the dough, baked them, and flooded them with brown icing (I use the "Sort Of" royal icing by The Decorated Cookie):
Then I dressed them up with some sweaters, and cute bows for Nikki, and they ended up like this:
And like this:
I think they're kinda cute!!! But not as cute as my love bugs!!!!!!!!!!
Love and Sweetness,
