Victorian Dog Cookies

One of my aunts is a dog-lover to the extreme, so I made her these dog cookies. The images are from Victorian die-cut scraps. The baby (he's 2.5, but I still think of him as "the baby") liked the little white terrier and the border collie. I like the little cairn terrier and the yorkie... and the Jack Russell (if that's a Jack Russell, I'm not sure). My aunt will doubtless like the long-haired dachshund, because she had a mix who looked very much like him.

I made the cookies with Jesicake's Gluten-Free Version of Lilaloa's Chocolate Cookies using a 2.5" round cutter (it's more like a 2.25" usable area, because of the fluting) from the Ateco 4-Piece Round Fluted Cookie Cutter Set, but any 2.5" fluted round or 2.25" plain-edged round cutter would do for the images. Iced with white, border piped with a #16 star tip using super-stiff icing.

The wafer papers are available for purchase in my store.
