Terrier Puppy Cookies
I am a cat person. It's not that I dislike dogs. In fact I used to have one- a beagle named Homer who was patient with my children, a master thief with unattended dinner plates, and smelled like corn chips. I just like cats better- mostly because of their ability to be self sufficient for periods of time. Recently, I had a request to make cookies of wire fox terriers. Just one google search of these pups made my heart leap. So Stinkin' Cute. I just hoped that I could capture their adorableness in cookie form.
When looking at pictures of the terriers, three characteristics stood out to me: their muzzles, bushy eyebrows, and floppy ears. I wanted to make sure those three traits dominated the design. Here's how I made these pups!
I used these two cutters to make the terrier heads. I liked the shape of the bunny's face, but had to do something with those bunny ears. That's where the onesie came into play.
Looky here!!! If you don't have these two cutters to make this pup, you can get the cutter from That's A Nice Cookie Cutter! The cutter is called Wags, and he comes in a large and small size!
Use the bottom of the onesie to create the top of the terrier's head.
Then trim off the top half of each bunny ear. See how that turned out?
This doggy face could be used to make lots of other dog breeds just by changing up the colors or how much you trim the bunny ears before baking. I was so happy with how these turned out! They almost make me want to get a new dog. But I don't think the cat would be too happy about that. :)

I am loving your postings! But this one is close to my heart... I had a WFT as my first baby (fur baby)! Rocky taught my hubby and I so much about being parents. Thank you for the step by step!
