Cookie-a-Day - Day 5

When you make so many cookies, some are sure to NOT turn out as well as you'd like.  I guess.  Or so I keep telling myself.  :)  I almost didn't post this one, but heck, who hasn't had a bad cookie day, right?  And I learned a couple of lessons on this one, which made it worth doing.

So first, my inspiration.  This is my buddy.  I love him sooo much!  :)  We got Farley when he was six weeks old.  He's a pure bred Australian Shepard.  He is such an amazing dog. 

He's a blue merl, so I thought his coloring would be interesting to try to do in a cookie.  Yeah, definitely interesting!  And here's the end result.....

One of the main things I would do differently next time is to have a thicker consistency of royal icing.  I gave him a flooded look, and I think if it had been thicker, I could have used a paintbrush to pull "fur" from him, and he would've looked alot better.  I think flooding an animal cookie is only good for a short haired animal.  Or at least that's what I think now!  :) 

Stay tuned for Day 6 tomorrow....I'm working on an idea that my friend Diane sent me that is just adorable!!!
