I have and order for cat cookies. The cat is full bodied and laying down. She wants them to have the starburst/sunburst pattern (she called it tye dyed) on all of them.
She wants me to pick out what I think will use best color-wise. Any ideas on how to "cute them up" ?
Thanks in advance,
. . . if I was doing these, I think I would try to fashion them after these cookies by bobwonderbuns' . . .
. . . and then I would make a big cheezy cheshire cat grin on them . . .
I would use the pattern and apply it to look like fur. You can then use it all over the body and ears but leave the head/face so that you can do the facial features. Good colors would be black/orange, grey/light orange, black/white, brown/light orange, black and small amounts of purple and pink
Just make it look like fur, Ice them the base color then place a small drop of the accent colors and use a toothpick to draw the lines.
I would assume the starburst pattern she is referring to is a tabby cat. I would just use photos of actual cats as inspiration for colors and lines, and you can cute them up with a nice happy smile or a bow around their tale or something. I hope this helps!
Thanks for the great advise. I had done some flowers with starbursts that she liked. She didn't care that they wouldn't really look like cats.
I ended up going with the cheshire cat idea. I made them the same colors of Disney's Cheshire. I did all sorts of different patterns and then cat faces with big smiles. I thought they looked kinda dumb, but my customer loved them so I guess that's all that matters.
Thanks again for the great advise!
. . . did you get any pictures to post here . . . we would love to see your finished product (and yes, the customer is alway right ) . . .
