I have a friend who owns a kennel and is asking me to do some cookies in different dog breeds for her to give to her clients, for christmas gifts. Rather than doing the body profile of the dog I would really just like to do a straight on view of the face any suggestions on how to start? I had even thought about just doing a circle cookie base and using icing to make the face. I am pretty new to the decorating world so the juices haven't been flowing very long... any help is much appreciated ! Thanks in advance!

If you do the round, you can print picture of the dog you want (I use card stock paper), cut it out, then trace around that onto cookie with edible marker, outline and then color in. That way you can get the shape you need, and go from there. That's what I did no my longhorn and say ahhh cookies. Oh, A bichon and bassett would be fun. (I have one of each) Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Another idea for using a stencil on a round cookie: make the stencil of the body and do it as a silhouette. You can make the silhouette any color you want. It would be easier, as there wouldn't be a lot of detail required.

Here is a picture of a dog you are welcome to make a pattern from. This one happens to be my American Hairless Terrier, but a lot of the Terriers have the same general structure. Since he is hairless, the photo has a nice clean line for making a pattern.
