Whats the best way you have found to do dog bones? I'm having a toss up between RI and gum paste. I need to do a pile of dog bones. If you prefer gum paste wound a cutter or just molding work better do you think?

Thanks muchly!

There are dog bone cookie cutters. What I would do is make the cookies, if you can't find the cutters just make a templet. After baking you can coat them in white or dark chocolate, or even royal icing. Hope this helps. thumbs_up.gif

I'll go for the GP because RI is very fragil and can break easily and I'll do them freehand molding, they don't have to be perfect, they're bones!
I forgot to say, if you do them with RI one side is going to be flat instead of bone shaped.

Id do gumpaste or fondant. RI bones would probably be flat, right? I think something 3d molded out of gumpaste would look nicer

I agree with the other....the gumpaste will be much more three dimensional and realistic looking. Post pics!!

Mine were made out of gumpaste. I just shaped it and molded it into the size I wanted.

Oh yes gumpaste is the way to go. Good luck.

I made bones for Halloween out of meringue. Pretty simple, baked, and looked like real bones. Think it was a Martha Stewart recipe from one of her magazines.
