This may be a little off topic for these boards but I thought I would try. I have an opportunity to make dog cookies decorated to look like people cookies icon_lol.gif I am trying to figure out the best icing to use. I have read that royal icing and fondant are not harmful but I would rather make it from yogurt or carrob. I am trying to figure out a yogurt recipe or something that will dry and set up like royal icing. Anyone have any ideas? I was also thinking about taking cornstarch and subbing that for most of the powdered sugar in royal icing- do you think that would work?

I only use almond bark and carob to decorate my dog treats. And sometimes I'll color the almond bark to make a certain design. And I still use them sparingly - great quantities of them just aren't good for puppy tummies.

I wouldn't advise using cornstarch in place of powdered sugar - some dogs have very negative gastric reactions to corn.

I run all my dog treat recipes by my vet, and ask him about potential problems. It's amazing the things that are bad for a dog's system, so if you try something new, please do the same.

what exactly is almond bark? is it white chocolate? I have read that white chocolate is ok just not normal chocolate. I do plan to talk to my vet, but i am trying to get an idea of what recipes are going to dry properly and work for me first. thanks!!!!

you might want to try some yogurt powder for your royal icing. Its easy to find online . Trader joes and I think whole foods carries it.
