I was super excited to have such a sweet assignment as my first cookie job of 2013… A few months ago I was contacted by Maria and Kelly of Ritzy Bee Events. They asked me if I could create a custom wedding favor based on one of their engaged client couple’s “furry beloved”, Miley the bulldog. Of course I was happy to oblige!
Everyone knows I am totally obsessed with my own dogs, Spot & Hope Fiori, so I feel a special kinship with anyone who feels the same way about their furry family members!
In the past I’ve used sanding sugar or tried to mock up fur with icing strokes but this time I decided a less was more approach would be best. After all, what makes Miley extra adorable is her smooth fur, tan ear and little touch of pink at the other ear… I also noted that her eyes and nose should play off each other size wise. I played around with the adding a mouth but in the end decided that the large, brown M&M nose and small piped on eyes captured her perfectly.
Miley the Bulldog cookie success! I smiled the entire time I packaged these and was thrilled to hear that everyone loved them too.
Congratulations and All Good Things to Heather, Ryan & Miley! Thanks to Ritzy Bee for starting off our cookie calendar year in such an extra sweet way! Xo Dani
