Today is Dr. Seuss’ birthday. I really wish I would have planned ahead and got some Green Eggs and Ham cookies done in honor of his birthday and Read Across America day. But alas…. I did not. So if you need some Dr. Seuss ideas, please go check out Sweet Sugarbelle’s site today. Please. I’ll wait for you to come back.
Are you back? Weren’t they great? I especially love the cookie cupcake picks. I’m totally going to do that one of these days.
Well, since I didn’t get my rear in gear to get Dr. Seuss cookies done, then I guess it’s a great day to feature another Wilton cookie cutter set!
I promise I’m almost done with this batch and then we can move on. But first, we have the Wilton Pet Cookie Cutter Set.
They call it a “Pet” set, but a more accurate description would probably be Dog or Puppy set. There are no cats, hamsters, fish or gerbils here. So if your pet happens to be a dog, then this will be a good fit. Actually, the paw could be a cat paw. But other than that, you’re going to need to get creative if you’re a cat lover.
There’s a paw cutter.
Green paws? I was trying to make some colorful choices– does the green paw work? Not sure. And I really wish I would have done the blue one with a darker blue. I was kind of going for the “sit down in my thinking chair and think. think. think.” look (if ya know what I mean… wink wink), but I missed the mark. Dark blue probably would have done it.
There is a dog house cutter.
I like that picture. But it doesn’t show the back ones very well. So here’s a more boring picture so you can see the details.
I used a Gourmet Writer to do the lines on the bottom left dog house, and to write “Fluffy” on the top one. I generally like piping better than gourmet writers for writing, but I did really like how the lines on Fifi’s house came out. That’s where I really like the edible markers– with accent lines, wood grain, stitching, etc.
There’s a bone cutter.
Which would be great for making actual doggie treats for your dog. I don’t have a recipe to share, but if you do a google search, you’ll find tons. I don’t have a dog, so I didn’t want to whip up a batch of doggie treats. I think I’d really have to love a dog to do that.
And last, but not least, the doggie.
Woof! Again– trying to add some color to the dogs, so I used red and yellow. Definitely not realistic, but kind of cute anyway.
And a mixture:
