Westie Cookie Cutter

A spirited little Westie (West Highland White Terrier) is another sugar cookie that I decorated for this blog. The steps, of course, were:
cut the sugar cookie dough with the Westie cookie cutter available at Cloud K9®, bake the cookies, and let them cool.

First, I iced the cookie with a tube of white cookie decorating icing.

Then, I added details with black decorating icing. A toothpick always comes in handy for adding the little details (like the whiskers).

I like the crisp color combination of black and white on this cookie. Of course, you could make the collar in any color that you like. You could match the collar to a certain theme or holiday:

*Christmas: Red and Green Collar
*Valentine's Day: Red Collar with a tiny Red Heart

*St. Patrick's Day: Green collar with a small Green get the idea!

You can also add shredded coconut before the icing sets/dries.  Gently press the shredded coconut into the icing.  (If you add the coconut after the icing has dried, it will not stick.)  Gently turn the cookie upside down to remove any excess coconut.  The coconut will give the cookie the appearance of textured "fur."

Yumm! Yumm!
