Decorated Moose Cookies

Moose Cookies SweetSugarBelle

Last week, when I shared my decorated bear cookies several of you wanted to know more about Mr. Moose. You know that old saying, "Ask and you shall receive?"  I'm pretty sure it wasn't referring to moose cookies, but we'll overlook that today.

Panda Bear Cookies

Panda Cookie Platter for Chinese New Year_Sweetsugarbelle

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed an unfortunate lack of bear face cookie cutters on the market today?  The ones I've found are either way too big or way too small.

I used simple circle cutters to piece together these panda face cookies.  When … [Read more...]
